Praise for Matty Ride
“Something new, refreshing, slightly retro, but yet highly addictive for our ears. Man, this sh#t is too dope. ” - Jesse James
“Matty Ride is bad to the bone ” - Tommy Sims
— Grammy Award winning Artist and Producer
“Matty Ride is an artist with one foot in pop music’s fabled past and another in his own bright future. I think he’ll continue to find that the grass is green on both sides. ” - Jared Wolf
Matty Ride recaptures the spirit of the American Songbook through his original ‘Vintage Pop’ compositions. His clever rhymes, tongue in cheek topics, and witty lyrics showcase an urbane sense of style and playfulness. Originally hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Matty Ride grew up in the very stomping grounds and hometown of Bing Crosby. It's there that his love for the great singers of the American Songbook such as Nat King Cole, Sinatra and of course Bing Crosby, took hold. Matty’s warm crooning vocal style, paired with his uptempo big band arrangements and sentimental ballads reflect these inspirations of yesteryear, and give a nod to the modern day likes of Harry Connick Jr, Michael Buble and Jamie Cullum. Ask Matty to describe his music and he'll tell you with a laugh "I'm just making the type of music your grandparents made your parents to."
New Release - Sugar On The Side
Song Bio - Sugar On The Side
'Like honey and hot chicken, biscuits and jam, coffee and cream, everything goes better with a little sugar. And just like love, it’s up to you to put in the right ingredients, “you make it up as you go, but it always goes better though, with a little sugar on the side.”
I’ve always loved how songs back in the day had a way of ‘saying it, without quite saying it’. There was always another way to describe lovin’ in a funny, tongue in cheek kind of way. It’s almost as if they would be telling you with a wink “you know what I’m talking about”. So after listening to my new single “Sugar on the Side” I hope you’ll know what I’m talking about ;-).'
