“Matt Bliton serves up an eclectic blend of styles from folk to rock and blues, even tinges of Irish or jazz. His full throated delivery of covers and originals stir up ghosts of Bob Dylan or Neil Young, but without a touch of imitation. A terrific writer, his lyrics touch, inspire or amuse. Check out Matt Bliton!”
– Mike Stratton: radio host and producer of “The Vinyl Side of Midnight” on WLNZ
“Poet and raconteur Matt Bliton writes in that sweet spot where folk and rock meet. Weaving honest, mindful tales with a tenor that cuts through the noise of a restless modern life, he taps into the struggles of the everyday man. His close-to-the-core lyrics and catchy melodies invoke intimacy and refreshing familiarity.
Featuring veteran musicians such as Drew Howard, Joshua Davis, Ray Kamalay, Matt’s newest album, Solid Ground, recorded at Glenn Brown’s studio, is a who’s how of Michigan troubadours, and offers a stellar collection of resonate, warm songs that elevate and remind us to exist in the moment.”
– Corinna Van Hamlin: long-time host of Progressive Torch and Twang on 88.9 WDBM and the current host of the MI Music Box on WLNZ.
