And She Whispered I Told You So
As one fan has put it 'Music that feeds the soul and smoothes the rough edges of life' A review from Amiestreet: 'If you frequent the same kind of used-to-be-smoky clubs that I do, you're surely familiar with the very specific elation one feels when an unknown performer quietly takes the stage, acoustic guitar in hand, and his first notes cut clean and true through the din of conversation and clinking glasses. Your ears perk right up. This kid can play, you think to yourself, and he can SING. I wonder what his name is... Matthew Gair's record And She Whispered I Told You So...is the closest approximation to that feeling you can get without actually being in a tiny club. It sounds so live that I found myself straining to hear the audience in the background. It's as if you could reach out and touch the guy. It was only when, a few songs in, an echo effect is applied to a vocal line in Assisi, that I was convinced that I wasn't just hearing a live recording. You really get a little bit of everything with this one. From the man-do-I-wanna-compare-this-to-Raffi album opener Friday, to Blue Side Down, which sounds like it's a not-quite-joking tribute to Tenacious D's 'Tribute,' Matthew Gair covers a lot of ground and still manages to maintain a consistent, inviting sound.' Praise from Fans: 'take me Home - i can picture Matthews home so well. It's vivid.. i could spend a lot longer sitting by that pool, ice cold beer in hand.. Awesome!' (Tristan Waterkeyn) 'Tap your feet to the beat and whirl away, away, away. Trip out for a couple of minutes and enjoy the ride.'(S. Shomi) 'Well played guitar and vocals, great lyrics'
