Indie Artist Matthew Neves releases Second Album

Boston, MA, August 14, 2013

 

Independent recording artist Matthew Neves will release his second studio album entitled, “You and Me” on August 21, 2013. The predominantly pop rock album, which features 14 original songs, was recorded and produced in its entirety by the artist himself at his private recording studio in New Bedford, MA.

 

In classic Matthew Neves style, “You and Me” delivers the same great vocals, ingenious melodies, inspiring lyrics, and remarkable musicianship we first fell in love with on his debut album, “Everybody Dreams.”

 

Matthew kicks off “You and Me” staying true to his Beatles roots with the contagious “Impossible,” a mid-tempo song about a stubborn and self-righteous girl. Next is the mellow “Long Way Home,” which emphasizes life’s spiritual journey. The third cut, “Eyes of an Angel,” is a touching soft rock ballad conveying an uplifting message of living in the present. “Robbery” continues the ballad-esque vibe, with a dreamy-like cadence, taking us through the turmoil of unrealized dreams. Then, the upbeat sing-a-long, “Square One,” reflects on an incompatible relationship. Even more infectiously melodic, “Days of Summer” will have you reciting a “live life to the fullest” anthem. We then transition into the down-tempo track, “Gonna Miss You,” a poignant dedication that inspires hope for anyone dealing with the loss of a loved one. Following is the enticing “Sweet Candy Kisses,” whose playful yet taunting repetition manifests the danger of falling in love too soon. Track 9, “Searching for Heaven,” envelops the blues, both melodically and lyrically. “Misery Loves Company” changes pace, conjoining a feel-good beat with catchy lyrics and hooks. Next, the rock track, “Today Is the Day,” revs your engines – get ready to party like a rock star. The album then closes with two beautiful ballads: “Something Special for You,” which imparts God’s special plan for everyone; and “My Dear Anna,” a song about a long distance relationship.

“You and Me” will be available at most online retail stores including: iTunes, Amazon, MTV, eMusic, Rhapsody, and CD Baby. Be sure to give it a listen, your ears will be thanking you.

 


 

Indie Artist Matthew Neves Releases Debut Music Video


New Bedford, MA, July 16, 2011

Indie recording artist Matthew Neves will release his debut music video on July 16, 2011. The video features the hit song "In The End" from his "Everybody Dreams" album.

"In The End" has reached over 10,000 internet radio plays on the popular internet free radio website, Jango (www.jango.com), and was featured on NECN's The Morning Show on March 7, 2011. The song received rave reviews by music critiques from IAE Magazine and ReviewYou and has yielded regular rotation at over 70 stations nationwide including a coveted spot on the playlist of Cape Cod’s highly popular rock station, PIXY 103.

Matthew scripted and directed the video. It was filmed and produced in hi-definition by SOS Films, a Boston-based video production company. Casting included one leading role played by actress and model Thais Oliveira, five supporting roles, and twelve extras.

The video features scenes from landmark places in the New Bedford, Massachusetts area including the New Bedford-Fairhaven Bridge, Zeiterion Theatre, and New Bedford's own Downtown District.

Although Matthew won the coveted "Suggested Artist Placement" award for his hit single "I've Been So Far Away," he chose "In The End" for his first music video. The two songs run neck and neck in popularity and a music video for I've Been So Far Away" is likely to follow.

Indie Artist Matthew Neves Gains National Attention


New Bedford, MA, February 02, 2011
By Sarah Mulvey

Indie recording artist Matthew Neves has been steadily gaining national attention as a singer, songwriter, musician, and producer. He released his first solo album, Everybody Dreams in late June of 2010. Since then, he has been gaining popularity as songs from the album have reached over thirty-thousand internet plays.

 

Everybody Dreams is a collection of contemporary Pop/Rock songs that showcase Matthew's broad range of musical prowess. Every song on the album was composed, performed, and produced by the artist himself. The album has been picked up by major Internet digital music distribution sites including iTunes, Amazon, Emusic, Napster, Rhapsody, MooZone, Zune, Jango, Great Indiemusic, CDBaby, and DigStation.

 

Everybody Dreams was selected for review by IAE (I Am Entertainment) magazine, one of the fastest-growing digital interactive entertainment magazines on the web, and received a perfect score of 4 out of 4 in the December/January 2011 issue. In her review, Leslie White wrote "Great songwriting, remarkable lead vocals, and awesome production, you won't be disappointed."

 

Matthew is an independent unsigned artist who has worked with companies such as The Planetary Group, CDBaby, TAXI, Sonicbids, and Jango Airplay to distribute and promote his music. He has also utilized the social networking sites Facebook and MySpace to connect with over 3,300 friends and fans.

In his first big live show, Matthew performed for an audience of over 20,000 as the opening act for Chuck Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night, at the world renowned Feast of the Blessed Sacrament in New Bedford, MA. His next big show was with Nina Sky at the Sky Room, the hotspot of the local music and club scene.

 

Matthew is planning a Northeast tour in 2011. His ambitious plans have been bolstered by his growing success on the airwaves. Locally, two singles from the album have won a coveted spot on the playlist of Cape Cod's highly popular rock station, PIXY 103. In November, 2010, Matthew used The Planetary Group to launch a national radio campaign which has yielded regular rotation at over 70 stations nationwide. He has also begun production on a new music video with SOS Boston that will feature the single "In The End" from the Everybody Dreams album.

 

Matthew's passion for music is his driving force. He performs regularly at local venues and continues to compose and record in his private recording studio. Matthew plans to release a few singles in 2011 and perfect a new batch of songs for an upcoming album in 2012. In a recent interview, Matthew stated "My ultimate goal is to reach international audiences with my music". As he sets higher goals, Matthew's strong work ethic and passion will continue to guide him in his blossoming career.
