Matt Burns described himself as an alternative artist during the '90s, a period of time when "alternative music" was arguably marketed with the abandon of the bubblegum music of an earlier era. On his two mid-'90s releases, Delve (1994) and Resonate (1995), Burns possesses a deep and resonant voice that he applies to his affecting and accessible synth-folk-rock hybrid. ~ Will Grega, Rovi
