CD REVIEW: Matt Hartke "The Organic Shelter EP"

Organic Shelter
Matt Hartke is one of those singer/songwriters that knows his craft well. Hartke has returned with a short selection of new music that showcases his songwriting more than ever before. Essentially the EP is about love, and with two songs both named after girls and another entitled "Awakening Hearts'" it's easy to see that writing songs about this subject come easy to him. The EP is also incredibly organic, with the simplistic and stripped down sound of the music, highlighting the lyrics and Matt's guitar playing at every moment possible. Matt Hartke is a poet that sings, and this EP proves that point so well.
