iTunes wants your money & CA wants my heart:
California was amazing. The weather was absolute perfection & I came out of it with some new friends. Playing 2 shows at Room 5 with Jake Newton (accompanied by the insanely talented Justin Glasco) & Cafe Muse with the lovely Jamie Bendell, made the horrendous flight all worthwhile. Both venues had their charms, and it was great seeing a lot of people that I haven't seen in a long time. That they all brought friends was just a icing on the cake. I have to say, the highlight was closing my set at Room 5 with "Jubilation & Jealousy", and having Jake & Jamie join me on stage...what they added to my song was pure beauty, check it out:

You can now download the Digital 7" on iTunes!...but apparently I can't set the price lower than $1.98, so if you feel like paying an extra .48 go for it!
If that .48 is precious, as it so often is, I recommend going through the less popular though just as effective Bandcamp site, music.EsMatteo.com
One of many things to be thrilled about right now, is seeing something I've been picturing for a long time become reality. My "discography" is beginning to look like a James Vanderberg online gallery (see image)...and will, even more-so, when the full album is released next month.
To be able to showcase the talents of my friends has been a goal of mine for a long time, and you can bet your ass I wouldn't slap his work on an album cover if I wasn't a fan. This is a success if one person finds his art through mine, and that's a good feeling. Support the arts!
Great days ahead folks...come say hi at a show. Next up: Rockwood Music Hall - Tuesday, Feb 22nd - 7pm!
