The Matt O’Ree Band Known For Their High Energy Live Performances, Set to Release New Album, "Hand In Glove"

Everyone now and then an album comes across your desk and you just know it's something special.  This is one of those times.  New Jersey's best kept secret is about to make some noise around the globe. Over the past few years, The Matt O'Ree Band has done what most area bands do. They've played their shows, developed their sound, released their records and very quietly built a local fan base in the process.  What makes this band different from all the others is that their local fan base includes Bruce Springsteen, David Bryan and John Popper (all of whom have performed on the band's last album several years ago) which broke the band globally.  Bruce Springsteen contributed vocals and lead guitar on O'Ree's song "Black Boots" and David Bryan from Bon Jovi co-wrote and produced the album's second single and played on numerous other songs on the record.

Listen Now 'Better as I Go'

The band is currently touring to promote their new album, Hand in Glove, released on November 3, 2022. This latest album shows the influence of each of the band members, featuring more songs written by the band as a whole and including more songs where Eryn sings lead vocals, as evidenced by the first two singles, Whole Lotta Nothin’ and Better as I Go. What hasn’t changed is that the songs are true blues rock n’ roll featuring Matt’s ripping guitar and gritty vocals, Eryn’s powerful wail and impressive range, both technically and stylistically, the pair’s off-the-charts vocal chemistry, Layonne Holmes’ soulful back-up vocals, Lex Lehman’s smooth bass tones, Matt Wade’s colorful keys and THE John Hummel’s behind-the-beat Bonhamesque drums.  

Each of the band members brings their special brand of talent spun from influences such as Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Bad Company, Deep Purple, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, ZZ Top, and Rush, to name a few. If you are a fan of Blues, Rock, Classic Rock or Roots music, I highly encourage you to check out The Matt O'Ree Band.  The band members are outstanding vocalists, musicians and performers.  This is one of the best albums I've received this year and I anticipate big things for Matt O'Ree and his fantastic in 2023.
