Free Spencer Park Music Sampler Album

I’ve been following Matt Stevens’ music career for a few years, and have bought some CDs and downloads, and got others for free, too. He’s released this free sampler of a variety of music he’s involved in, and it is a great introduction to his style of acoustic guitar instrumental driven music – though on some of his work (The Fierce & The Dead) there are some lovely electric guitar tones too.
Matt is also something of an evangelist on the use of social media to promote, perform and sell music. If you like this free sampler you can go to his website here to find out more, and go to his bandcamp page here to buy downloads and CDs.

By listening to Matt I’ve not only discovered a whole lot more interesting music from Matt and his friends, but I’ve also been thinking about my own acoustic guitar playing, and where I’m going with it.
