After enduring such a potentially soul-crushing year as the emotional pain was at an all-time breaking point due to so many sudden tragedies, Matt Marlow decided to do something about it and fearlessly ventured into making music that conclusively helped his heart see the ‘Light‘.
Matt Marlow is an Athens, Georgia-based indie-pop solo artist and dawg dad who sings with that gritty determination that only comes when you want it enough.
”It’s crazy what can happen when you believe in yourself. That’s what this kid is all about. From a shitty 2020 being alone due to Covid, losing both grandpas, his dog, and the end of a relationship, I was lost and depressed, to say the least.” ~ Matt Marlow
Matt Marlow shines a bright light on what happened in the past and how he had to fight so hard to dig himself out of a quick-sand hole so deep, that it almost took him under forever. After losing so many close ones – he can now smile and be happy again – as he has found that creative outlet that was missing his whole life.
‘Light‘ from the Athens, Georgia-based indie-pop solo artist and massive Braves baseball fan Matt Marlow, is such a beaming revelation that only brings joy to all those who are lucky enough to witness this excellent track. It’s incredible to think that this is a relative newcomer who is only finding his feet in this world, as he brings a smile to many faces who have been through so much hardship lately. This is an absolute gem that is sung with so much true grace and love, that is unquestionably one of the best pop releases so far in 2021.
