You will find a variety of different things on Mat’s website. It’s not super busy by any stretch of the word. However, in the upper right hand corner, you will be able to play some of his music and get a taste of his “almost own” genre. I also suggest you check out his journal. Some interesting items there also.
Mat is not really new to the music scene. In fact, a lot of his music is in very popular places. He has a lot of music on TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Scrubs, The Unit, Without A Trace, Laguna Beach, The Hills, Bones, Jericho, Friday Night Lights and more. But this album, which came together in 2006, is just now getting Christian radio attention. The music really stands alone as an album with a great variety of styles. I’d would’ve never thought that acoustic guitar and rap could flow together so well.
The first track, Undeniable, will make you feel like Jesus is just simply your closest Friend who will not judge you regardless of your actions. The second one will make you wish you had a convertible and nothing but time to cruise the coast roads. Girl America and What’s a Boy to Do have some powerful words and similarities. A girl with no dad for a protector and a boy with no dad for a role model.
Rap is not my favorite genre of music. Christian or not. But this rap is so comfy to listen to, you might change your mind here. Mat is also the writer or co-writer of all the songs. He has poured himself into this with some of the most poignant lyrics imaginable. Stuff that will make you think.
It’s a great CD and I’m glad I bought it. If you enjoy new and not so much the same old thing, you will love this CD as well. I really fell hard for this, I give it a 6/7 stars. An exemplary set of songs.
