Crash Landing is the second release and follow up to the Let's Brighten It Up (EP).
"Matt Stansberry’s latest project offers a sound that is both familiar and fresh – which is no small feat. The ten-plus member band delivers this exoteric rhythm and blues-meets-modern pop vibe by way of layered horns, dual guitars, keys/organ, a ‘pocket’ rhythm section and sassy, backing vocals. It's a potent mixture. And the group’s sophomore release, Crash Landing, offers a little extra appeal for star-crossed lovers and all who’ve felt a touch of life’s blues."
– Jim Johnson, KGOU (NPR)
"Stansberry's Buddy Holly look and Chuck Berry aesthetic cook with his large band featuring some amazing background singers and brass to complete one heck of a rocking outfit. Despite the retro vibe, Stansberry's songwriting and musical chops create very modern sensibilities."
– Scott Rains, The Lawton Constitution
