Thanks so much, No Depression, for the kind words on William Matheny's newest 14-song EP, Moon Over Kenova. We think it kicks ass, too.
"Moon Over Kenova" is a humbling song for any songwriter. It's not so much the content as the fact that Matheny makes a song like that seem as effortless as a flick of the wrist.
"While the EP repeats a few songs, you won't realize that. As assured a songwriter as Matheny is, he's also a heck of a bandleader. By providing a few recordings of the same songs, we can see how Matheny and his band can paint entirely different emotional palates with the same lyrics."
