Last year’s winner of the prestigious International Songwriting Competition (ISC), Matt Epp, is thrilled to share the new single from his forthcoming album, Shadowlands, entitled “Good Lover.” Epp has been established as a true Canadian songwriting talent after being awarded a SOCAN No. 1 Song Award in Canada, and his tenth studio album is set for release on June 22nd. If you’d like to pre-order the album, check it out here.
Epp recorded the new album, Shadowlands, in Nashville, Tennessee at Dark Horse Recording with producer, Aaron Goldstein. With a stellar team of musicians from Jon Radford to ‘Champagne’ James Robertson, they have tied the sonic landscape and narrative of Shadowlands beautifully together.
Matt will be starting his full Canadian tour next week and will tour Europe this summer.

Hi, I’m Chelsea, and I’m a writer and photographer based in Toronto, Ontario! I love all things music and have been writing about and taking pictures of concerts for five years. Concert photography is my favourite type of photography because you can capture some of the most raw moments of artists in the place they feel the most comfortable, no matter how big or small the show. As a music lover, I listen to any and all types of music, but my favourite has got to be indie rock.
