Product Notes

Matt Griffin is a singer-songwriter based in Somerville, MA. His songs are deceptively simple; subtle, but simultaneously straightforward and emotionally clear. Long a fan of both rock and folk music, he has brilliantly blended both styles on his debut solo CD, Forty Minutes Off Your Trip. From the straight - ahead acoustic rock of Fell in Love, through to the gentle fingerstyle denouement of The Weather, this CD is truly a forty minute journey through the mind and heart of a unique songwriter and performer. The journey takes you through the traditional songs Little Mohee and Wreck of the Old 97, which Matt got from his Grandfather Murble Matthews' singing, through politically charged numbers like This is Home and Conny's Room, through pop charmers like Give You My Heart (which is not a love song, by the way, at least not in the traditional sense), and At Sea With Love, with many stops in between. Every song is different, yet it's all of a piece. The band for the record is basically a three piece, with Matt on guitar and vocal, Malcolm Travis (ex-Sugar, ex-Zulus, ex-Human Sexual Response) playing drums and Rich Cortese, who played with Malcolm for many years in the Zulus. There are guest appearances by Billy Gee (ex-Marvin GayeÕs touring band), Lyn Doiron (ex-the Willard Grant Conspiracy), Kris Delmhorst, Jim Bouchard (brother of Albert and Joe), and fine backup vocal work by Malcolm's wife Susan.
