Southern California based singer/songwriter Matt Westerman has just released a stunning performance video for the song “Sunrise.” The video features Matt performing at dawn in the Southern California mountains accompanied by cellist Danica Pinner.
Matt had this to say about the song:
"Sunrise is about getting in touch with your spirit. It is about cutting out all the excess noise and getting in touch with who you really are underneath it all."
“Sunrise” is featured on Westerman’s debut EP “Life Out Loud,” which has received praise from critics. Huffington Post called the EP a “compassionate debut collection of six uplifting and hopeful tracks that fans of the tried and true acoustic guitar wielding songwriter will be easily drawn to.” Substream Magazine called the EP “nothing short of triumphant,” while Atwood Magazine said that Westerman crafted “a finely felt out piece of musical poetry that comes from the heart and speaks to the heart.” The Low Down Under remarked the EP is, “Accessible, warm and bursting with optimism.”
“Life Out Loud” is available now via Spotify, Amazon, iTunes, Apple Music and more here.
To celebrate the release of the record, Matt performed at the legendary Mint in Los Angeles on Friday November 10th with a full band to a packed crowd.
Featuring bright stand-out tracks like “One Fine Day,” “She’s More,” and “Don’t Give Up On You,” “Life Out Loud” is sure to win over admirers of the singer/songwriter genre and fans of modern contemporaries like Passenger, Jack Johnson, and Brett Dennen. By fusing his main influences that range from Neil Young to Dave Matthews to Coldplay, Westerman has crafted an original collection of songs that expertly fuse the pop sounds of the past and present.
