Matt Townsend has become a highly regarded musician hailing from Asheville, North Carolina. Recently we are treated to his latest venture which comes in the form of The Drifter and the Dream (Part 1). A blissful record from start to finished, Townsend puts a new spin on a vintage sound. The 5-track masterpiece was recorded by Michael Selverne. Performing across the country for over 5 years, Townsend creates the perfect record, as it dives deep into his musical musings.
The Drifter and the Dream (Part 1) features the lead single, "Came Down from the Mountain," which I have gravitated to immediately. The timeless sentiments also come to life in songs such as “Katie,” which brings a classic Folk and Americana quality to the record. A great deal of time, effort and love was put into recording The Drifter and the Dream (Part 1) which definitely stands out.
Matt Townsend brings a unique and retro sound to the table, one harmony at a time.
