Many of you may not know Matt Wertz, but you should. I came across his music a few years ago thanks to a friend and have now seen him in concert twice. Matt sounds even more incredible live than on a record. He's always made great music and has a great presence but with his latest ep While We're Becoming Matt has really grown up and come a long way from his earlier music sounding a lot like later John Mayer with songs like Somebody New. This album is about a lot of feelings you go through not just while you're in love but while you live your life. What's worth noting about Matt is that while he could be a major label recording artist he chooses to stay on the Indie scene and stay focused on the music. Take a listen to some early Wertz and then the new and see if you feel the change. I think that while I may like the older Wertz stuff simply because it is so fun and upbeat the new Wertz really touches something deeper and as I grow as person can really relate to. Whether you like old Matt or new Matt I hope you enjoy!
