Matt Marque
Matt Marque is a singer songwriter from Chicago that composes brief melodic vignettes in a naive and surreal style reminescent of Freedy Johnston. His hoarse, half-whispered register has few precedents (possibly Nick Drake and Kevin Coyne in Britain). "Get There" is full of beautiful tunes enhanced by discreet arrangements like "Unknown Flowers," "Mello Hello," and the sublimely romantic "Here We Are," that, voice aside, hark back to Donovan, Simon & Garfunkel and Syd Barrett, with even one incursion in Bacharach-ain pop, "Collage Made Of Air." While not everything shines, when it shines, it is epically simple and genuine.
