About:

Matt Pryor, the revered frontman for Get–Up Kids and New Amsterdams, will be releasing his debut solo album, entitled Confidence Man, (Vagrant) July 29th. The 15–track disc was truly a solo effort – Pryor wrote, played, sang, recorded and produced the album from his home studio in Lawrence, Kansas.

Confidence Man is an intimate collection of folk–tinged acoustic songs that strip Pryor??s skillful songwriting down to its bare, emotive minimum. The storylines are less autobiographical and more observant, with a sophisticated twist (especially on the title track and ??Loralai?).

??I??ve always wanted to do something that was quieter and acoustic and could be played by one person,? says Pryor. ??I just want to have my little folk moment.?
