Annie (Many Moons Ago)
“This is such a classy song and so honest, I feel that Matt has lived through this scenario in order to create such poignant, heartfelt lyrics.
It is perfectly constructed and with every four bars , he cleverly reveals more sub plots and twists to the story.
Credit to Matt for sticking to a sound that oozes his own country background and County Down roots. In addition to his song-writing skills on this track, he also plays guitars, drums and piano whilst singing all the harmonies!
Special mention must also go to Niamh Dunne on fiddle, Sean Og Graham on accordion and Jon Thorne on double bass.”
