The Cost Of Everything And The Value Of Nothing is the latest and fifth full studio album from Omaha musician Matt Cox. Cox is an old soul whose roots and music are steeped in the sounds bluegrass and Americana music.Cox has established himself as an emerging artist in the Omaha singer/songwriter scene and a growing fan base. Cox’s musical talents and abilities are highlighted on this album, from his abilities as a slide guitarist, which are highlighted on songs like “Jumping River Blues, Little Lucy and Nighttime Drifter”. These songs also showcase Cox’s signature harmonica style, however the most meaningful songs can be the simplest and those sentiments are echoed on “Drama Queen” and “ The Charcoal Grill Song”, which offer a glimpse into the singer’s personal life and the love and value of family. There is a cohesiveness in the way Cox’s guitar, voice and harmonica blend together. It’s the latter two songs that really showcase Cox’s honesty and genuineness as a artist, the mood is both heartfelt and somber. Each song depicts Cox’s definition of love one for his daughter and one for mother both a thing beauty. Cox’s depiction of life through his musical landscape is not done alone, he is supported by his band and longtime friends, Colin Duckworth pedal steel, guitars and mandolin, Vern Fergesen accordion and piano, and Josh Dunwoody upright bass. Strong instrumental intros combined with Cox’s raspy, country drawl is real Americana as it’s best, personal, honest, real it seems for Cox his life is a depiction of his art from start to finish.
