Nashville singer/songwriter Matt Urmy was in town singing some songs from his new album “Out of the Ashes” to be released March 31, 2017. I saw him and his friend (also named Matt) perform a set at the Hotel Café Second Stage yesterday in Hollywood. He opened with reading one of his poems, then a drinking song. Right up my alley!

He said he can’t sing but actually Matt has a fine, expressive, raspy voice reminiscent of Bob Dylan or Tom Waits. More pleasant to listen to though. His lyrics are outstanding — very poetic and well crafted.

Matt is a charming and magnetic performer, and we wish him much luck with the new album. I met him briefly after his set and he could not have been kinder or more friendly. For more information about Matt Urmy, visit matturmy.com.

For more information about Hotel Café Second Stage or their other Main Stage, visit hotelcafe.com. This is a small, intimate café in Hollywood that features high quality singer/songwriters before they become more widely known. I have always seen great musicians there. They maintain an impressive, very high level of talent; yet have a relaxed, informal vibe. It’s a very comfortable, fun place to spend an evening.
