Matty Ride is taking a new relationship slow in his new beautiful single, ‘Lower Case Love’. The song has a 60’s feel with piano melodies and the saxophone’s bringing that old jazz flavor. He speaks of taking a relationship slowly and not rushing into anything. Something we all can relate to. The production may have a vintage sound but it’s crisp and lighthearted. This is definitely a timeless track. My favorite part? The jazzy solo filled with so much pizzazz. His vocals are captivating and the lyrics are well written and are seriously relatable and kind of something we all should learn patience.
He speaks on the track, “Hollywood sells us on instant romance, but in reality, love is a slow burn. I wrote this song as a tongue in cheek way to say, take it seriously, but seriously… take your time. Because the quicker you get it, the cheaper it is. And the cheaper it is, the sooner we move on to something else. But love is a four-letter word spelled T-I-M-E, and time is the currency of love. Where you invest your time, there your heart is also. So, for all those feeling the pressure of Valentine’s Day, I say, ‘Only time will tell if it’s love with a capital ‘L’, but for now the lower case will do.’”
The in-studio music video is as beautiful as the song. It features a hard-working live band and beautiful sun rays shining in the widow.
Originally hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Matty Ride grew up in the very stomping grounds and hometown of Bing Crosby. It’s there that his love for the great singers of the American Songbook such as Nat King Cole, Sinatra and of course Bing Crosby, took hold. Now based in Nashville, Matty Ride recaptures the spirit of the American Songbook through his original ‘Vintage pop’ compositions. His clever rhymes, tongue in cheek topics, and witty lyrics showcase an urbane sense of style and playfulness. Ask Matty Ride to describe his music and he’ll tell you with a laugh, “I’m just making the type of music your grandparents made your parents to.”
