Along the way Matt chose to compose, arrange, and record music, and naturally he drew from his many experiences and the people connected to them. There’s the local Jazz crew – Clay Sears, Steve McKie, Anthony Tidd and others laid down the signature tracks that speak of home, while Marsha Ambrosius, Stephen Costello, and Chill Moody speak of the diversity of Matt’s connections. The album evolved to become Church And State, a travelog in the world of Matt Cappy.
