Matt Urmy on www.hardcore-troubadours.com
It's podcasting time again!! This time poet and musician Matt Urmy sat down with us for a very pleasant afternoon. We had so much fun, in fact, that we talked for 3 hours. To save your sanity, I've distilled the conversation and the music down to just under and hour. For you listening pleasure, you can get the 'cast at ITunes, or simply download it here (right click and 'save file as').
Matt is wonderful, but if you want the true experience of what it was like in the HCT living room that day, I suggest you listen to it after only 5 or so hours of sleep, when you are hungover and have started drinking at lunch time. I won't admit whether those were the exact conditions of the day, but recreating those conditions might actually make us sound less obnoxious (or at least you'll understand us better).
Matt is one of those people you want to spend a starry, warm night on the porch with. Bottle of whiskey, guitar, fireflies and endless delightful conversation. He's pretty, he's smart, he sings with a soul-nicking raspiness. I've never had conversation with that I didn't leave inspired.
