Artist: Matt Epp, Album: Safe Or Free, Song: Crying In Mexico

Matt Epp is a singer songwriter from Manitoba.  He released his debut album in 2005 and to date, has released 5 full length albums.  He has collaborated with other Canadian artists like Amelia Curran, Matt Mays, Rose Cousins and Bahamas (see blog 1/22/11).  What is really remarkable about Matt, is that he decided to pick up music in his early twenties.  He had no musical training on any instrument prior to that.  Safe Or Free was his fourth album released in 2009.  Crying In Mexico is a wonderful piano ballad from that album.  Matt actually sings in Spanish towards the end of this track.  He's maintained that Spanish connection to his music with his latest offering in 2010.  His new band features a couple of Spanish musicians as well.  Matt is currently touring across Canada in support of his new album and will be doing some European dates in the fall.  You can follow him at http://mattepp.com/.  You can purchase the album, Safe Or Free, on Itunes.  You can hear the track, Crying In Mexico, on You Tube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rus4Ex1HHR4&feature=channel_video_title).  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
