Every now and then I come across new music that fills my heart with pure happiness; Soft Times, by Matt Duncan, is definitely at the top of my “happy heart” list right now. Matt Duncan is a singer-songwriter from the beautiful (I may be biased..) city of Lexington, KY. As a music lover and Lexington resident, this album feels a little bit like a hidden gem tucked in the back pocket of the local music scene, just waiting to be shared with the world. I first heard Matt play one night on a whim when some friends asked Nate and I to hang out at Cosmic Charlie’s - a local music venue where another good friend of ours runs the sound. We had such a good time that night and I knew instantly that the songs on this album would become key to my summer playlist! It has a smooth retro Indie/Pop vibe that is just so easy to love .. and dance to! Just have a listen and try to tell me that you’re not dancing around your living room singing about moving to the Keys! If you’re ever in the area you’ll definitely want to make it out to see Matt and his band - they’re great live and so entertaining!
