We had the chance to chat with Morson about his new single and so much more!!
Worlds of Country: When did you know that music was something you wanted to pursue?
Matt: I guess I always had a feeling I wanted to pursue it. Looking back at my childhood, I was obsessed with music and learning guitar. It was part of me. I guess my early 20s were when I really started taking it seriously and pushing myself.
Worlds of Country: Once you knew, what was your first big step towards making this dream a reality?
Matt: I started writing like crazy. I wrote good songs, bad songs, great songs and terrible songs. I played any gig I could, too. Just really any opportunity to cut my teeth, so to speak.
Worlds of Country: How would you describe your musical style?
Matt: All over the place. I definitely lean more into rock/blues. I like the combo that mashes into with country. I try to write a solo and story into song. Sometimes the instrument can say things the mouth cannot.
Worlds of Country: Who would you say most influenced this style?
Matt: I cannot give the credit to one artist. I have been molded and inspired by many. From Lightfoot to Maiden, Bingham to Whiskey Myers I have many to thank in a way.
Worlds of Country: What’s the story behind your new single, “True Country”?
Matt: It’s a song about me and my kin. It’s a song that says country is for everyone but don’t forget the ones that aren’t usually sung about. The poor ones. The struggling ones. The ones that need a song most.
Worlds of Country: What’s next for you?
Matt: Whatever I can do. I intend to release another song later this year. If all goes well and the wind is in my favor, then I will keep pushing myself and hopefully hit mainstream successes. All you can do is keep moving forward!
