Artist: Matt Massey
The most successful and creative artists are often the ones who have endured emotional struggles throughout their lives. While the conflicts they have contended with are distinctly unique, these difficult experiences bring people from all backgrounds together. Singer Matt Massey is powerfully exploring that vital journey of coping with the obstacles that have crafted people into who they are today in his new rock single, ‘Built.’ The hard-edged and intense song, which powerfully explores the authentic connections that form as a result of personal strife, is featured on the musician’s new solo debut album, ‘Dear Today.’
‘Built’ enthrallingly emphasizes Massey’s emergence as an indie rock solo artist, who has successfully broken free from traditional band situations, and embraced his deeper artistry. In addition to singing on the gritty, rock-infused track, the Ft. Worth based singer further proved his true musical background by also playing the guitar, bass and drums. His biggest musical influences, including Nirvana, Tom Petty and Collective Soul, clearly shine through on Massey’s powerful blend of vocals and instrumentation. His classic rock vocals provide him with the potential to share his relatable struggle to put all of the broken pieces of his past back together, and build a better version of himself.
The musician clearly expresses his profound new understanding that he’l be facing new challenges as a solo artist, including being in complete control of creating every aspect of the vocals and instrumentation. With ‘Built,’ Massey has lived up to the journey of completely expressing his personal thoughts and emotions. His liberation makes the single the perfect tune to be performed live for audiences who truly understand his circumstances.
Massey has stunningly proved that he has finally accepted the task of embracing his rock roots on his new solo material, particularly with the release of ‘Built.’ The single proves that the tunes he writes now are the culmination of everything he has always wanted to do, and the experiences he has undergone. As part of his solo debut record, the musician’s new song powerfully explores the all-too-important journey of coping with the obstacles that have crafted people into who they are today. But most importantly, the hard-edged and intense track compellingly explores the authentic connections that form as a result of personal struggle.
