Matt Ryan Jacobs is a singer songwriter from Kitchener Waterloo Ontario. Incorporating everything he loves into his sound; From Delta Blues to alternative rock, to singer songwriters like Bob Dylan and Tom Petty. He’s not comparing himself to any of these people, but you can hear their influence. This has personally been his favourite music he’s ever made. Mostly because it all came so naturally.
“”Sun Goes Down” started out as more a blues song, but once the lyrics started to come together, I slowed it down and it ended up a little more on the soul side. Lyrically it’s kind of a story about where I was heading or loosely based on people I know or have known. It’s a little bit about addiction, and not wanting to let go of your youth; when drinking and partying just slowly turns into your life; and people and things start passing you by. You feel like you’re “living” but, you’re stuck in one place. ” – Matthew Ryan Jacobs
