Recording: Matthew "Doc" Dunn

Artist: Matthew "Doc" Dunn

Songs: Simple One + Blue Moon [Big Star cover]

Recorded at The Tranzac (Main Hall), November 4, 2018.

Matthew "Doc" Dunn - Simple One

Matthew "Doc" Dunn - Blue Moon

Subsequent to this set at its official release show, Matt Dunn would explode his Lightbourn album into full-on rock glory — but here he was still gazing inwards with its songs, and keeping them stripped bare. Even so, this wasn't a "solo" set in the truest sense, as Dunn (with a 12-string acoustic guitar) was joined by Jonathan Adjemian on piano and Derek "Grasshopper" Madison on percussion. Singing his heart out, the set felt rawer than the album's produced takes, and pared-down arrangements (like "Simple One"'s simple piano accompaniment) gave the songs an entirely different feel.
