While a lot of artists today struggle with identity there are those who can achieve the impossible with the music industry today, thus creating a signature sound. Mathew Chase’s signature guitar intros and strongmake his album Everything well rounded and easy to listen to. Just like its title Everything is both eclectic while sticking to his roots of and rock inspired melodies.
It’s a very upbeat CD with titles like “Within Your Eyes,” “Feel You Near,” and “All You Gave.” He has a soft, soothing voice to top as icing on the cake of guitars layered under it, almost reminding me of some ’80s New Wave artists. He has an agreement with iChannel for digital HD radio and a licensing agreement with MTV networks, which I’m sure is getting him great airplay and is also rehearsing to promote his new album. So be sure to show support to an artist whose sound has definitely been perfected.
