Listen to Matt: Homecoming
I am thrilled to announce the launch of my debut solo jazz guitar album called Homecoming.
This album is very personal to me, as it tells the story of my return to my hometown in Northern Ontario after being away for 25 years.
The songs on this album are inspired by my experiences of reconnecting with my roots, my family, and my community.
Northern Ontario is a unique and special place, with its vast wilderness, rugged landscapes, and friendly people.
These themes are reflected in the music, which ranges from soulful ballads to upbeat swing numbers.
I have poured my heart and soul into this project, and I hope that you will enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
Homecoming is now available for streaming and download on all major digital platforms, including:
I would be honored if you would take the time to listen to the album.
Thank you for your support, and I hope that you enjoy Homecoming.
