  8. Rock & Roll Oblivion - “ Lanny Cardola is one of my favorite people and his writing abilities shine here. This is one of my favorite songs to perform.”

  9. Shades- “Jake Hays wrote this song but Matt and I did some rewrites. Jake and I recorded a duet of his original “Shades” on my album Reverie. Now we have two unique versions of a great song!”

  10. Draggin’ The Line - “Kenny Laguna suggested this song. It was a fine addition.”

  11. Breakout - “ This was a fun collaboration with Matt at the helm. It has a bit of everything!”

  13. What Do All The People Know ? – “A great choice from Kenny Laguna. The harmonies were fun! It’s really a great song!”

  14. Gimme - “Gina Gershon wrote this song and owned it in her original demo performance but I do love the Beach Boys musical breakdown with saxophone!”

  15. Queens of Noise - “paying homage to the late Sandy West, Matt took extra care to play just like she did. A duet with Brody Dalle made this even more of an honor. Juliette Lewis and The Veronica’s were the Cherry on Top of this Runaways favorite. We miss you Sandy! You would be so proud.”
