We first introduced Matt Westin in Episode 37. We knew then that we absolutely wanted him to return to our Free Range Texan Podcast. When we have a guest like Matt … who demonstrates style, good looks, and talent … many times we are just letting enough water go under the bridge so that we can update our audience on a continually growing career.
Another thing that we know about Matt Westin … he is always a great interview. I always have a goal to relax an artist early in an interview so that they talk comfortably about their personal thoughts, ranging from their family, their careers, or the back story on a great piece of music. The word I would use for Matt Westin is genuine. I have never once felt that he was putting on airs. Instead, what you see is what you get.
Matt is starring in a full-length motion picture, “116 McDougal”, where he plays the character of Johnny Cash. Production was slowed down by COVID last year, but we understand that at least two of the musical pieces for the movie are Matt Westin releases, and production is now ramping up. We wanted to include one of Matt’s recently released videos here in the blog. “Hey Bro” is just another one of several that is achieving noteworthy success over seas and here in north America alike.
If you’re getting the sense that I like Matt Westin as a recording artist and/or a person that I always look forward to visiting with, you’d be right. Free Range Texan Podcast Episode 56 features a song called, “Thin Blue Line”, and the moment we heard it, I knew it was time to bring Matt Westin back to the Free Range Texan. I’m glad he was available. We are proud of him as a featured guest and as a friend.
