Matt Sucich

Queens songwriter on the rise: Matt Sucich plays Joe's Pub on 08.21

Intriguingly combining splendor and ruggedness, defeat and possibility, Queens-born singer/songwriter Matt Sucich’s latest single “Lay Low” (streaming below) is delightfully poignant. It’s the ever kindred story of someone trying to do good and offer love to another but constantly getting beaten down, for reasons even a god wouldn’t know. Gloom isn’t Sucich’s game, though, as his spectral voice and whimsical background production illuminate “Lay Low” with rays of hope and even bashful merriment. Ultimately, the burgeoning musician is just a guy expressing himself, the hurt and the joy. After last night's show at the Mercury Lounge Matt is scheduled to perform at Joe's Pub on August 21. – Zach Weg
