Matt Stoll - ‘Where It’s Quiet’ (Exclusive EP Track By Track)

Matt Stoll released his new EP, ‘Where It’s Quiet’ with plans for a release show on September 5th. About the EP he says, “Sometimes when I’m feeling anxious or having trouble sleeping, I’ll imagine I’m traveling, going on a trip. Taking myself to somewhere all my negative feelings can’t reach me. Somewhere I can no longer hear my thoughts. To where it’s quiet”. We’re happy to bring you his exclusive track by track for the new EP below. 

“Finding a way to your heart”

I met the love of my life, Becca, on a dating app. Four months later, we were living together. It wasn’t easy, but nothing ever worth it is. Life really does come at you fast, and while we were enjoying our little place we called “home” we came across a few bumps in the road. I had been injured, and was unable to work for almost a year and a half. It was really difficult to build our relationship, while also trying to pay rent, and keep the lights on. Becca worked 24/7 as I struggled with depression, but we loved each other and we knew that meant we were in this together. As soon as I recovered from my injury and finally had some hope, things would get better. Becca got very sick, and was in and out of the hospital so the roles were reversed for a while. Two years into being together, we still felt like we had to grin and bear it. We had to make our love the most important. We had to make our love home.

“Hold it against You”

All couples fight and argue. It’s completely normal. I think having the awareness we all have our boiling point, but choosing to focus on the love you have is what really matters. Sometimes the dream of getting away together, and all of it becoming true can really help in the moment. It was meant to be a cute and fun love song, but it does have some more meaning.


Growing up, I always remember doing whatever I could to make other people happy. Even if they were unkind to me. I just had this insatiable need for acceptance or approval, and I’d do anything for it. I’d always stretch myself so thin, and it was never healthy. When my anxiety and depression got really bad, and became overwhelming, I eventually hit rock bottom. When I found unconditional love, I slowly learned to unlearn being a people-pleaser. I became aware of how toxic people can be, and I had to stand up for myself to set boundaries. The world is full of hornets that’ll hurt you, and I’ve always just been a bee looking for some honey.

“I Am Free”

When I was little, I used to make up stories all the time using my imagination. I loved the reactions from the stories I told. As I got older, I began to crave attention and lie a lot. It became a really bad habit, and I lost a lot of good friends while getting myself into a lot of trouble with the things I said. I did it so often I lost who I was. I got so good at it that I didn’t know if I was lying to myself. Doing it for so long just created huge walls of trust issues around me. I never let anyone in, knowing how easy it was to do what I did. Eventually I let someone in. I made strides to be a better person. I made a lot of productive changes. I had to learn to love myself enough to not lie or hurt anyone else. It was okay to be me. Once that confidence grew strong enough, I was able to break through and break down the walls. I was free.

In The Light”

When you meet someone that makes you want to be a better person you have to hold on to them, and never let them go.

“Where It’s Quiet”

If you have something people want, they’ll do whatever they can to get it. They’ll hurt, lie, and steal. No matter what happens, you have to be true to yourself to keep going forward. Go where you’re loved unconditionally. Find where the light is. Do what makes you happy. Always.
