"a delectable mix of crowd pleasing original songs… Americana/Country… lyrically rich melodies, throw them into a cocktail shaker and you have the yummy concoction that is Matt Moran & Arrogant Sage"

Caroline Cha, USC Songwriters

Last night, after waking from two back to back dreams, I decided to record what I remembered on my phone. I don’t often remember my dreams and typically make the mistake, upon waking from […]
Ha.. clickbait. It worked, you’re here! Now let me explain my indiscretion in a little more detail! I sleep with prostitutes from time to time. I know it isn’t what’s best for me. But I also know I’m not alone (because I’m with her, right?). It started years ago with a conversation at a client. […]
