Biography

There’s nothing like the feel of a favorite old t-shirt paired with a worn-in pair of jeans. Some of the best things in life move into their prime as they age, making them more enjoyable, more valuable. And so it is with the music of Matt Wertz, a handsome Missouri-born soulful rocker who has been splitting time between his home in Nashville and hundreds of stages around the world for ...

Editorial Reviews

The Missouri native's fourth album is now available in a limited-edition vinyl
release. It will be housed in a deluxe gatefold package, hand numbered, with
the songs divided into a new sequence - "Weights" on one side, and "Wings"
on the other.
The album was named before any of its songs were written, and the concept
of Weights & Wings not only acted as a compass for the project, but also
helped guide Wertz personally, as well. I got the title from a daily meditation
book that I read, Wertz explains. It s the idea that the heavy things in life
and the transcendent times are both equally important in propelling us on
and through life. There have been a lot of hard days in the past couple of
years, and it s reassuring to know that they ll be put to use, that they re
imperative to my life, and that I need them to balance out the other end.
All of the songs on Wertz s new album are tied to relationships, and each
track delves into what the singer has learned about himself and others during
that last few years. More than ever, the reflective songwriter has his heart on
his sleeve, and Weights & Wings is the very incarnation of that lifeline.

It goes from mellow and poetic to fun and poppy and then back to mellow again.

I've listened to this album from beginning to end twice in a row, and I love it! It goes from mellow and poetic to fun and poppy and then back to mellow again. It's a great CD from beginning to end, and he has one of my favorite voices that is singing today.

If you've never heard Matt Wertz before, you are in for a treat.

I've been a fan of Matt's music since his first album, which he made out of college. Not only is he one of the most likeable and genuine musicians on a personal level, he's consistent and a talented, honest songwriter. He's been previewing the album on his Ping, and I've had it on repeat all week. Every track is good, but my favorite tracks so far are: Everything will be alright, Nobody's you, Running back to you, Feels so right, Don't come easy and Gonna be good. If you get the chance, I highly recommend seeing him live. He's funny and really gives `er. Note: you will be asked to sing and clap in syncopated rhythm. It's basically the most fun you'll ever have.

Love this cd - "Feels So Right" is my fave so far. Matt Wertz is a great alt-country-rock artist - if you're new to his music, check out "5:19" and "Carolina" from his Where We Started EP.

This is Matt's best album to date. From the opening chords of "Don't Come Easy" to the uber-catchy "Running Back To You" this record shows Matt has learned how to write great pop songs without compromising his emotional delivery. Favorite album of his so far!

I found this album from the Amazon sampler pack. I was quite amazed at what a fresh sound Matt Wertz has in this album.
Crisp voice, whimsical tunes, and just a really upbeat-tap your feet and bob you head music. Glad to add this to my collection!

Matt Wertz never disappoints and this CD is no different. It is a fantastic mix of new songs that have great feeling ang honesty. From carefree to contemplative, the lyrics run true. This is a great album.

I recently downloaded Weights & Wings to try out the Amazon cloud music player. I've enjoyed listening to this album in it's entirety multiple times. Unlike many other releases lately, each track on this CD is a keeper. This is one of the best CDs I've purchased in recent months.
