I “met” Matt Steady on his Twitter page just recently and check out his free download. That’s right! I said a free song download!!! Yep, and not The Whispers’ 1987 Rock Steady type stuff. The Matt Steady – Blood Is Thicker Than Gold type stuff.
I’m so thankful for the entire 11 track album download that MattStoicSteady shared with me for this review! All of these opinions are 100% mine. For DownhillRun disclosure information please click here.
So what is Matt Steady music? Ok, I’m no music expert. I’m just a gal who enjoys listening to good music. This collection is a mix of old school rock, some folky, some bluesy, and all original sound. This album somehow cohesively covers all these genres plus a little celtic mixed in! I don’t think that Matt Steady’s music is something that can be put in a corner, categorically speaking.
Who is Matt Steady? A singer, songwriter, and accomplished musician with many different instruments under his belt. At a young age he learned to play the piano and violin and also played in orchestras and choirs. After he was a little older, but still a youngster by far, Matt picked up a second hand electric guitar and started playing. He also played and sung in a church band which helped him to learn to improvise and built his confidence for performing live.
The rest, as they say, is history!
The Blood Is Thicker Than Gold album should be something in music history. After listening closely to each track, it now plays while I’m working in my kitchen. For me, this would also be a top pick for a cruisin’ soundtrack. Are you looking for some summertime cruising music? Then check out Matt Steady’s album on his bandcamp page.
Want to know more about Matt Steady? He is on twitter with 12,000+ followers and still took time out to message me back. Such a nice guy! He is also on facebook where he just announced a release of a new track Steel and Rust that was a collaboration with Darren Ellis Music. Keep up-to-date with this soul filled indie artist through his social media sites or even his website mattsteady.com.
Thank you again Matt for letting me listen to Blood Is Thicker Than Gold for this review! I’m enjoying your music and look forward to more of your original tunes!
