Matthew Ryan – featured on the charity compilation Joey’s Song
Matthew Ryan released “Mayday” in 1997 and it became an instant classic. It is a template record for a million garage bands and the obvious progeny of the Tom Waits bloodline. It is Matthew’s ability to find meaning in the common and to describe beauty in the everyday that makes him so beloved by his fans. And Matthew’s choice for Joey’s Song for Kids exemplifies this credo as well. Matthew has recorded “You Are My Sunshine”.
