What is it about New Jersey that is responsible for producing so many great singer-songwriters?
Is it the water?
Is it the air?
Or is it the culture?
Whatever it is, over the past few decades it has produced a long line of great performers, including:
- Frankie Valli;
- Frank Sinatra;
- Paul Simon;
- The Jonas Brothers;
- Bon Jovi; and
- Bruce Springsteen.
Now New Jersey can be proud to add to this list another inspiring singer-songwriter with the passion, dedication and talent to become another one of the greats — Matt Colligan!
Matt was recently featured on two shows on Alive with Clive, and gave an impressive performance of 8 of his songs!
Drawing upon his experience with Italian music industry mogul, Umberto Labozzetta and Lab Promotion during visits to Italy, Matt combines thoughtful poetic lyrics and a smooth voice with musical influences from a wide range of famous bands and performers such as U2, Peter Gabriel, Bad English, Jason Mraz and Bon Jovi, to produce a sound that all who get to experience his music enjoy.
During Matt’s 1st Show on Alive with Clive, he performed these four songs:
1. “All the While,” about finding simple solutions to seemingly complex problems;
2. “Music Box,” about living with the burden of having committed an act of infidelity;
3. “You Are Home,” a song Matt wrote for his wedding; and
4. “Torn Apart,” about not letting your internal struggles affect your life.
And during his 2nd Show, he performed these four songs:
1. “Your Way,” a song to encourage people to leave relationships that aren’t working;
2. “Battle Scars,” about a person who is tormented by voices inside their head;
3. “Just Drive,” a song that emerged from Matt’s commitment to being a singer-songwriter; and
4. “In the Distance,” about staying committed to goals and dreams.
