Matt is a San Francisco-based singer/songwriter currently on a U.S. tour. (For local readers, he plays the Majestic Theatre in Madison on November 19th.) But he’s originally from the Boston area — as so many good people are. His sixth studio album, Some Mad Hope, was released in August 2007, featuring the single “Come On Get Higher.”
Although I’m a very recent convert to Nathanson’s music, I’d suggest that good entryways to his music would be his latest album or his first major-label release, 2003’s Beneath These Fireworks that included the brilliant single “Little Victories” (used in Season 7 of NBC’s Scrubs).

And I’ll be awful sometimes
Weakened to my knees
And I’ll learn to get by
On the little victories
–“Little Victories,” Beneath These Fireworks (2003)
