Those of you who got to hear matt back in October of last year, will want to be at the Rear Window as he returns to the stage to dazzle us with his electrifying show. Matt is a consummate performer that is a delight to listen to.
Here's what people are saying about Matt ...
Matt the Electrician About the new CD, "One Thing Right", Performing So... About the new CD, "One Thing Right", Performing Songwriter says; "Sever is being modest-despite the title, he's doing everything right."
"His musical confections remind me of butter mints, the small white fluffy kind that instantly melt in your mouth. After each song finishes youre left with only a pleasant taste."-Vintage Guitar Magazine
"...as carefully crafted and insightful as good Paul Simon. With a raspy voice and subtly complex arrangements, Sever brings a delightfully different energy to the often hidebound folk scene; electrifies it, actually."-L.A. Daily News
"The Austin native has averaged a top-notch album every couple of years, endeared himself to a small, rabid fan base and mined a goofy/profound folk vein similar to that of Arlo Guthrie, John Prine and Loudon Wainwright III....So far, Sever's gotten five things right."-Harp Magazine
About his 3rd CD; "Made for Working is a near-perfect record"-John Shelton Ivany, New York Times
"His songs have a childlike quality, a youthful sense of humor that in lesser hands might come off as downright silly.his wordplay is deceptively sly and, like the best tunesmiths, his melodies are remarkably direct and simple."-Jim Caligiuri, No Depression
"songs wrapped around rootsy arrangements so casually perfect that you'll need a twelve step group to dislodge your ears from the sheer pleasure."-Sing Out! Magazine
"I feel like I should just save a spot on my end of year list every year for whatever Matt the Electrician has done."-PopMatters.com, Terry Sawyer's Best-of-2003 list
"Matt the Electrician proves singer/songwriters can be funny without being clowns and thoughtful without being overwrought."-Brian Baker, Amplifier
