“Matthew Mayer provides the soundtrack of our household. My young kids have grown up listening to his gorgeous talent. When my 6-year-old hears it, he sighs, and whispers, “So soothing.” But for me, it’s more than that: what I love most about Matthew Mayer’s music is that it, at once, stirs up emotions while offering peace. I feel an ache when I hear it.”
— Faith Salie, CBS Sunday Morning & NPR's Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!
