Kearney Delivers Like UPS
Posted July 17, 2007
By art10,


I first heard Kearney when the Weekend 22 did a feature on him back in 2004, or least I think it was 2004. The show was doing a new artist spotlight on the guy, and my ears were wide open. There's almost nothing better nowadays than a fusion of genres, and Mat Kearney mastered the fusion with his first album. However, like most fusions, it didn't catch on.

Fast forward to 2006, and Kearney signed to the same label as John Mayer, Kearney had gone mainstream. He released a semi-new album, and the public ate it up, and is still savoring the flavor that is "Undeniable" after his Christian fans had been savoring it for two years.

Mat's fusion with his music really creates some real gems, i.e. "Undeniable", "Bullet". But don't forget his catchy, emotional tunes, i.e. "Crashing Down", "Nothing Left To Lose".

However, his mainstreamness does present a problem, while there is nothing wrong with it, he has to learn the lesson not to tour with people like Kelly Clarkson. Although the mistake came back to bite him, he needs to learn not to majorly associate with such sad saps.

Overall, I've like Kearney for the past two years, and I'm just happy he's getting some attention, even if it is from mainstream. Hopefully, he can build on his success, and show the fools on the top 10 charts how real music is made.
