Review

One of my top ten 2009. Matt Harlan is a songwriter's songwriter. Paints a vivid picture of even the most simple things in life. You are there, you are a part of it and you can feel it. Add that pen to his incredible voice and you have a talent that must be heard by all. --Shayne Hollinger, KCUB Stephenville, TX

Matt Harlan first came to my attention via a local NPR radio program called "Folk Salad" (KOSU). I had never heard him before but I was very impressed, enough so to search for a CD to buy. The song "Elizabethtown" reminded me of Walt Wilkins and I wanted to hear more. This is a CD for anyone who likes Texas singer/songwriter music. Excellent songwriting, great production work from Rich Brotherton (who has worked w/ Robert Earl Keen), "Tips & Compliments" is a high quality piece of work. I'm looking forward to what comes next from this guy.

I just got this CD and can't quit listening to it. Everything about it is fabulous --- the songs, the singing, the playing, the production, the artwork, all of it. This is my favorite new music in a long time. Will look forward to what Matt does next. Count me in ---
This is a CD that you will enjoy for years --

Don't want to bore you with details about how I knew about this man, live shows....This is a MUST HAVE album for the ones who love Texan Songwriters. Personally I'd place it between Townes/Earle and Hayes Carll/Ryan Bingham. Great and personal style, touching lyrics. In a word GREAT. 100% guaranteed! Ciao Matt, --talk to you soon.

About three weeks ago a good friend whose recommendation we trust completely told us that Matt Harlan was playing a show here in Austin, and that he was someone we shouldn't miss. We made the show, and were very impressed with his singing and playing...but especially with his songwriting. This man could play rings around himself on the guitar, all the while pouring his heart and soul into songs that are filled with deeply considered lyrics, spinning stories that leave the listener feeling as if the singer is sitting across the table relating them personally, conversationally. That's a rare gift, and Matt Harlan has it in spades. Despite those guitar chops, he never comes across as showing off - everything is there for the sake of the song, which is just as it should be. The characters he conjures are as real as they could be - and by the time the song is finished, it feels like you've known them. They're `everyman' and raw individuals at the same time.

Matt's words flow out of him in a natural way, but with the lapidary skill one would expect to find hidden in the hands of a master jeweler. Take this excerpt from `Walter', a song remembering years in the presence of a beloved dog belonging to the singer's grandfather (but what is a memory, and how often is it completely real?): `Singing li-la-li, lie-le-lie, sometimes it takes you by surprise - the time it takes to write a simple song. Sifting through the sands of time, like souvenirs you've left behind, you can't always decide what you remember.
