Matt Farley is one of a kind. As of this recording he has written and published 18,300 songs. He is the poster child for anti-perfectionism. I spent some time with him in the basement where he writes and records while I was home with my family in Massachusetts and we talked about his mindset, his routines and his secret dreams. I had so much fun recording this.
