Matt Van Winkle Los Angeles, California

Songwriter and bandleader Matt Van Winkle writes songs that are portable vistas - small & grandiose, like a postcard thumb- tacked to the wall above a bed. Repeated listens are rewarded with new imaginative connections. A former NYC anti-folk hero-turned CA dreamer, he continues to find the songs that so far have been missing. ... more

Track Name: Come Up and Dance
Come up and dance if you feel worse than you wanna
Come up and dance if you don't feel like you like
Dance in New York and California
Dance in Pennsylvania tonight

If you can't figure out how love is handled
If you can't handle it when love runs out
Dance in a barn in a ring of candles
Dance on the bar 'til the hotel kicks you out

I don't wanna know which car is his
I don't wanna know what state you're from
Just wanna see you shakin' that cute little bum
I don't wanna know if what I'm finding out is true.
Track Name: Sit and Cry
I've done everything I can to tell you how I feel
You just don't look at me the same way
So I'm through with all those thoughts I've had of you and I
Running through a field in the sunshine in the month of May

Sit and cry for a while, I don't mind if I do
But call the doctor if I can't smile before the month of June

Go to space and climb Mt. Everest are two things I'll never do
Along with, so it seems, receive one kindly word from you.
If you just want to say No, then I guess you're not too late
But I gotta find another habit than to wait and wait and wait
