Matt Corby Appreciation Playlist

I'm going to go right out and say that Matt Corby is one of the most talented singer/songwriters I have ever listened to. Ever since I heard Matt's fourth EP, Into the Flame in 2014, I've been utterly captivated by his music. I even wrote a paper about one of his songs from that album, "Untitled" last semester. You might have heard his popular song, Brother on the radio, but odds are, you've never listened to any of his other songs.

Recently, I had the unbelievable pleasure of seeing Matt perform live in NYC at Terminal 5. I've seen a good amount of concerts over the past five years (Arcade Fire, Paul McCartney, Death Cab for Cutie, Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, Daughter, Kanye, Passion Pit, The Killers, Matt & Kim, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alt-J...the list goes on and on), but—as I've been raving to friends and family—I rarely see an artist perform so passionately and woo so many listeners in one show. Listening to Matt Corby sing was like being transported to another realm. His music is food for the soul.

In honor of Matt's successful concert and my first time seeing him live, I've compiled a playlist of Matt Corby's best songs (most of these are live because they're honestly better than the recordings), starting with my favorite and a fitting first piece for the beginning of the week.
