Why You Should Check Out Matt Andersen and Halfway Home By Morning!
Unbridled joy springs eternal from Halfway Home by Morning. Recorded live off the floor in Nashville, Tennessee, celebrated songwriter Matt Andersen’s tenth album collects all the essential elements for a down-home ramble and shoots them through with enough electrifying energy to drive the rock ‘n’ roll faithful to simmer, shimmy, and shake. Over its 13 tracks, he explores every facet of his sound. Comprised of sweat-soaked soul, incendiary rhythm and blues, heartbroken folk, and gritty Americana—and binds them together with palpable heart, as the band leaves everything they’ve got on the sweet old hardwood of the Southern Ground studio. The same spot that legends like Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, and Jerry Lee Lewis turned up the volume ‘til it couldn’t go up anymore.
Halfway Home by Morning is the sound of an artist doing what he was born to do, laying his soul bare using the music that can’t help but run through him. And doing it with more jubilation than he ever has before.
