CD REVIEW: Matt Wertz "While We're Becoming"

On the way to making a new full length album, Matt Wertz decided to record a short EP of new music to keep the fans' appetite satisfied. The EP, which features five new acoustic tunes, shows off one of the things that makes Matt Wertz one of the best independent artists making music: his lyrics. He always prides himself on having his lyrics be the driving force behind all his music, and whether its poetry or storytelling, Wertz's lyrics always make a connection with the listener. These are songs that are welcome additions to Matt's catalogue, and require no rerecording, remixing, or reinterpreting on future releases.
