Talk: Words and Music

Matt Hales (aka Aqualung) visits Google's Mountain View, CA headquarters to perform a few tracks from his album "Words and Music." This event took place on October 15, 2008, as part of the Authors@Google series. Words and Music is the the 2008 album by Hale, an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. This is Hales' fourth album (and third U.S. release) under his longstanding nom de disc Aqualung, and it has the feeling of a series of deep emotional truths whispered in confidence.
