Matt Pryor, the revered frontman for the Get Up Kids and the New Amsterdams, will be releasing his debut solo album, entitled Confidence Man, (Vagrant) July 29th. The 15-track disc was truly a solo effort - Pryor wrote, played, sang, recorded and produced the album from his home studio in Lawrence, Kansas.

Confidence Man is an intimate collection of folk-tinged acoustic songs that strip Pryor’s skillful songwriting down to its bare, emotive minimum. The storylines are less autobiographical and more observant, with a sophisticated twist (especially on the title track and “Loralai”).

“I’ve always wanted to do something that was quieter and acoustic and could be played by one person,” says Pryor. “I just want to have my little folk moment.”

“Loralai” can be heard now at http://www.myspace.com/mattpryorsongs An August tour is in the works and likely will include daytime performances by The Terrible Twos - Pryor’s kids music band with their own new release to be announced shortly.

as his previous projects have always been some of my favorite music i must say ill probably have to invest in this as well.

I have this one live recording of a show he did in Ann Arbor on tour with Straylight Run and the Format and someone else a few years ago. Amazing.
