Songwriter Adler to Show Off New Direction at Palace

“Singer-songwriter Matt Adler will return to Canyon with new EP “Stages” at an 8 p.m. Saturday show at Palace Coffee Co., 420 15th St.

On his ReverbNation page, Adler said the EP is “a concept album about all the stages of a failed relationship,” somewhat different than his previous music, which was more directly influenced by his Christian faith.

“I would say that though I’m a Christian artist and a Christian person, sometimes I write songs about life that may or may not directly reference God or Jesus,” Adler wrote.

The show is free.

You started writing songs at 14, did you have any musical background previous to that?

Though my parents were not particularly adept musicians, they surrounded me with music from a young age. I attribute my love of music to that.

I was the nerdy kid with the guitar on his back and a “Frank Gambale Jazz Guitar Improv Theory vol. 2″ book under my arm. But I never…Click here to read the entire article.
