Matthew V has consistently impressed me with his releases. Always bringing an elegant approach to his sound (likely in due to an impressive ten years of classical operatic vocal training), this Canadian talent mixes hints of soul with RnB to form songs that have an almost timeless essence to them.
“I wrote ‘Around Here’ when I was mentally and emotionally diving into the past. It’s about the town where I grew up. I wanted to finally look back with some perspective on my formative high school years and how they shaped me for better and for worse. I think everyone has times in their life that they associate to certain places. For me that place exists actively in my mind and this song helped me process that.”
