An Intro to Matt Epp

Thought I’d try something a little different here. In the recent past I’ve talked about picking up a Flip Camera, with the main goal of adding more video content to my site. Well, above is round one. Its really rough, shaky and full of umms and ahhs, but honest and proof that there’s a human behind the helm of this site.

Looking forward to making more videos of live shows, interviews and other random things. If you’re a youtube subscriber, add my channel to your list. Now, a little more on Matt Epp.

Living on the road crafting songs from his experiences, Winnipeg’s Matt Epp has a way of putting the listener right there, as an observer, on his travels and relationships he develops along the way. His newest record is ‘Safe or Free’ (not ‘Safe For Free, as I say in the video above), co-produced with John Paul Peters (Waking Eyes, Comeback Kid) and recorded at Private Ear Studios in Winnipeg. The record features Epp’s accomplished songwriting, with duets with Brandy Zdan of Twilight Hotel and Jesse DeNatale. A great listen all the way through.

Try out the opener, ‘This Old House‘.

Matt is currently on the road supporting the release, upcoming gigs below. Also, check out the video for ‘They Won’t Find The Bodies’.
