Matt White Heading Out On Tour
Matt White will be hitting the road this fall in support of his sophomore release, It’s The Good Crazy. The singer, songwriter and piano phenom kicks off at Los Angeles’ Viper Room on Oct 20th and then covers cities throughout the Northeast, Southeast and Midwest until the beginning of December. He will be accompanied by his band and playing material from the new album.
Matt White will also make a quick stop back home in New York City to appear on the CBS Saturday Early Show’s Second Cup Cafe on October 23rd.
The Early Show performance is the latest in a wave of nationally-televised appearances (Entertainment Tonight, ABC News and Access Hollywood) and press adulation for Matt White. Artist Direct rates It’s The Good Crazy 4.5 out of 5 stars, stating “Matt brings us back to when pop was fearless.” AOL Popeater claims “when it comes to writing catchy piano-driven songs, Matt White is a seasoned professional.” Billboard adds that “the lead single, ‘Falling in Love (With My Best Friend),’ is a sugary earworm with playful acoustic guitar and smart, simple lyrics.”

Olbermann followed the clip with a great outro saying, "Something from the late comedian and transcended commentator, Bill Hicks, which we'll show you about once a week with the kind permissoin of his family. That's from 20 years ago and it's still as fresh as today's headlines."

Will Hoge's The Living Room Sessions Out 10/12
The six-song acoustic EP was recorded in only two days in Hoge’s living room and features stripped-down versions of essential songs (“Long Gone,” “Favorite Waste of Time,” “Goodnight/Goodbye,” “Too Late Too Soon” and “Even If It Breaks Your Heart”) from his latest album, THE WRECKAGE, and the fan favorite, “All Night Long,” from Hoge’s 2003 album, BLACKBIRD ON A LONELY WIRE.
“I like acoustic recordings that try to be different from the album versions,” says Hoge. “We just got together and camped out at my house for a couple of days… it’s not a home studio, no real fancy set-up or multi-tracking. The console was a laptop on a card table, and that same table also served simultaneously as the keyboard stand. There were no real overdubs or re-dos or pitch correct. We just did it ‘til we liked it and let it be…not out of laziness, it just seemed to fit.”
Hoge, the relentless road warrior, kicked-off his headlining tour last weekend in Nashville, which will continue through October. He’ll then join rockers Shinedown on their “Anything & Everything” tour kicking-off Nov. 4 in Tampa, Fl. and wrapping up in New Orleans, La. on Dec 9. The tour spans over 25 major cities throughout the Midwest, Southeast and Northeast regions of the United States. More dates will be announced shortly.
