  It’s always great to discover fresh talent and Matt has clearly a great deal to offer the CCM scene.  A high, tender voice that strokes and caresses evocative melodies and lyrics that shine with devotional passion, Matt has clearly worked hard on his music.  This six song EP recorded on a tiny budget is an exemplary example of what can be achieved when you have the vocal talents and the quality of songs that Matt Crane and Roy Bowen have on offer here.  The narrative “Beautiful For Her King” and the wistful title track are excellent.  When the tempo picks up, like on “Just Like An Angel”, there are a few problems in the production.  But on the ballads the effect is masterly.  Welcome to the CCM scene Matt.
