With each release Eric Matthews continues to just get better and better ! He is a keen observer of the human condition & expresses himself with smart pop songcraft that is subtlety influenced by the great ones ( Bacharach / Wilson / McCartney /Gibb etc.). All the while he has forged a unique musical identity for himself . Which is not an easy thing to pull off anymore . In the era of streaming music services & digital downloads that emphasize singles ... it's a rare & wonderful thing to hear artists such as Matthews who makes full length records with intention & attention to the details .
There is a certain reverence for the art of songwriting that runs right through the core of what this guy does & as is evidenced here ...
( a maxi single with 4 tracks) a real & honest value
to his work as well. This is just a little glimpse of his forthcoming & long anticipated Too Much World LP which is set for a Feb 2017 release . Yipppee !!
