Artist of the Week: Matt Wertz

Lately, I've gained an extreme fondness for acoustic singer-songwriters. So fond, in fact, that I'm trying (rather unsuccessfully) to teach myself guitar.

With that said, this brings me to this week's artist of the week installment — Matt Wertz. His laid-back music and moving lyrics have left an impact on me so I wanted to share his music with you. I'm hoping to set up an interview with him soon, so be sure to stay tuned for more details!

You can listen to an acoustic version of "5:19" below.

Watch Matt perform one of my favorite songs, "Everything's Right" for a local radio station below.

If you like what you've heard, be sure to visit Matt's MySpace page and catch a show soon, as he's currently on tour!

I've liked Matt Wertz since the fall of 2003 when my friend from college introduced me to a live acoustic version of "Counting to 100."

I saw him in concert with Mat Kearney a few years back. They played a song together that night. I originally came for Kearney but ended up enjoying Wertz too.
