“promises to be a thoughtful piece of work that demonstrates Urmy’s feel for the way rock, country and pop intersect...the most fascinating Nashville album of the past decade… 10 songs of Americana poetry filled with a smoky mysticism and irreverence befitting Clement’s out-of-this-worldview, paired with a sound that evokes The Band, Ryan Bingham and Todd Snider..an intelligent and adventurous project — at turns joyful, curious and gloomy — but it’s also something more. It’s the story of a quirky old genius and a clued-in kid who forged an unlikely bond.”
"Matt is a rare and visionary poet."
