Hi everyone, since I've last updated, I'm very pleased that I've gotten two more bits of great press.
Lonesome Highway said this about my upcoming Demons album: "In a more laid-back setting Happy Hell and the more forceful It Look Like Blood makes the Nick Cave comparisons more apparent with its Biblical connotations and the dualism of light and dark."
A sneak peak of my 2nd single, "Happy Hell" was recently premiered on Glide Magazine: "There’s no denying that Matt Jones who performs as Two Cent Revival has a knock-em dead voice that permeates with the rustic flair towards the north of the border 70’s singer-songwriters mixed with certain familiar outlaw country stalwarts. It’s a trusty gravitas that stirs alongside a storytelling knack in the vain of Colter Wall and Ryan Bingham...Glide is premiering the stunning “Happy Hell,”which proves Two Cent Revival needs to be heard amongst the burgeoning folk movement alongside those with way less clever artists names." I've been following and enjoying Glide Magazine for some time now, so it's really wonderful to have my music written about my them, and glowingly so.
I can't wait to widely release "Happy Hell" on streaming platforms June 10th! Thanks everyone for being a part of this continued musical journey with me.
Hi everyone, I've finally gotten my act together, and created a blog on my website! I'll post periodic updates here about my musical releases & press, and other bits of Two Cent Revival news, and other related things. Hope you dig, and feel free to comment and ask questions.
In exciting 2021 news, I'm working with Baby Robot Media, a fantastic PR & marketing firm, who is supporting me as I release, "Demons," an 11 track Americana/folk album, on September 3, 2021 (I'm releasing 5 singles before the full length album release).
Here's what has been happening so far:
- On May 13th, I released my first single "Crow" on all platforms, which you can stream it on Spotify here, and click here for even more streaming options (single art below by Lauren Kolesinskas).
- On May 18th, I was thrilled that Americana UK premiered the animated video for "Crow" (which you can also watch directly on YouTube here), and Andrew Frolish wrote thoughtfully and positively about the track, which I really appreciated: "Travels the dusty road between the almost-spoken storytelling of the desert-noir verses and the soaring, anthemic choruses... lyrics that have the feel of a new southwestern myth, imbued with a sort of desert magic." Lovely!
On the immediate horizon:
- On June 10th, I'm excited to be releasing my 2nd single, "Happy Hell," which you can presave on Spotify here!
