I'm officially in love with all the songs by Matt Hires I've heard so far. I first heard the singer/songwriter on a TV show best left unmentioned because it's trashy and I shouldn't watch it, but at least one good thing came out of it. Now the beautiful boy with the equally beautiful voice is everywhere! To me he sounds a little like Mumford and Sons, Dave Matthews (yum!), and Adam Duritz, but don't make the Counting Crows comparison – he's tired of hearing it! If you love poetic turns of phrase and ballads with meaning, though, stick these songs by Matt Hires on your playlist. I promise you won't be sorry!
1. Honey, Let Me Sing You a Song

This is one of my favorite songs by Matt Hires, and not just because it's the first one I've ever heard. It's a lovely little love song with a beat that saves it from being so sappy. The repetition, rather than being lazy, lends a really fun vibe to the rhythm. I adore this song so much that I'm planning to dedicate it to Heather at our wedding this fall!
