Reimagining The Essence of Soulful Country Music: Matt Malone Unveils “The Frontlines.”
(Los Angeles, CA) June 23, 2022 - Country music is one of those genres that commonly uses the same lyrical themes, whether it’s about loss, culture, religion, or most commonly, love and heartache. Singer-songwriter Matt Malone has tapped into exactly that, creating his own invigorating folk-infused, pop-country ballad. “The Frontlines” is Malone’s sophomore album, recorded with award-winning producer and engineer Bill Palmer at Torreón Studio, a professional full facility recording studio in Santa Fe, NM.
Going about his artistry in a natural, unembellished fashion, Matt Malone is seen teaming up with Jon Graboff (Ryan Adams & the Cardinals, Willie Nelson, Norah Jones), who played the pedal steel on a few of the songs. Running 27-minute in length, “The Frontlines” illustrates a story about leaving something behind.
While his 2020 debut record, “Handle,” revolves around the phase of breaking up, “The Frontlines” is a reflective and optimistic album about starting over. The restlessness that inspires change, the nostalgia that occurs after leaving, and the excitement, anxiety, and even sadness of a new chapter. Known for penning songs that come straight from the heart, Malone exhibits his vulnerability, honesty, and storytelling exceptionally well.
