Mat Kearney
19.11.2019

Years before he toured the world as a platinum selling, boundary-breaking artist, Mat Kearney grew up in Eugene, Oregon. It was during those teenage years that he developed his love for classic songwriting — the kind that transcends generations and genres. He’d strum chords on a friend’s acoustic guitar, paving the way for a career that would eventually take him far away from Eugene.

Much has changed since those days in the Pacific Northwest. Even so, Kearney hasn’t forgotten his musical roots. On his fifth album, CRAZYTALK, he mixes his most timeless songwriting to date with a wide, genre-bending set of interests. There are organic instruments, electronic samples, chill house grooves, tropical sounds, and collaborations with DJs like AFSHeeN ,filous, and RAC all glued together by an emphasis on ageless hooks and thought-provoking lyrics. The result is one of the most adventurous, nuanced albums of his acclaimed career, filled with EDM drops one minute and acoustic guitars the next.

It’s a sound that nods to Kearney’s history as a melody-driven songwriter, even as it pushes him into new territory.

„Back in Oregon, I was a punk skater kid who fell in love with Lauryn Hill, Tribe Called Quest, and Bel Biv Devoe,“ he says. „At the same time, I also loved playing my buddy’s guitar. In a way, I’ll always be that kid, drawing from the influences I grew up with.“

Combing classic songs with modern, beat-heavy production, CRAZYTALK offers up a sound that’s both cerebral and visceral. It’s music for the head and the heart, but it’s also music for the dance floor.

„At my core, I’m a songwriter,“ adds Kearney, who produced half of the album in his home studio in Nashville. „I wanted to explore new production ideas with this album, though, to see how I could frame these songs in a different way. CRAZYTALK has some deep house influences, some African samples, some tropical sounds, and a lot of electronics — things that wouldn’t normally be found in a singer/songwriter record — juxtaposed with some classic songs. It’s a sound that really occupies its own lane.“
