    Petty Troubles is a live orchestral pop album featuring the songs of Matt Montgomery, orchestrated by Brian Adam McCune, and produced by Brendan West. Petty Troubles is also the title of the companion documentary, directed by Isaac Pingree, that chronicles the process, perks, and pitfalls of recording an independent album live in one day with 30 Bay Area musicians. Though risky by design and imperfect by nature, we are extremely proud of the results. We hope that you’ll enjoy our labor of love.

lyrics

Activation, from desolation
take a good look around
simple pleasures, and no pressure
all it takes is a sound
So take a listen, uncover your ears
and Petty Troubles will soon disappear

Eyebrows raising, embracing
all the fates that arrive
So many choices, but your voice is
all it take to decide
So leave a message after the tone
'cause I don't know when again I'll be home
Take a listen uncover your ears
and Petty Troubles will soon disappear

Sometimes it seems that everybody's
waiting for you to faux pas
Don't be afraid to explain that you're not listening
but in your dreams it's never so unlikely
for you to succeed
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba bah
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
Do do do do do do do do do

So don't waste your time with Petty Troubles
You could waste your time
listening to the wrong things

So leave a message after the tone
'cause I don't know when again I'll be home
Take a listen, uncover your ears
and Petty Troubles will soon disappear
