I've been lucky enough to get to know Matt Hires a bit since I first met him at The Lookout in Maple Grove for Fletcher's Ice Olympics. SO, I'm SUPER stoked to have him (and the Wild Feathers) joining us for Sun Soaker Thursday this week at Maynard's!
I've been excited about Matt being a musical guest for quite awhile now, long enough that I've had ample time to ponder what songs he might play.
It's cliche, but I definitely wanna hear "Restless Heart". How could I NOT wanna hear that? Check this out, instead of posting the video for the song, thought I'd post something you maybe missed or didn't know about......
I really hope he plays "Signal In The Sky".....I think the vocals on this song are one of his best performances and I LOVE content of the lyrics. I think the next song, below, will also, at least partially, explain why I want to hear this song so bad......here's a taste of what it might sound like Thursday.......IF he plays it. :)
Yes, I know this next song isn't Matt. Over the past couple months getting know Matt I've realized we share an all time favorite artist, Elliott Smith. (By the way, the previous song "Signal In The Sky" reminds me of a "Matt-Elliott song" and I think that's why I like it so much).....SO, all that said, I'm really hoping I can talk Matt into doing an Elliott Smith song. We've discussed, but we won't know if it's going to happen til Thursday. Fingers crossed.
Ok, sheesh, I couldn't pick just ONE Elliott song, so here's one more. You might remember this song from the movie, Goodwill Hunting. (You can tell videos weren't a real priority for Elliott)
What song would YOU like to hear Matt do!?
