If you’ve frequented JonALi’sBlog at all in the past few months, then you already know about my very deep and very personal love affair with contemporary country-pop belter Mathieu Blue, a New Hampshire-bred singer-songwriter currently living in NYC.
With each passing song, from June’s “EveryTime” and the “EveryTime (Matt Blank Summertime Remix)” to his latest release, “Alien,” the blue-eyed crooner has consistently turned out emotionally charged fresh tunes filled with inspiring hooks and soothing, country-pop rhythms. And now, he’s ready to complete his mission.
Today (September 14), Mathieu has dropped his debut Here EP, complete with five songs: “EveryTime,” “Alien,” “Avalanche,” “Here” and “EveryTime (Madscience Remix).” “‘Here’ is a compilation of 4 songs I’d written and recorded while living here in NYC. How cool, right? That’s a dream come true in and of itself,” Mathieu told Jon ALi. “Each song of the EP carries its own torch: Heartbreak, Self-Love, Strength & Courage, and Hope are apart of all our journeys in life. It’s my hope when writing a song that it’ll spark emotion in the listener and get people back to ‘feeling’ again instead of shutting it off. We can’t live our true purpose while muting our hearts.”
And to celebrate this release. . . Mathieu will be hitting the stage live TONIGHT, 9PM, at Metropolitan Room in Manhattan (34 W 22nd St). If you’re in town, be sure to check him out. $15 (See flyer below).
