Dreams for the Broken - CD Review
By Patrick Ferris

Serena Matthews is a Nashville singer songwriter that is exploding onto the scene via the Internet, attracting over 115,000 downloads at her MP3.com page and earning two #1 slots in respective genres.

A truly gifted songwriter with a sound all her own, Serena draws her strength from powerful lyrics and a voice of an angel that overwhelmingly moved me. Her 2nd CD, Dreams for the Broken is 16 tracks of her poetry put to music. Her voice, sound, lyrics...everything, is completely intoxicating. Serena speaks from the heart and to the heart, singing songs about life and creating poetic imagery through her lyrics. Mild use of effects like reverb and echo in the right places casts an especially haunting and dreamy portrait for the listener.

Aside from her music, Serena is a philanthropist and driven political activist, performing for and supporting many different charities. Her gift of music speaks for the downtrodden that are unable to speak for themselves...from helping the homeless to abused animals; Serena Matthews is a breath of fresh air in an increasingly polluted world.

Serena also maintains a very professional online presence and works extremely hard to professionally promote her music. Her music can be heard in its entirety at her MP3.com page. Dreams for the Unbroken gets a strong recommendation from me as a CD that aspiring singer songwriters can learn from, and Serena Matthews gets a strong recommendation from me as a giving person we can all learn from.
