I invited Matt Mahaffey to sing you some songs…

In Chicago, people truly covet and take advantage of nice, comfortable days because mother nature doesn’t release enough of those to take any of them for granted. When one graces you, it’s not one to spend inside. Doing nothing. The refreshing and sunny skies entice you to get out and enjoy what’s been presented to you. And with Matt Mahaffey, it’s no different.

The one man jam virtuoso only lets us come out to aurally play so often with his rather long hiatuses between releases and live gigs. But when we do receive one of his gifts, it’s a breath of fresh air that wafts out of my speakers; a sound that makes me stop doing whatever it is I should be doing. I become engrossed in his quirky pop sound usually in a cycle of loops. Endless ones. Thanks to Nashville’s Lightning 100, Mahaffey invites us to a session, one that feels casual, a session amongst friends, one that like always, begs to be not taken for granted.

Over 21 intimate minutes of Matt, a retro sounding piano, and what sounds like your very own sElf session. In what we’ll call your family room meets swanky piano bar.

    I’d like to see the footage of him singing that track backward.

    Also, his jacket could use a good pressing. He should hit up Mary.
