Description

Riverhead's own Matt Marshak performs his new album "Simple Man" live in Riverhead on July 27th. Matt's new album brings together a "heartfelt" collection of tunes in the country/roots/americana styles. Having recorded 10 albums in the jazz and blues instrumental genres, this new album brings Matt's unique and soulful voice into the spotlight. His well known guitar tone is also featured on both electirc and acoustic guitar on the new album. The debut music video for this album was also filmed in downtown Riverhead with a nostalgic scene shot live in "Poppa Nicks" Star Confectionary.

How does a guy from Long Island end up recording a country music album? It all started with a show in Nashville where Matt had the chance to meet Cara Hogan and Steve Dean. Dean's credits include #1 songs for Rodney Atkins, George Strait, Alabama, and Reba Mcentire. Hogan and Dean flew up to NY and the three songwriters wrote four songs in Matt's home studio. One of the songs "One in a Million" is based off of Matt's journey as a musician from Long Island. "Prayer For You" is a song of hope for those who have lost their way. "Tell Me Something Good" is a song about wanting some good news in this world. The album was mixed by Ben Wisch (Marc Cohn/Walking in Memphis), and Billy Hume (Infamous Stringdusters). The album features Michael Webb (Chris Stapleton), Andy Ellison (Jon Pardi), Chris Marshak (Steve Winwood), Jon Preddice (Miles To Dayton), Pat Falco, among many other great NY and Nashville musicians.

We invite you to come out and hear original music from one of Long Island's most unique and original songwriters. Matt will also be playing his new song "495," a song about the Long Island Expressway!

See you on July 27th!
