Welcome to Cover to Cover with Matt Tarka!

Welcome to Cover to Cover, a podcast featuring musical conversations about an album or song which has changed and enhanced someone’s life.

I’m your host, songwriter Matt Tarka. 

We humans connect with the presence of music in our own unique way – as an artist, a concertgoer, through our headphones, or as something that simply lives in our everyday background.

During each conversation, we will discuss a single or an album with a special guest. Our guest will choose the single or album and reflect on what that piece of music means to them. We may focus on lyrics, a guitar tone, a piano solo, a state of mind.

Through these conversations, we hope you will discover some new music, rekindle your love for an old forgotten song, and share a good moment with us as we sonically explore a world from Cover to Cover.
