His mix of traditional and contemporary instrumentation is inspired and paired with what I would call trad folk lyrics, sung in a voice that would suit the darkest of dive bar blues (think Tom Waits). Yet his vocals soften beautifully for tracks like The Blacksmith and Long Road Home.
Matt wanted to use this album to tell a story, he’s done that and so much more. Definitely an album to lose yourself in, on those long winter nights in front of an open fire
