Matt Boerum (born April 9, 1982) is an American singer-songwriter from the small town of Union Bridge in northern Maryland (population 1,057). Growing up as a shy, middle child of five in an isolated countryside of fields and open air, Matt had little to do but let his imagination run wild. Perhaps it's that isolation that led him to develop such a prominent voice in his debut album "Cold Hearted Disaster"--a voice that demands to be heard. With a natural flair for evoking feeling through his music, this 80's kid, raised on 50's, 60's and 70's soul and rock n roll, found his signature, passionate vocal style through a combination of his upbringing and the aggravation embellished by his heroes of the 90's alt rock scene. Matt's songs range from energy driven hard rock to deeply soulful tracks, where every note bleeds with captivating emotion.
"Feels Like Hell" Single Review!
"'Feels Like Hell,' the lead single off of Matt Boerum's forthcoming debut record Cold Hearted Disaster announces the arrival of a formidable voice on the D.C. rock scene. Boerum's plaintive wail steers a soaring melody over a heavy guitar riff, and the song's foreboding alt-rock groove channels the Black Keys. If "Feels Like Hell" is any indicator Cold Hearted Disaster should be an album to be reckoned with." -Joel Hoard Freelance Music Critic Joel's work has appeared in Rolling Stone magazine, RollingStone.com, The Reykjavik Grapevine, and The Michigan Daily.
