Matt Wertz to release NEW album (FREE MP3) + tour dates w/ Gavin Degraw, O.A.R.

Matt Wertz

“He makes melodic pop music that begs for radio play”Boston Globe

Matt Wertz is from Liberty, Missouri, but has called Nashville, Tennessee, home for the last seven years.

It seems fitting that he would be writing his own biography on the cusp of his first major label release, just as he did eight years ago before releasing his first independent album. This time, though, he’s not trying to play it off like he didn’t write it.

Matt goes on to say “The record that will be released on Universal Republic is called ‘Under Summer Sun’ and it is a combination of my favorite songs from my first few independent releases, like “5:19″ and “Everything’s Right,” as well as four new songs. Among the new tracks are “Waiting,” an introspective bedroom song that deals with the fear that I’m “growing old but not quite growing up,” and “Summer Sun,” my best effort at a nostalgic summer love song in the vein of Stevie Wonder musically and Don Henley emotionally. And the rest of the songs will strike a chord with anyone who enjoys soulful, carefree, singer-songwriter pop music.”
