Matt Koziol Shines Bright With A “Slow Burn” On New Song Out Today (1.28)

Matt Koziol has worked behind the scenes in music collaborating with John Paul White, Joy Oladokun, Jimmie Allen, Charlie Worsham and more. Today (1.28), he shares his own story with his own voice on his new single “Slow Burn." Listen

With a riveting Bob Dylan-meets-red dirt country harmonica intro, “Slow Burn” finds Koziol releasing the anger he never had a chance to express after the end of a long-term relationship. The lyrics serve as a beautiful metaphor for how wildfire romances turn into slow burning heartbreaks. 

Written by Koziol with Wes Harllee, and produced by Jars of Clay member Matthew Odmark, it’s a versatile ear-worm that finds its home in both the alt indie-Americana and mainstream country worlds.

Koziol sets love aflame in the "Slow Burn" music video, here:

"This video is an enhanced reenactment for me," says Koziol. "So much of the song, lyrically, is true to what happened, and the video really speaks to it -- everything from the broken home furniture to the fire. Giving a larger-than-life visual allows people to see how heavy the real-life moment felt. It was a moment of release and moving on. This was a tough moment in my life, and I'm not the first to have gone through it. I hope this video offers some validation to the anger some people feel they never have a chance to feel or experience from the end of a relationship.

“Slow Burn” follows Koziol’s simmering work-hard anthem “Work All Day” (10.29), which is inspired by the blue-collar town of Linden, NJ he was raised in. Watch Koziol perform the track with his one-of-a-kind husky vocals, here:

Born and raised in a Polish/Italian-American household in the Tri-State area, Koziol was exposed to a diverse array of music, art and culture. He grew up listening to everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Nickel Creek, from Billy Joel to Elvis Presley, and more who influenced the music he performs today. Koziol is also a talented multi-instrumentalist adept at guitar, piano, bass, pedal steel, dobro and banjo.

Koziol is slated to release his debut album this spring. More information to come. In the meantime, visit
