Matthew Ryan
Matthew Ryan
Matthew Ryan is experiencing a kind of noisy renaissance. It began in 2014 with the release of Boxers, a fevered and smart rock ‘n’ roll record about the working class, produced by Kevin Salem. In May, Matt released the follow-up with Hustle Up Starlings, a heart-on-the-sleeve collection of silvery anthems that further illustrate his reinvigorated love of language, noise and cinema.

Produced by Brian Fallon from The Gaslight Anthem, Starlings shimmers with an immediate and captivating focus. The 10-song set clocks in at 40 minutes with no prevarication or bluster, just a celebratory noise alight with hearts and history, broken-in voices and poetry.
