The latest release from young UK acoustic singer/songwriter, Matt Woosey, ‚Wildest Dreams,‘ is another positive triumph. Woosey‘s previous two offerings, ‚On The Wagon‘ and the EP ‚Hook, Line & Sinker‘, were both excellent. It was hard to see how he could follow through with his next release. But Woosey has pulled it off again; indeed, he has done it in spades. Another simply stunning ten-track CD full of his instantly recognisable guitar work and fabulous songs, a seamless fusion of Americana and raw down-dirty blues.
This guy just gets better and better, stronger and stronger, and is clearly extraordinarily talented. This has to be the main contender for ‚album of the year‘.
The maturity of the song-writing and playing skills on display belie his age; this is one dude who is certainly going places fast.
If you buy only one album this year, make it Woosey‘s „Wildest Dreams‘. (Radar Music Records)
