Artist DescriptionWhen you listen to Matt Hires, what comes across is the sound of an artist self-assured, authentic, and at ease with being completely and utterly himself. On his debut F-Stop/ Atlantic release, Take Us To The Start, the 23-year-old Florida native fuses the intimacy of the great singer/songwriters with indelible pop/rock hooks and propulsive rhythms. The result is a mesmerizing collection of songs that are immediately enchanting, while becoming more deeply rewarding with each listen.
Produced by Eric Rosse (Sara Bareilles), Take Us To The Start is filled with delights, most notably Hires’s voice, an instrument striking in its warmth, expressiveness, and ability to convey a multitude of emotions within a single song. From the first notes of “Honey, Let Me Sing You A Song,” Matt’s vocals envelop the listener, creating an intimate, captivating realm.
