World-weary, whiskey-soaked, unbearably gorgeous and timeless. These are a few things that have been said about Matt Hebert and his numerous projects over the span of his career. Beginning with his Alt-Country act, Ware River Club and later with the revolving outfit of Haunt, Matt Hebert has released seven full-length albums, including two under his own name. Hebert has shared the stage with many of his heroes, including Emmylou Harris, Bob Mould, The Jayhawks, Dave Alvin, Ellis Paul, Daniel Johnston, Richard Buckner, Freedy Johnston, Tift Merritt, and Anders Parker, to name a few. Hebert’s songs have crossed over in other mediums, with multiple placements including Drafthouse Films’ “Cheap Thrills” and the TV show “How I Met Your Mother”. Hebert wrote the musical score for “I’m Not Les: A Transgender Story”, a PBS documentary released in 2012 by Daniel Kopec. Matt Hebert’s third solo release, “Where The Heart Beats Slow” takes root from his move to Santa Fe in 2016. Relocating to an art-filled town filled with adobe homes on tiny, crooked streets and awe-inspiring sunsets nestled in between mountains offered a chance to relax, reset and rebuild life’s path; the seven songs on “Where the Heart Beats Slow” are the result. The title track sings “Honey come up to the peak and lay your heart in front of me/ Let’s go, where the heart beats slow”, illustrating a renewed outlook on relationships. The album is evocative of light and breezy summer days accompanied by cool, desert nights. The introspective and emotional challenging lyrics lend to an unassuming dichotomy to the record’s 70’s AM radio influenced sound, peppered with Moogs and angular guitars. Hebert brought longtime producer and collaborator, Danny Bernini to record vocals and acoustic guitar in Hebert's home studio in Santa Fe. Bernini followed up in Western Massachusetts, overdubbing at Spirithouse Studios with an inspired group of creative players. Caleb and Jacob Rozazzo (Lux Deluxe) on Guitar and Bass, Paul McNamara on Synths, Miranda Brown (The New Pornographers) on Harmonies, and Bernini, himself, on Drums. Back in Austin, TX since September, Hebert has formed an incredible line-up consisting of David Goodrich (Chris Smither, Peter Mulvey, Jeffery Foucault, William Harries Graham) on Lead Guitar, Seth Sherman (Tinnerose, Seth Sherman) on Guitar/Vocals, Joel Calvin on Drums and Greg Barclay on Bass/ Vocals (Oh No Oh My and Texas Never Whispers). The band has been playing local shows in Austin, including successful shows for SXSW this past March and are preparing for regional, Western Mass, and Northeast release shows this upcoming mid-summer.
