MATT MORRIS BONAROO SAMPLER LINK / DATES

matt_small_phixr.jpgOn September 23rd, Matt Morris will release “Backstage at Bonnaroo and other Acoustic Performances,” a five-song EP released by Tennman Records.  

The EP provides audiences a first look at a rising artist who is unafraid to speak his mind. That same week, Matt will embark on a 22-date US tour supporting Grammy-award winner Joan Osborne on her Little Wild One tour.
 
Matt blew people away at Bonnaroo. The head editors of Rolling Stone interviewed him for over an hour (ending up giving him an “up-and-comer” nod) and he and Charlie Sexton (co-producer/performer of the album) gave an amazing impromptu performance for SPIN Magazine in their media tent (video link of that below). I have sent you a link to a website we have built streaming the songs off the EP. Please take a listen when you get a minute. To me, his sound is like a mix between Freddy Mercury and Jeff Buckley. From Timberlake: “He’s kind of like Ray LaMontagne meets Elton John meets Stevie Wonder meets Rufus Wainwright.”
