    Recorded and produced by Matt Joe Gow and Andrew Pollock `Seven Years' takes its title from the chorus lyrics of a song (`Steady Life') from Matt's debut album `The Messenger': ``Seven years are gonna change a man . . . ''.

    Seven years have also changed some songs. Take the track `Down River' -- initially titled `The Messenger' and recorded at Sing Sing Studios with Nash Chambers for Matt's debut. The song evolved via years of touring and has been reborn as a different beast on this record.

    And time alters people, too, of course.

    For example, the third verse on `Georgia Rose' speaks about the death of Matt's grandfather and his memories of him as a child; `Right by You' documents the end of a long-term relationship that had begun in Matt's hometown (Dunedin, New Zealand) and finished in Melbourne; while `Runnin' on Time' is the sound of a band on the road, trying to win over new audiences with some loud rock 'n' roll.

    A diverse set of songs ranging from foot stomping rock 'n roll numbers and heartfelt americana belters through to harmony laden shimmering alt country and spacious ballads, 'Seven Years' contains seven years worth of Matt Joe Gow's finest work.

    Due to be released October, 2016, the CD comes in cardboard sleeve with artwork designed by renown Melbourne artist Bronwyn Watson.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Seven Years via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

Matt Joe Gow Melbourne, Australia

Very few artists wield so much charisma that they can sell you just about anything before you’ve realised what’s happened. Matt Joe Gow has the charisma to be one of those artists – but he isn’t.

Matt prefers to concentrate on the conviction. You don’t have to listen to more than thirty seconds of Matt’s debut 'The Messenger' or new album 'Seven Years' to appreciate that.

Track Name: I'm Your Man
I'm you man

There's a fire a burning
rain on the parade
There's a wheel a turning
let it turn, let it drive away

You don't need this wreckage
Just a change of plan
Been waiting in the wings, I'm done with it
Baby I'm your man

Trouble goin' fall away now
Trouble goin' be damned
Trouble goin' fall away now
Baby I'm your man

Hey, don't you wanna be something more?
I can give you that yes I can
Hey, let me tell you that's what loves for
I can give you that
I'm your man

Like a broken record
Or late night TV
It's just the same old same old
Baby come with me


Trouble goin' fall away now
Trouble goin' be damned
Trouble goin' fall away now
Baby I'm your man

Hey, don't you wanna be something more?
I can give you that yes I can
Hey, let me tell you that's what loves for
I can give you that
I'm your man
Track Name: Runnin' On Time
Runnin' On Time

Some friends of mine and me stayed up all through the night
Rockin' pretty steady 'til the sky went light
I'm gonna make you believe
You're gonna see what I see

Your Mama said I want you home on the double
That rock 'n roll music ain't nothing but trouble
But who you gonna believe"
I know you see what I see

If you want it well I'm Runnin' on time
back to where the music where it sound so right
more than once, more than twice
Let it roll all night

My little girl nothing wrong with what we making
Rock 'n roll music got your whole body shakin'
And now I know you believe
Yah, you see what I see

If you want it well I'm Runnin' on time
back to where the music well it sound so right
more than once, more than twice
Let it roll all night

If you want it well I'm Runnin' on time
back to where the lovin' well it felt so right
more than once, more than twice
Let it roll all night
Track Name: Bottle It Up, Pass It On
Bottle It Up, Pass It On

There is nothing more that I want than to give you my heart but you know it won't take
There is nothing more that I want than to give you myself but you know I wouldn't keep

There's gotta be someone you can walk hand in hand with cos I see you wear it on your sleeve
So Bottle it up and pass it on

There is nothing more that I want than to give you my hand but you know it wouldn't hold
There is nothing more that I want than to give you my touch but you know it's gone cold

There's gotta be someone out there you could love, someone who can give you what you need
So bottle it up and pass it on
I say bottle it up and pass it on

There is nothing more of our love, cos it's broken down, it's in pieces
There is no more that our love could take, when it's gone away you can't chase it
Now don't go thinkin I didnt love you babe cos I loved you with everything that I had
I just went away and I didn't come back
Now don't you think I didn't love you girl cos I swear with every inch there is of me
It broke my heart and I broke yours too
Track Name: Georgia Rose
Georgia Rose

I been traveling down these streets alone
Like a river flowing to the sea
Like a child scorned though duly loved
Or a gypsy born of no belief
Every town that I lay my head
'Fore I sleep there's a moments peace
When she comes to me singing low and sweet
I shall be released

Take me home sweet Georgia Rose, take me home let me live again
Take me home sweet Georgia Rose, with a voice that were heaven sent
Ain't a song that I wanna sing, ain't a river that I wanna ride
Without you sweet Georgia Rose by my side

The Days fell one by one
And the years started doubling up
'Til the kiss from a stranger sought
Were just lips to an empty cup
But when the truth that I knew inside
Weren't the words most wanna hear
It was the sweet sound of Georgia Rose
Singin' loud and clear

Take me home sweet Georgia Rose, take me home let me live again
Take me home sweet Georgia Rose, with a voice that were heaven sent
Ain't a song that I wanna sing, ain't a river that I wanna ride
Without you sweet Georgia Rose by my side

In the fields Ma, I dream it still
He's a waving like when I was young
His sleeves rolled, hands of soil, arms blackened from the sun
Oh when he passed lord it left me cold
Kinda cold ain't no shelter from
'Til her voice took me in a warm embrace and carried me in song

Take me home sweet Georgia Rose, take me home let me live again
Take me home sweet Georgia Rose, with a voice that were heaven sent
Ain't a song that I wanna sing, ain't a river that I wanna ride
Without you sweet Georgia Rose by my side
Track Name: Flowers In Your Hair ft. Katya Harrop
Flowers In Your Hair

Waking up alone I cross my heart
Now where’s a love that I can find in the dark?
Now where’s a love? now where’s a love? now where’s a love?

