Rolling Stone hailed Szlachetka as one of the 10 New Artists You Need to Know, describing his forthcoming album as “a soundtrack for both the highway and the heartland…a collection of road-dog roots-rockers and Americana ballads inspired by the people (and places) he’s left behind in the rearview mirror.”

Now based in Nashville, Szlachetka continues to tour nationally with a schedule that’s seen him open for Brandy Clark, the Byrds’ Chris Hillman, the Heartbreakers’ Mike Campbell, Brandi Carlile and more.

Rolling Stone: “Until That Echo” 10 Best Country and Americana Songs of the Week
“Built around a chromatic guitar riff that spirals downward into darkness, “Until That Echo” is a roots- rocker for late-night drives and haunted hearts. Frontman Matt Szlachetka co-wrote the song with Scott Underwood, Train’s drummer of 20 years, resulting in a track that mixes deep-seated grooves with guitar heroics.”

American Songwriter: “Until That Echo” Video Feature
“Heart Of My Hometown, Szlachetka’s sophomore release, showcases his solid guitar skills, sweet emotive vocals and concise writing. The New England native, who now calls Nashville home, creates muscular, melodic and joyous roots-rock that holds its own in your music playlist, nestled comfortably between Bruce Springsteen, Keith Urban, Jason Isbell and Bob Seger, never approaching the level of cover band mimicry.”

No Depression: NoDepressionAlbumReview
“The spare beauty of these songs, Szlachetka’s crystal vision for seeing the beauty in front of us and the beauty behind us, as well as the bright spaces he creates with his singular guitar rhythms and riffs turn Heart of My Hometown into an album that should accompany any road trip or any night in front of the fire at home.”

Wide Open Country: “Until That Echo” Video Feature
“Until That Echo” is a soul-searching rocker that recalls Damn the Torpedoes-era Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Filled with crunchy guitars and a pulsing beat, the song sounds like a moonlit drive to somewhere forbidden.”
