Mat Kearney at The Mercury Ballroom
Kearney's interesting blend of hip-hop and folk intrigued Inpop Records, which offered him the deal he'd been looking for and released his debut album, Bullet, in 2004. Kearney departed slightly from his rhymes and concentrated more on guitar work for his follow-up effort, Nothing Left to Lose. Released by Aware/Columbia Records in 2006,the album proved to be fairly popular, with three songs appearing in various episodes of Grey's Anatomy and two songs enjoying successful runs as singles. Kearney returned three years later with City of Black & White, supporting the album's release with a tour alongside Keane and the Helio Sequence. In July 2011, he released Young Love on theUniversal label, coinciding with a tour with Owl City. In 2014, Kearney announced the release of his follow-up, Just Kids. Scheduled for an early 2015 release, the album saw him working once again with Josh Crosby -- as well as MDL (Justin Bieber, Maroon 5) -- while drawing influence for the album from his time growing up in Eugene, Oregon.
