Singer-songwriter Matt Durfee is certainly no stranger to Nippertown music fans. He first made a name for himself as half of the acoustic duo Palatypus, his musical partnership with M.R. Poulopoulos, and more recently he’s been fronting the Rattling Baddlies, the acoustic trio that also features percussionist Tommy Krebs and bassist August Sagehorn, the rhythm section of Alta Mira.
So, given his Local 518 musical history, it’s somewhat surprising that it’s only now that Durfee has come around to releasing his solo debut, Little World. Not that the nine-song disc disc was an easy birth; he’s been working on it for two and a half years, finally closing out the deal with a successful Kickstarter campaign that wrapped up in September.
Perfectionist? Maybe. But that’s not a bad thing if the results are as sparkling as Little World.
