I Was So Fond Of You
I Was So Fond Of You


I Was So Fond of You is Matt's second record, and like his debut, the Western Canadian Music Awards nominated 'Outside The Lights of Town', Patershuk tapped Juno award winning producer Steve Dawson to guide it to completion at his Henhouse studio in Nashville. The result is one of the most honest Canadian country albums to ever see the light of day. Matt Patershuk's unaffected singing belongs to a different time and reflects a reserve and unspoken toughness that is rarely heard today. The songs on 'I Was So Fond of You' are peppered with the kind of humanity that you can hear in Willie Nelson's best work and reflect a subdued irony that wouldn't be out of place in a John Prine tune. " It's timeless country music, delightfully it'll turn off modern country 'bro' fans - it's too good for them anyway, too rich, too sophisticated for their bland palates." - FATEA "There are echoes of so many other people in Matt Patershuk's music and yet he doesn't actually sound like anyone else! That in itself puts him in a very good position, with his tremendous songwriting abilities, deep and sometimes raw but manipulative vocal style and the perfect arrangements, added to which is the fact that his songs are at least within hailing distance of the mainstream but with a complete lack of saccharine!" AMERICANROOTSUK.COM "We've written about several acts who might be considered a new wave of young country bucks (Sturgill Simpson, Cale Tyson, Daniel Romano, Barna Howard etc.). They sidestep the current Nashville trends such as Bro' Country and EDM and instead look back to classic country music, not the hillbilly type but the golden years of the fifties and sixties, their heroes George Jones, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, Glen Campbell and John Hartford, artists who were mavericks but still able to turn in a hit song. Well it's time to add Canadian Matt Patershuk to this list." BLABBERNSMOKE
