Sonny Rollins: Music is Meditation

I've been thinking about this a lot recently....

Facebook Fraud

Fake likes have caused us all sorts of expense and grief for Fierce And The Dead and my solo stuff. Worth a watch.

Team Rock

Top evening at TeamRock recording an interview for the Classic Rock Presents Prog show with Phil Wilding, talking about Lucid. They have a big wall where all the guests sign their name. I was next to Bill Bailey and Gavin Esler  ‪#‎rocknroll‬
Nice to see my mate Russ Russell on there as well

Lucid Week 1 - Thank you for your support!

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has purchased Lucid this week and the support of the team at Esoteric Recordings/Cherry Red. I’ve been absolutely blown away by the response. Amazon UK sold out day one and it was in the top 350 best sellers in all music on the site, which is just incredible. It’s also had some really good reviews, I never expected this to be honest, even Alarm Magazine made it an album of the week! 

If you like this album please tell your friends, it does make a massive difference. Sharing on Facebook and Twitter, blogs and forums really does help. 

Amazon UK have stock now (but running low):

(please consider writing a review!).

As do Burning Shed:

And its on iTunes:

other digital sites and various retail shops including HMV, Fopp and hopefully your local indie record shop (if you have one). I like record shops. 

Amongst many lovely and supportive reviews, this is one very detailed one by Oliver Arditi:

"one of the most fully engaged, artistically courageous recording artists currently active, and this album is his most ambitiously conceived, rigorously realised, and emotionally powerful release to date."

But there have been many others and they are all hugely appreciated. 

Thanks for your support , slightly dazed and confused now.

My new album LUCID is out today via Esoteric Recordings/Cherry Red Records. 

You can hear clips and find out more about the record on my website. Please hit share and tell your friends. You can order it here:

Itunes link is here:

Or at your local record store or Amazon etc…. 

If you want to review it on Amazon here, that would really help:

Also if you have a blog, tumblr, Facebook or Twitter or are a member of any forums and you can post about the album there it makes a massive difference, at this point it’s all down to the word of mouth, nothing else will help it to reach the audience in the same way. It’s down to that now. I’m feeling pretty optimistic! 

I’ll be doing a streaming event online at 7pm UK time today to celebrate, you can watch on your computer. Full info and international times are on my website.

This is the culmination of 3 years of work and your support is hugely appreciated. 

Thanks loads.

Matt Stevens
