Here & Gone
Michael Matasci has synthesized the worlds of pop, rock, folk, and soundtrack. In collaboration with producer, arranger, and vocalist, Don Avalon, these sounds elicit heartache, longing, and hope. Don's passionate vocals realize the vitality of classic rock, with echos of Gregg Allman. Acoustic instrumentals can be found on many tracks, including mandolin and harmonica. Solid arrangements bring out simple, yet engaging melodies, that sound like the soundtrack to your favorite film. Check out the samba-inspired 'Green Eyes,'- a fun diversion through the land of Jobim. Michael continues to create songs from musical sources that are far and wide, taking in sounds from Miles Davis, Bach, and the Beatles. Will make a donation to Amnesty International with proceeds from the sale, in order to help this wonderful organization that helps so many people throughout the world.
