“Matt seems to find just the right words, just the right notes to reach the deep places. To say his music is moving, would be an understatement. As a listener, I am glad I found Matt’s songs. As a songwriter, I wish I had found them first!” ~ Steve Meckfessel

Showcased on June 21, 2015 Show -This is based on a story my Dad wrote in a letter to his three adult kids at Christmas in 2007, recounting some of his childhood memories growing up in the depression in Hot Springs, Arkansas. This included one Christmas where some kind folks provided presents and a tree for the family, and under that tree was a metal toy airplane, the famous "China Clipper".
Showcased on June 21, 2015 Show - Coming up in August 2015, I'll be traveling to West Yellowstone, Montana to play music at the Speak For Wolves event being held there. Writing songs can take you to unexpected places. This song was a gift that also brought me back to some core early experiences. I was in Yellowstone around the time wolves were reintroduced in 1995 and I am looking forward to seeing the descendants of those early wolves in the wild, where they belong.
