Matthew Sweet Returns To Georgia
Singer and songwriter Matthew Sweet got his start in the Athens, Georgia, music scene in the 1980s. His star rose in the 90s with hits like 100% Fun, Altered Beast and Blue Sky on Mars. Sweet’s drive to creative music hasn’t slowed down.
Matthew Sweet speaks about his music and Athens roots with On Second Thought.
“I can’t believe how old I am that I still get to do what I do,” Sweet told us. “When people ask me what advice you have for people starting out, I would always say you have to love doing music most of all. It needs to be something you do in the absence of success."
Sweet's latest album, "Tomorrow’s Daughter," came out last week. He returns to Georgia for a show at 8 p.m. at Atlanta’s Terminal West. He shared with us two songs off the new album: Lady Frankenstein and Girl with Cat.
