Matt Duke: Kingdom Underground

Matt Duke
Kingdom Underground
Rykodisc [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
One look at this cover and you think that Matt Duke could be your best friend, college roommate or even the guy bringing you pizza. It is this instant likability that translates to his simple singer/songwriter release Kingdom Underground. It has a balance of up tempo tracks and ballads that sound good to the ear. Is this album going to change your world - no - will it put you in a good mood - yes!

Key Track: "30 Some Days"

Band With Similar Fire: Mat Kearney
