Alone Review - The E. KO

May 1, 2002

Unlike many of the artists that we've covered, I have recently lended an ear to a different aspect of the local music scene. Bringing to mind the likes of Dave Matthews and Gordan Lightfoot, amongst other alternative, pop and folk singers, Matthew Golay's recent solo release Alone, is nothing short of an inspiring collection of eclectic heartfelt melodies. Recorded at Garage In The Sky Studio, and produced by both Matthew Golay and Jeff Verner, the release is an acoustic outing, fronting deeply impassioned songs. Being Matthew Golay's third release to date, the effort is brought on with hook-filled mood and tempo changes, drawing from a pool of reflective qualities.
