Being named Singer/ Songwriter of the year in 2013 at the 11th Annual Texas Music Awards and taking home the prize for Americana Song of the Year in the Billboard International Song Contest in 2008 are just two of the many honors bestowed on Houston based musician Matt Harlan in a relatively short career that has already achieved remarkable international success. Each of the three CD’s Matt Harlan has released to date reached #1 on the Euro Americana Chart, an impressive accomplishment considering that Americana music is in many ways more popular in Europe than it is here at home. Here’s a sampling of what critics have to say about Matt Harlan’s music:
“24-carat Texas folk/country songwriting is alive and well in Matt Harlan’s head and hands… By a clear mile, Raven Hotel is the finest song collection I’ve stumbled across this year — in many a year, for that matter. An ageless 21stCentury creation in the mold of those classic 1970’s Texas folk/country songwriters.” – June 2014, No Depression Magazine
“Harlan does not write about mindless Saturday night revelry. Instead, he elegantly captures Sunday morning redemption and regret.” – CMT The Edge Website
“…it really does come down to the songs, and if others want to be taken seriously as Texas singer-songwriters, this is how good they have to be.” – Third Coast
