Matt Costa :: Songs We Sing
i first heard matt costa when he opened for jack johnson two summers ago. like jack’s music, matt’s songs are the kind you find yourself humming in your head. i knew immediately that matt costa would be a name i would find as a headliner in the not too distant future. the only thing i thought might keep him from being a big star would be the folksiness of his pop.
so i was super-excited to hear one of my fave matt costa songs, “cold december,” on the radio today just as i was lamenting the seeming lack of any good music on the radio lately. i only caught the end of the song, and i hope he hasn’t toned down the folksy sound for this re-release of Songs We Sing. still, it’s exciting to see a lesser known artist with a unique sound on mainstream radio. [goodness knows i’ve had enough of 3 doors down and the pussycat dolls.]
my fave tracks from the album (the 2005 release anyway)
 Cold December
 My Sweet Rose
darn, this 2006 release has a bunch of different songs, which means i’ll have to go and buy it…
