And today? It is Mr. Matt Wertz.
There are a few musicians in town whose music I liked before I lived here. In most cases, becoming friends with the musician only made me like their music more.
[Except in one case when I was all, “Hey. I used to like your music but I think you are a total putz so I’m pretty sure your music is lame.”]
But that wasn’t Wertz. I have nothing but the highest praise for Matt Wertz. He writes good music because he lives well. He is a good friend. He makes me laugh until my sides are totally aching. I absolutely adore him.
When I hear his music, it is who he is. It is true and honest. But it is also pop music and loud and a good time. This album is fun and deep and lovely and it is everything Spring. Your kids will love it. Your friends will love it. You will love it.
I absolutely adore this album.
So buy a copy of Weights & Wings, roll down your windows, and blast that puppy.
Speaking of Matt, here is something super cool. Like whoa cool.
Matt is an artist with Mocha Club. For $7/month, members on Matt’s team support the Women at Risk program. Through this program, former prostitutes in Ethiopia are given counseling and training and education so they are able to make an honest living.
And here’s what Matt is doing- anyone who joins Mocha Club and begins to donate $7/month to the Women at Risk program, he will give you a FREE COPY OF WEIGHTS & WINGS.

Right? Amazing. So Matt’s just giving away one of the greatest new albums in 2011 if you will help women in Africa.
That’s nutso. And amazing.
Either way, you win. You always do.
