Mat Kearney is somewhat of a rhyming lyrical savant – for a white dude, if you don’t mind me saying. He calls himself the hip hop kid and blends beautiful melodious choruses with the occasional lite rap verse.

As much as I love Mat, I didn’t expect him to be a great performer. He seemed like one of those guys that just sounds great on an album thanks to heavy production, but I am happy to say that he sounded incredible live. No gimmicks or tricks – he was pure and talented, and his voice sounded just like it does on his albums. He was backed by an awesome band, and all in all they gave a non-stop, high-energy performance. It was over too soon. [Ventures In The Slipstream]