When I’m broken down out round the way
Give me a love I can take day by day
Now there’s a love, Now there’s a love, Now there’s a love

You may find it in the end
Try to hold it from the start
If it catch you unawares
That is love
That is love

If you were to pass this way again
Oh know that I’d be waiting on a train
Flowers in your hair, you’d look the same
Oh my love, Oh my love

You may find it in the end
Try to hold it from the start
If it catch you unawares
That is love
Track Name: Right By You
Right By You

I watch the rain on the hood of your car
As we’re sitting at the end of your street
Now there are things I wanna say
Things that I know now
Things I didn’t know then
So I’m asking

Don’t you ever wonder if it could’ve been right?
Don’t you ever wonder if it could’ve been right?
Sometimes I do wonder if I ever did right by you
Don’t you ever wonder if it could’ve been right?

That engine ain’t idling to well
And I know you’ve got work in the morning
But there’s things I gotta say
I don’t wanna make you cry, never again
But I’m asking

Don’t you ever wonder if it could’ve been right?
Don’t you ever wonder if it could’ve been right?
Sometimes I do wonder if I ever did right by you
Don’t you ever wonder if it could’ve been right?
Track Name: Glass Bottles
Glass bottles

There's alot of this magic goin around
There's alot of this magic goin around
Can you pick me up some of it?
Can you pick me up some of it?

There's alot to admire my eyes are wide
There's alot to admire my eyes are wide
Ain't a rouse your part of it
Ain't a rouse your part of it

But There's alot to be said for the deluded
When it comes to this old, this old heart
There's alot to be said for the deluded
Like glass bottles in an old shed
Gather dust like this old this old heart

Alot of these people come and go
alof of these people come and go
can you make me a part of it?
let me know if im a part of it

But There's alot to be said for the deluded
When it comes to this old, this old heart
There's alot to be said for the deluded
Like glass bottles in an old shed
gather dust like this old this old heart
Track Name: Let Love Be Now
Let Love Be Now

If love come quick
In a hurricane
Then let my house just blow down
let my house just blow down

Love come quick
or it's the end of this world
Let love be now

Let love be now

If love come quick
In our darkest hour
Then I feel we need it
Yes i feel we need it

Love come quick
or it's the end of this world
Let love be now
let love be now

Let love be now

We don't science
We don't need to pray
We just need love
We just need love

We don't need tomorrow
We're ready here today
We just need love
We just need love

If love come quick
In a hurricane
Then let my just house just blow on down

Love come quick
or it's the end of this world
Let love be now

Track Name: Bitter Pill
Bitter Pill

I know you
Yah I know you
You came in pieces
I asked no questions
You gave me no reasons

And it's a bitter pill
Got this sorrow to kill
Are we one in the same?
I see you in my lane
But are you in my way?

And it's a tender time
A tender time
A tender time
But I know you, yah I know you

It's the end of this year
You say we aint got nothing to fear
But I've seen that look before
And before u close the door
You shrug your shoulders and say

It's a tender time
It's a tender time
it's a tender time
But I know you, yah I know you
Track Name: Grand Ambition
Grand Ambition

I ain't a man of grand ambition
I ain't a man who wants for much
Oh my darling to be near you
To be near you, that's enough

You may think that we're rushing
Most of your friends they do too
You may say you do not know me
But do you love me? Cos that'll do

A love like this don't come around much
Most of the time don't come at all
So pack your things and come and see me
Come and see me
Or I'm coming for you

Out on the streets the folks are rushing
I often think about where to
And some may say that I'm going nowhere
But here beside you, you know it's true

A love like this don't come around much
Most of the time don't come at all
So pack your things and come and see me
Come and see me
Or I'm coming for you

I ain't a man of grand ambition
i ain't a man who wants for much
But here's what I want
Right here's what I want

I ain't a man of grand ambition
But here's what I want
Here's what I want
Track Name: Bye ft. Ange Takats
Bye

The smell of coffee on your hair
You say its better than the cigarettes
you say smokings better than TV
That's what you say, will you listen to me now?

Were better off this way
Oh I don't have it in me no more
We're better off this way
Just I don't have it in me to say
Bye

Ill swing by for some of my things
Maybe you've had a little time to think
It's not like it ever was that bad
But it's been a while since it was anything at all

Were better off this way
Just i don't have it in me no more
We're better off this way
Just I don't have it in me to say
Bye

It's like a coma that I woke from suddenly sober
It's from that same part that I spoke from
Its not that I don't love ya

Were better off this way
Just i don't have it in me no more
We're better off this way
Only I don't have it in me to say
Bye
