VH live cr- Brett Missick(1)

On Episode 028, Matt from Vertical Horizon calls in for a great chat. As the frontman and chief songwriter of Vertical Horizon, Matt penned some of the biggest hits of the late ’90s and early ’00s including “Everything You Want” (which eventually hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100) and “You’re A God.” Scannell formed Vertical Horizon in the early ’90s at Georgetown University along with fellow student and songwriter Keith Kane. The duo released two albums, 1992’s There And Back Again and 1995’s Running On Ice, before signing to RCA for the major-label efforts Everything You Want (1999) and Go (2003). Vertical Horizon’s newest album, Echos From The Underground, was released in 2013, and Matt’s also been collaborating off and on with renowned songwriters like Richard Marx and Bruce Hornsby.
