Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Matt Hectorne & the Family Tree/Rebekah Jean/Morgan Mecaskey

When: Fri., Dec. 6, 9 p.m. 2013

With pronounced Southern leanings, Matt Hectorne has spent the past few years setting out into his personal musical frontier and discovering what sounds and messages lie within him. His solo run, of course, has come after a stint in Cleveland’s own Humble Home. But with the release of his third album, Show Your Love, Hectorne is proving that he’s got plenty to say and plenty to play. This latest outing is a terrific collection of tunes, anchored in many ways by the patient centerpiece “Man in the Frame.” As that tune builds, Hectorne’s gentle acoustic melody winds around reflective story and the sparse-but-orchestral backing of his band. With tonight’s show at the Beachland comes the guarantee that those in attendance with be among the first to catch Hectorne’s newest material live. It wouldn’t be wise to pass that up. (Sandy)
