Press release from: Mind\'s Ear Music - Matthew Clay

Producer/songwriter Doug Dixon of Mind’s Ear Music and producer/artist Matthew Clay are putting final mixing touches on the new Matthew Clay project “Epic Twist”. The 9 song modern pop opera is scheduled for release this summer. Penned by Clay, his wife Tara, and Dixon, it features a unique mix of musical styles that collectively tell the tale of a star struck boy trying to make a name for himself amid the pitfalls of fame. Ranging from modern rock to Broadway, spirituals, and pop, “Epic Twist” weaves a diverse tale taking the listener on a sonic adventure they won't soon forget. Banjos, brass sections, juice harps, melodicas, virtual synthesizers, and operatic singers, share the sonic palette with electric guitar, bass, drums, and piano. Dixon elaborates “This project has been creatively fulfilling, challenging and buckets of fun. Once we began writing the story, the details and arrangements began filling in themselves, often with new and unusual results.”

Clay was recently awarded a $3900 Iowa Arts Council grant to assist with duplication and promotion. The CD will be packaged with a mini comic book that mirrors the story arc. A video was shot earlier this spring for “Special Purpose”, the first cut on the album slated to be released as a single.
