Building on his experiences from his first album, Mathew is releasing his new album, on Friday, 12 May 2017.
Artfully combining his flawless, soulful voice with some of the best producers’ work in the country, Mathew is on the fast track to claiming his stake as a household name in South Africa.
We caught up with him earlier this week.
Everything. It’s my hero and friend. Music is me at my best, but also my getaway and release.
I have screamed at many mic cables, but you can expect a few fumbles after 8 years on stage.
Whiskey most of the time, but nobody complains about a sneaky tequila.
Happy – Pharrell Williams.
To perform at the Grammy’s.
I play numerous instruments and most of them are self-taught so my style is often unorthodox or different to what people expect and vocally I’m not afraid to make mistakes.
Mr. Gold, Mat, Matty.
I would be a tap dancer. I was in my high school musical and also enjoyed tap dancing during my time at the Waterfront Theatre School.
Approachable, loyal, confidant, buoyant, convincing.
Michael Jackson – BAD album
Any Red-Hot Chilli Peppers album
340ml – Moving album
Lenny Kravitz – History album
Arctic Monkeys – Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not album
My matte Gold Gibson Les Paul I lost last year. She was a lovely lady.
Singing in the shower, writing a song or creating a new composition everyday. Laughing and smiling. Eating amazing food and playing acoustic guitar.
My gold rotary watch.
Backstage I would say. “Awe, let’s go kill all this mense,” meaning let’s impress these paying customers.
It will always be music related. I was blessed with two incredibly sensitive ears and nobody likes bad sound.
Get lost in the music. I love life on stage.
Mathew Gold & AKA – No Ordinary Guy
To drop a Grammy-winning album and make a lot of money.
