“MacKelcan's previous album No Turning Back picked up steam last year with heavy radio play and several high-profile tours. He will release a new six-song EP titled Slow Down this weekend at a CD release party at the Windjammer. Produced by Aaron Tap, best known as pop-rock songwriter Matt Nathanson's guitarist, it's a fine effort.”
"Matt Mackelcan puts his heart into his writing and his stage show to the point that when listeners or audience members are exposed to it they connect and become instant fans"
"Behind his cheerful, laid-back manner, Matt MacKelcan is a serious guy, most concerned about writing solid rock songs, performing well on stage and getting out there—way out there...(with his) melodic modern folk-pop style.”
"Matt's [band] music toes the delicate line between jam band and acoustic pop with soulful vocals and a happy vibe, which should be just what the doctor ordered."
"Tell you what I did see that moved my soul (because there was plenty that didn't), Matt Mackelcan............ he grabs a guitar and jams like Dave Matthews."
““On the stage the good natured Matt MacKelcan, spills his soul in four minute intervals to endearing local crowds. His infectious personality and hook laden storytelling have garnered him a college following and a string of dates throughout the southeast."”
