Matt Wertz is from Liberty, Missouri, but has called Nashville, Tennessee, home for the last seven years. It seems fitting that he would be writing his own biography on the cusp of his first major label release, just as he did eight years ago before releasing his first independent album. This time, though, he’s not trying to play it off like he didnâ€™t write it. Matt goes on to say “The record that will be released on Universal Republic is called “Under Summer Sun” and it is a combination of my favorite songs from my first few independent releases, like â€œ5:19â€ and â€œEverythingâ€™s Right,â€ as well as four new songs. Among the new tracks are â€œWaiting,â€ an introspective bedroom song that deals with the fear that Iâ€™m â€œgrowing old but not quite growing up,â€ and â€œSummer Sun,â€ my best effort at a nostalgic summer love song in the vein of Stevie Wonder musically and Don Henley emotionally. And the rest of the songs will strike a chord with anyone who enjoys soulful, carefree, singer-songwriter pop music.”
Matt Wertz has already sold over 70,000 albums and 250,00 tracks independently and has also been featured on Yahoo! Music “Who’s Next”, and AOL Breakers.You have heard his music in the movies ‘My Super Ex-Girlfriend’, and ‘Employee Of The Month’, as well the television series ‘Brothers and Sisters’, and ‘Laguna Beach’.
