In my last Music To Work By post I introduced you to Shad. In this segment of Music To Work By I want to feature another of my favorite artists to work by, Matt Costa. Matt has released his last three albums through Jack Johnson’s label Brushfire Records.
Matt Costa is known for his organic sound driven mainly by guitars and percussion. His unique vocals add an almost raw quality to his music. As if he created all his songs sitting on his back porch hanging out with some friends.
Matt Costa has released three albums and two EPs.
Matt Costa EP (2003)
The Elasmosaurus EP (2004)
Songs We Sing (2005)
Unfamiliar Faces (2008)
Mobile Chateau (2010)
Some of my favorite Matt Costa songs to work by are “Cold December” and “Sunshine” from his “Songs We Sing” album. From his “Unfamiliar Faces” album I really like “Lilacs”, “Emergency Call”, “Vienna”, “Never Looking Back”, and “Mr. Pitiful.” If you haven’t heard Matt Costa before take a moment and watch the video for “Mr. Pitiful” below.
So next time you’re looking for something to listen to while you work, check out Matt Costa. What do you listen to while you work?
