PITTSBURGH, PA, USA, April 13, 2019 -- "Matt has a knack for embracing all of the cherished parts of Americana that made country special in the first place." - Gashouse Radio

"Matt continues in the spirit of well polished, radio ready, country singles that we have become accustomed to from this fast rising talent" - Middle Tennesse Music
The critics have spoken loud and clear...Matt Westin is leading the charge of new country artists who not only embrace the traditions of yesteryear, but push it forward, infusing rock elements, and topping them off with soulful, emotive vocals. Matt was first introduced to the country music world in 2018, with the release of his debut album, "Legacy." Recorded at Tonic Studios, in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA, the album stormed country airplay charts around the globe. Westin landed on the Roots Music Report, IndieWorld Country Report, New Music Weekly, AirplayToday, Euro Top 200 Indie chart, and others, while walking away with an International Music and Entertainment Association Award for Best Country Male. He topped off the year with an appearance in Billboard Magazine, as an Emerging Artist.
Now, Matt Westin returns with his first new single since the release of his debut album. "Stomp On" (MTS Records) was written by Mitch Townley and Andrew Scott Wills. Industry veteran Bryan Cole, who produced "Legacy," returns to produce this track.
"This is kick-you-in-the-can country, if I've ever heard it before," says Michael Stover of MTS. "I believe this song will elevate Matt's radio presence even more, building on the success of his debut album, and the three previous single releases. It's a fun, hanging out with your friends, good time song..it's undeniable!"
