The music of Matt Boroff takes fans on a musical journey through wind-swept deserts to the edge of the abyss with the help of well-known musicians in his third studio album Grand Delusion. Recorded at 11AD studios, the album features producer and multi-instrumentalist Alain Johannes, former Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Pearl Jam drummer Jack Irons and vocalist Mark Lanegan.
With such names backing Boroff’s music, I think it it is safe to say that we can expect big things from the talented songwriter with his latest collection of songs. In addition, over the years, Matt has even shared stages with acts such as Nirvana, Kyuss, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Queens Of The Stone Age.
The album explores the idea of ‘where is love in the new world and does it still have the power to save us from ourselves?’, posing questions, but not necessarily answering them. This way, listeners are provoked into investigating the issue themselves.
In ‘What A Shame’, Boroff’s powerful baritone vocals mix perfectly with screaming guitars, providing progressive alternative sounds that challenge the rock genre. Boroff’s emotive lyrics address themes including nationalism, war-mongering and greed, just to name a few. Quite clearly, Grand Delusion is a rock album on a whole other level.
In 2010, Boroff began working again as a solo artist, releasing two solo LPs, one EP and now Grand Delusion set for release May 5th. Matt will also be performing a headline show in London at the Old Blue Last February 6th.
