MAT KEARNEY releases his highly anticipated new full-length album, JUST KIDS [Republic Records], in stores and through iTunes, Amazon MP3, and Google Play today. As soon as the record went live, it shot to the Top 3 of the iTunes Rock Albums Chart. Get it HERE!


It’s a big week for the critically acclaimed Oregon-born and Nashville-based singer and songwriter. He’ll perform the album’s latest single “Billion” on NBC’s The Today Show Wednesday February 25, 2015. The brilliantly buoyant and sweetly irresistible love song recently skyrocketed to #4 on Spotify’s Viral Chart and #7 on the Global Viral Chart and ascended to #1 on the iTunes Top Rock Songs Chart, increasing excitement for the release.

In addition, MAT’s “JUST KIDS” tour with special guests Parachute and Judah & The Lion commences March 5 at Knitting Factory in Spokane, WA. Get your tickets now!

JUST KIDS came together over the past few years while Mat toured the world. For the very first time, he built a portable studio on his bus, and he cut songs all over the globe from Los Angeles and Sweden to his home studio in Nashville. Most of this vision is a product of his own production, but he had a little help from MDL [Maroon 5, Justin Bieber] as well as frequent collaborator Josh Crosby.

Mat’s most recent album, 2011’s Young Love debuted at #1 on the Billboard Digital Chart and #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. It even was the first album to oust Adele’s 21 from its resident iTunes #1 spot. Known for ubiquitous anthems such as “Nothing Left to Lose”, “Hey Mama”, and “Ships in the Night”, his music has been featured in countless television shows and films ranging from Soul Surfer and Parenthood to The Closer, NCIS, 30 Rock, and Vampire Diaries. His 2006 major label debut Nothing Left to Lose has sold over 450,000 copies, while 2009’s City of Black & White hit #13 on the Billboard Top 200. In between it all, he supported everybody from John Mayer to Keane on the road.
