My latest obsession is a very talented young man from Australia by the name Matt Corby. He possesses a voice that is as much an instrument of sound as his guitar or piano. He modulates and exploits it with tender finesse to achieve some truly hypnotic effects. His style is listed by iTunes as Indie Rock, but in a much larger sense what he is doing is singular, multi-derivative and without pretense.
You'll hear R & B, Gospel, Acoustic vocal throughout his music. It's at times so fresh that it doesn't hit the mark, but when it does--truly magical.
I was born on a bitterly cold end of January night in the year 1961. It was seven years to the day after the birth of Oprah Winfrey, and one year before the death of Robert Frost on that same day. Cool associations both.
I was the first child of older parents (my mother was 42). I love the color yellow. I am single, and fascinated with life.
