Enjoy, share, and play at your office with the volume up! We promise it’ll put everyone in a good mood. Download this song and Matt’s entire album, “The Build” at The Family Records store.

Here’s your end-of-the-week treat… Matt Singer’s acoustic version of his song “Perfect Lawns”. Matt took advantage of the nice weather (aka before it started raining for days here in NYC) and played this pretty song just for you.
Download this song or his entire album, The Build, on the Family Records store.
Haven’t seen Matt Singer live? Or can’t wait to see him again? You can see him in a show of a slightly different kind at St. Ann’s Warehouse at the end of this month. He’s is teaming up with puppeteer Eric Wright to perform their new puppetry musical about the human experience of food politics, What Are You Eating, at the Puppet Lab at St. Ann’s Warehouse. Mr. Wright’s performance credits include Madama Butterfly (Metropolitan Opera) and Powerhouse (NYC Fringe Festival) and he is a co-founder of The Puppet Kitchen, whose clients include The Public Theater (Hamlet) and FAO Schwartz / Folkmanis Puppets.
PS: You’ll get a new video from Matt each Friday, leading up to the release of his next single from “The Build”. Score!
He also talked with Ardent about which audiobook he’s listening to on the road (hint: it’s a music icon) and good ol’ rock and roll.
Also, if you’re an East Coast fan, we’ll be announcing some co-headlining show dates soon, with a mystery band. Hint #2: They’re a “logical” choice! For now, here are Casey’s remaining shows this month: May tour.

Under the Radar magazine’s online home is premiering the brand new live video for Casey Shea’s “It Is What It Is,” featuring Rosi Golan on background vocals. Read the lovely blurb and watch the video here. The song is from Casey’s latest album, In Your Head.
And now, an excellent video of Wakey!Wakey! performing “War Sweater” live at Eureka in Zwolle. Thanks to our friend Brian Esselbrugge for such great footage, and Tim and Marlous of the Family Team, Netherlands branch, for sending along!
“War Sweater” has a special place in all of our hearts, as it was the first W!W! song to be used on One Tree Hill (season 6 finale, check it out here). Casey Shea’s “Roll Your Windows Down” also appeared in the same episode, so OTH has really become a part of the Family. The show is now in its final (9th!) season and coming to a close, but we’re so happy to be able to say we were a part of it!
Our dear friend Jose is in a band called Sad and French, and he is also a phenomenal graphic designer under the moniker ILoveMisery with his buddy Edwin. They have designed many a poster, tote and shirt for Family Records, like this, this, this, this, and more. This is Sad and French performing their song “Shorter Days, Longer Nights”.
