Matt Hires Digital
"Honey, Let Me Sing You A Song" is currently impacting at Triple A radio outlets nationwide. In addition, the track's companion video is streaming at Hires' official MySpace page, www.myspace.com/matthires
Hires is currently heralding the album's release by supporting fellow Atlantic recording artist Paolo Nutini on his North American tour (see attached itinerary). A charming and charismatic live performer, Matt – who recently shared stages with such like-minded artists as John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band, Marc Broussard, and O.A.R. – is next slated to join Tyrone Wells for a [insanely overused cliche removed] fall co-headline tour.
The first full-length release from Atlantic's new F-Stop Music imprint, "Take Us To The Start" marks the arrival of a self-assured and authentic new artist.
On tracks such as "State Lines" and "You In The End," the Tampa, Florida-based Hires fuses the intimacy of the great singer/songwriters with indelible pop-rock hooks and propulsive rhythms. Produced by Eric Rosse (Sara Bareilles, Tori Amos), "Take Us To The Start" is filled with multiple delights, most notably Hires' remarkable voice, an instrument striking in its warmth, expressiveness, and ability to convey a multitude of emotions within a single song.
