CD Review: Matt Costa Breaks-Out His Best Work For New Album

Singer/songwriter Matt Costa is one of the premier artists on Brushfire Records (Jack Johnson’s label). He has worked with Jack Johnson, Ryan Adams, Oasis, G. Love & The Special Sauce and Death Cab For Cutie amongst others. His new, self-titled album will be released on February 12, his fourth full-length album through Brushfire Records.

Beginning with “Loving You” you get a sense that Matt Costa wants to break out of his folk-storytelling role into a more pop-rock area. His voice and groove on this album are very infectious as he puts his touch on this opening up-tempo gem. The song “Early November” carries a very retro-style, compared to the raw, garage rock of “Good Times.” Matt’s signature sound is still heard on the songs “Shotgun” and “Ophelia” as his songwriting just keep getting better with each new album.

Matt Costa will be embarking on his tour on March 15, beginning out west and making his way eastward. For more information on Matt’s new, full-length album and for a complete list of live dates, please visit
