Mat Kearney, "City of Black & White" (Aware/Columbia)
Singer/songwriter who broke through with 2006's "Nothing Left to Lose" returns with a surefooted, confident set of adult pop songs that chronicle he journey over the last few years and the relationships found and lost during that time. "Closer to Love" is a lovely testament to healing power of love, while "Here We Go" is an effective counterpoint about the fragility of our unions. Fans of Coldplay will scoop this up.
