One note can be so much more than one note. When singer/songwriter Matthew West produces one sumptuous tone over a hypnotic cycle of chords, the listener's ear bends toward the bottomless depths of his vocal timbre. It doesn't hurt that the songwriting is excellent, too.
"There's a sign on the door, says, 'Come as you are,' but I doubt it," West croons over a sparse backing of acoustic guitar, bass, drums, and women singers. "''Cause if we lived like it was true, every Sunday morning pew would be crowded."
A commanding voice, evocative words, and music that draws you in—that's the singer/songwriter tradition at its best.
