Chasing Happy by G Matthews.
Los Angeles-based indie alt-pop-rock singer G Matthews has released her newest CD called Chasing Happy, which is now available for download on iTunes and for streaming on Spotify.
Produced by Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Social Distortion, Alkaline Trio), Chasing Happy showcases G Matthews’ powerful and emotive songwriting, demonstrating the incredible journey she has taken to get where she is today. The album skillfully combines pop-punk guitar riffs with captivating melodies reminiscent of bands like Paramore and Echosmith. The record stands out with songs like, “Backtrack” and the title track, “Chasing Happy,” a riveting and evocative gem that reveals Matthews’ quest to find joy. “Judge Me Not” is a responsive song about bullying where Matthews paves a path of self-love and assurance. With a fun, quick beat, the song evolves into a compelling and dynamic anthem about being true to you. While touching on relatable topics like failing relationships and finding yourself, Matthews also gets heavy with songs about self-harm and sexual assault. Opening with a light and harmonious guitar, “Unsacred” is a courageous and sincere narrative documenting Matthews’ own experience with rape and sexual assault. G Matthews isn’t afraid to get vulnerable and reveal insecurities, allowing this album to be a refreshing break from current cookie-cutter pop music.
