"Absolutely brilliant! This song has already made it to the top of my playlist and I expect it to stay there for a while".
"Joe Matzzie’s unique sound revolves around his gentle yet raspy vocals and melodic, acoustic guitar riffs. His songs have a folk foundation, but Matzzie enjoys dabbling in genres across the board. Defined, acoustic guitar-driven folk songs like 'California Dreamin on Ya' and the harmony filled 'It’s All True' exemplify Matzzie’s core sound and display his gifted songwriting ability".

"This Box Makes Noise has a sound and melody that takes the listener right into the heart of the American dream, the challenge of survival, and the relationships we all encounter.

"There’s a captivating energy to Joe Matzzie’s vocal. You can tell right away that he believes every lyric that he sings. He reminds me of a Woody Guthrie style of folk music. It’s not just humming a tune with some poetic lyrics; it’s a performance. It’s a story that has to move the audience to action, to conviction, to movement. This sentiment comes through clearly with Matzzie’s convincing, old fashioned energy. Fans of traditional folk and Americana music are going to find a lot to love about this song and the traditions that it emulates."
