Matt Stillwell has been kicking around on his own for a few years. He’s been on various labels and has self-released music.
Now he’s on Average Joe’s, Colt Ford’s record label, and seems ready for something bigger. Check out Matt’s latest single release and see what you think.
Ignition – Matt Stillwell
For the most part Average Joe’s has been under the radar, but they have really been coming on strong. They are known for their founder, Colt Ford, but now they are starting to become one of the major players in the country world and beyond.
Matt Stillwell has signed on with the label and things appear to be heading for the big time.
Ignition has the sounds of a big country hit. The song is about realizing where you are in life and knowing that it’s not the end. There are new beginnings all the time in life. Sometimes you have to let go of the past and look forward to what will happen in the future. You can’t control what has already happened. The only thing you can control is what you’ll do in the future.
I really like this song. The topic is great. It’s a winning topic, but the challenge for songwriters and singers is to find the right way to express the topic in a song that reaches people. I think Matt and his team did just that with Ignition. It sounds like a hit. It has a little rock edge, but is definitely country music at the core. It’s about life and more specifically about the life of good hard-working folks out there.
People will connect with this song. It looks like it’s already on the charts and climbing. I think it will continue to climb and will become a big hit for Matt and the entire team at Average Joe’s.
