Matt Urmy
is a New World poet….an Artist that will get your ghost dancing in circles. Born in New York City, but raised in Tennessee, he walks in the footsteps of free thinkers. His performances weave listeners between the gritty free verse of the 1960’s and smoking folk-country blues. Labelled an “Americana” artist, his voice is etched with the weathered years of life polished with the sad pangs of hope that mirrors the depth of his writing. http://matturmy.com
This is the first album recorded in the
Owen Bradley's "Quonset Hut" Studios in 28 years, the oldest studio on Music Row, where hit makers of the day like Johnny Cash cut “Ring Of Fire”, Patsy Cline (“Crazy”), Roger Miller, (“King Of The Road”) etc made their hits, in the process establishing Nashville as Music City USA and founding Music Row, back in the day.... And Matt Urmy recorded the record you now have in your player now, (I hope) the first record to be made there since it was closed down in 1982.
Matt Urmy’s Renaissance Rodeo, featured on the recent Red Beet Records “East Nashville Vol.3 More Music From The Other Si...
Released by Eric Brace’s Red Beet Records). along with Elizabeth Cook, Phil Lee, Anne McCue's, Kevin Gordon, Stephen Simmons, Chuck Mead, Kieran Kane, helping introduce Matt to a European audience and receiving airplay and compliments from around Europe. Please find four tracks from his brand new album, on which he joins up with Jonell Mosser, Ashley Cleveland and Mary Gauthier,
I cannot simply listen to any Matt Urmy song once. Every line is wrought with subtext and meaning that distils our existence — our lives. One reviewer wrote “Matt’s part wolf, part river, part moonlight, and part cloud…oh yeah, and part human too…” I say this is not just music that should be heard, it needs to be heard, please help!
Motivated by his artistic passion, his music grows each year—a true “lifetime artist.” This is fuelled by his driving and overwhelming work ethic, (90 self-booked and promoted shows in 2009), as well as his compelling love for music and language.
Pictured here with Mary Gauthier during the Sweet Lonesome Sessions (who inspire the title track). Recorded live—just like the old days. I hope you agree, this recording captures an energy not evident in most modern Nashville recordings. Keeping the sound true to the room, and live, the music breathes with the urgency of life—just like Matt wanted it.
Musically, Urmy played for more than a decade in the Knoxville scene with bands such as the Whiskey Scars—honing his performance chops with live audiences, but Sweet Lonesome is his first truly Nashville album. A natural entertainer, Matt combines a the rare abilities of being able to connect directly to audiences, with his years of experience performing his songs, presenting very personal, and very professional performances.
He has come home with this red-blooded, B3-stoked blues-rock project which I hope will grab your ears and won’t let go. Sweet Lonesome brings together seemingly opposite impulses. Opening with a recitation of “Communing” — a poem from his published collection Ghosts in a House, then grinds into “Stone in the River,” a muscular, 12-bar shuffle that Jonnel Mosser and Ashley Cleveland heat up with a sultry call-and-response. Then Urmy’s shadowy, ground-scraping rasp drives the bus home with some crisp and gritty, elemental blues.
Renowned Tennessee poet and songwriter, RB Morris says of Urmy, “Matt’s a really fine poet and songwriter, and a great live renderer of it all. He’s lifted the creative warrior spirit among us, and that’s what we need.”Face Book www.facebook.com/pages/Matt-Urmy/97152603377?ref=ts
