Vancouver musicians Matt Storm and Ivan Hartle are excited to announce the release of their new collaborative single ‘More To Find’ out today on all digital platforms. Watch video here.
The story behind ‘More To Find’ is a serendipitous one because Matt and Ivan didn’t set out to create a collab track. In fact, it kind of happened by accident.
“I’ve been producing and recording Ivan’s music for over a year now, and he showed up at the studio one day with a long list of ‘to do’s’ for his songs in progress,” says Matt Storm. “We both sat there feeling a bit overwhelmed with the tasks ahead, so we plugged in a Wurlitzer keyboard and started jamming. Ivan started playing a riff that caught my attention that he had written it the week before. I quickly laid down a percussive rhythm on the body of an acoustic guitar, a technique I’d been toying with for a while, and it set the foundation around the keyboard. Once we had that, Ivan simply said ‘Is this our collab track?’ He could sense I was itching to get on the song. Riding the wave of inspiration, we organized melodies, wrote lyrics, and recorded the entire song in that one day.”
‘More To Find’ has a soul-influenced, laid back vibe perfect for Sunday morning playlists. But despite its chill mood, the song’s deeper meaning is a bit more heavy.
“‘More To Find’ is a song about soul searching, coming to terms with your past, and embracing the uncertainty of your future,” says Ivan Hartle. “Matt and I have similar musical tastes, so this collaboration was long overdue, and it came together with a level of spontaneity and inspiration that’s captured in the recording.”
Matt Storm and Ivan Hartle’s new single ‘More To Find’ is available now on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, and other digital retailers and streaming services worldwide. For more information, please visit: mattstorm.ca + ivanhartlemusic.com
