Merciful 66 named Folk Rising's album of the year 2008

We're proud to announce that Mat d. was awarded Folk Rising's Album of the Year 2008 for his solo CD "Merciful 66" Mat was fortunate enough to have earned this award in 2007 for the album "Gasoline Rattle" Two years in a row ain't bad! Much appreciation to Gary at Folk Rising for his enthusiasm and support of Americana and Folk music. THANK YOU FOLK RISING! Here's what they had to say - Folk Rising™ Music Productions, LLC (Folk Rising)'s 2008 Folk Album of the year is awarded to Mat D for his Merciful 66 album. Gary Kappenman, A&R for Folk Rising, stated "as I sit here listening to Mat’s Merciful 66 album for about the 20th time, I’m considering that reviewers of Mat’s first solo album, Gasoline Rattle, reminded them of a young Steve Earle. While I enjoy listening to Steve Earle’s work, I believe Mat’s new album goes significantly beyond Steve Earle’s work in both the striking imagery of his lyrics and the heartfelt soulfulness he brings to his vocals. If you like Steve Earle’s work, you’ll love Mat’s new Merciful 66 album!”
