Jubilation & Jealousy
Matt Sucich (pron: Sue-Sitch) hails from Astoria, Queens. He writes songs and sings them. He writes music and plays it with a guitar. Sometimes he sleeps. But most times he's working so these songs can be heard. You can find Matt performing his songs regularly in New York City... 'Nothing tells a story like a man's voice. A good singer can sing every experience into one song. A good songwriter knows how to put the lifts and lulls in all the right places. When someone can do both, well, then it's very simple: people listen. Matt Sucich's voice has the uncanny ability to relay love, loss and everything between. His songs make use of the simplest elements; yet deliver the complexity of emotions that dig deep to uproot our own personal experience. Every pocket of silence weighs heavy with intention. It speaks to the ability to experience both the absence of others as well as one's own anonymity in a city like New York. Most people will note the obvious singer/songwriter comparisons & that's OK. What people will also find, after they've dug beneath the surface observations we're all prone to make and depend on, is that Matt's voice is actually one of a kind. There's an undeniable pull, a distinct feeling of something familiar and close. An intimate suggestion, or a question you may never answer, but love to hear him ask. It comes down to this: everyone hears something special when Matt sings. Everyone hears a story. You don't have to listen hard either; the room is always silent.' -Devon C. Johnson, Producer.
