“ “I was so happy to hear the latest new music from Matthew Curry. I’ve always really admired Mathew’s music, ever since he, and his band began playing shows with us, maybe 6, or 7 years ago. The audience loved his well crafted songs, soaring guitar solos, and soulful singing. We were part of that audience. He is the real deal. His most recent album, ‘Open Road‘, is further proof that Matthew Is continuing to hone his formidable chops. Mathew rips it up on the title track, which reminds me of a Delaney & Bonnie style Eric Clapton tune, and I say this with admiration, since that is one of my favorite Clapton eras. ‘On My Way’, is just great rock ‘n roll, in sort of a Skynyrd vein. ‘I Think Of You’, a beautiful ballad of lost love, and hope. Then there is some extreme angst in ‘Workin’ It Out’. A really interesting production, and once again, some killer guitar playing, and amazing vocals. Every song on the album has something special that sets it apart, and makes this a complete package. I’ve listened to all the songs several times, and I continue to hear things I hadn’t noticed before. There’s so much great music on this recording. I can’t recommend it enough. Check it out, I know you’ll feel the same!”
