Matthew Good: A Momentary Truth

By Kerry Doole

Matthew Good -  A Momentary Truth  (Warner Music Canada): The popular veteran rock songsmith from Vancouver released a new album, Moving Walls, on Friday.

Moving Walls was entirely written by Good and cut with long-time collaborator, producer/engineer Warne Livesey. Of the album, Good says in a press release that "the title Moving Walls seemed symbolic given what was going on in my life. It’s the idea of being in situations where things just keep moving. Even something as seemingly permanent as a wall can be disassembled.”

Earlier singles Sicily and Selling You My Heart were well-received, with a similar response expected to the just-released A Momentary Truth. Driven by crisp jangly guitars, this is a mid-tempo tune featuring Good’s distinctive gruff and angst-tinged vocals and vivid imagery.


A prolific artist, Good has released albums under his name and as The Matthew Good Band., and is approaching the 30-year milestone as a musician. He has won four Juno Awards.

Matthew Good and his band of superb players will soon begin a 32-date headlining tour. The run of dates begins on March 4th in Pictou, NS, including stops in Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver. Tickets and VIP packages for the tour are available here now.
