Matt Nathanson: Pop's New Love and Obsession

If you love girlie music like Jack Jackson, The Fray and John Mayer, then you HAVE to know Matt Nathanson. VH1 voted him as the “New Artist on the Rise” this year. He’s had hits on Gossip Girl, Grey’s Anatomy, NCIS, One Tree Hill, and pretty much every other popular TV show.

Though I guess you can say that he's somewhat "retro" because he had a hit on Dawson's Creek.

A few months ago I featured his newest album but I had no idea that he’s so charismatic until I saw him in concert at a small bar in Montreal a few nights ago.

He was amazing. Here’s a snippet of a video I took at the concert featuring his current hit “Car Crash”.


Matt is also a great entertainer and he has a great sense of humour. He cracked me up so many times on stage. Did I mention that he’s also cute and charming? He came out from backstage about 15 minutes after the show ended and signed autographs & took pictures with the fans. I’ve never met anyone that keen on meeting their fans!

Of course I kept my cool when I met him… Are you kidding me!? Here’s what really happened:

And yes I was wearing my DSK on my big night. hehehe.

… and he was SO NICE! It was totally worth the 2.5 hour drive to Montreal to see him in concert.

If you like some of my retro Friday picks, I ask you to give him a listen on my Mixpod on the right because you will love his songs! And also when he becomes famous like John Mayer in the next few years you can say how cool you are that you know of him BEFORE he got famous :P

Also one of my girls Ela is having a giveaway! She's giving away one of Kym's handmade print tees, so go check her out here!
