Mountain Eyes...

Armed with only an acoustic guitar and a four-track recorder, Canadian indie-folk songwriter Matt Paxton returns with a new EP titled Mountain Eyes set for release September 23rd, 2014. Self-recorded in his Vancouver, BC home and a little in his hometown of Hamilton, ON, Mountain Eyes is his most stripped back collection of recordings yet. Paxton has returned to his roots, with an EP that highlights the strengths of the artist at work

Paxton follows his instinct and does not tailor his music to fit. He believes an artist should walk his or her own path, and believes people will respond and respect that way of writing and recording music.

Paxton says of the EP “I made Mountain Eyes here in Vancouver by myself with a 4-track and a microphone, sending the tracks across country to my friend Scott Orr in Hamilton who added minimal acoustic guitar, banjo, and piano parts. I had all these songs saved up to record a studio album that I am currently working on in Vancouver and Toronto with friend/producer Aaron Goldstein (Bry Webb and The Providers, Daniel Romano and The Trilliums Band). However, since moving to Vancouver in February of 2014, I have written a lot more songs for the studio album and thought to save the songs you hear on Mountain Eyes for a separate release, getting back to the essence of what it is I do as a songwriter. I made it with what I have at my disposal. These songs still feel brand new to me, freshly picked. The studio full-length album I am working on with Goldstein has no set release date, as we are taking our time choosing the songs carefully, and recording whenever we have time on our side.”
