GIG OF THE WEEK

Ard Matthews

Barnyard Theatre (Monday)

CALLING all fans of Ard Matthews of the SA band Just Jinjer as he launches his debut solo album, First Offerings, at the Barnyard Theatre at Gateway on Monday.

Matthews is known as one of SA’s most prolific singers and songwriters. His heartfelt music and dynamic stage performances have inspired people across the globe. As the frontman for the group Just Jinjer, his lyrics and melodic arrangements led them to success with their debut album, All Comes Round (1997).

In 2010 he made a decision to pursue a solo album and so began an extensive writing process which took Matthews all over the world.

“This album has been a diary of my life in a way. It is a musical depiction of where I’ve been over the last couple of years and I’m really excited to share it with you. I hope the public is ready to listen to raw, unpretentious, brutally honest music, because that is what this is about.

“It also turns out that the general theme is love again; I guess that’s just me – no point in changing that now, right?

“While trends and fashions come and go, love always prevails,” said Matthews.

The live band that will accompany Matthews is called The Ard Matthews Affair and features him on vocals and bass guitar, accompanied by John Ellis (Tree 63) on guitar and Josh Klynsmith (Gangs of Ballet) on drums.
