Every now and then a really good song comes out with a backstory behind its creation that’s as impressive as the track itself. “Shine,” the latest offering from Chicago songsmith Mathien, is one of those songs. As he explains, “(the) song was written after a life-altering experience. Made a major lifestyle change and as a result it reignited a passion and inspiration that has long been missing from my life.” The experience seems to have been a blessing in disguise for Mathien, who bounces back with the best singles of his career to date. If you like what you hear be sure to grab his latest project, Darling Television, on iTunes.
