culture notes: songwriter mathew james white guest in wiesentheid

New zealand-born singer/songwriter mathew james white will be performing next friday, 15. November, in the wiesentheid concert cellar. The songwriter began his musical career in his school days in his hometown of hamilton with cover songs in a school band, but also with classical guitar performances. After finishing school, he ventured to neighboring australia, where he stayed for the next ten years. Mathew james white played in several bands, among others with his cousin jenny morris, who made a name for herself in australia with several top ten hits. In 1999, the musician moved to london, where he was able to make important contacts, especially at the kashmir club. In london he also released the album "that’s just me". Since 2005 the 42-year-old lives in berlin and tours through germany and europe.

His catchy, chilling songs tell of moments when everything makes sense at once, they are everyday stories of love’s woe and love’s happiness, inspired by the australian expanse and the rough city life in london and berlin. His technical skills are particularly evident in instrumental pieces.

On friday, 15. November, at 19.30 o’clock he makes station in the wiesentheider konzertkeller. Tickets for 10 euro are available in advance in wiesentheid at the town hall, at the weltladen and at the bookstore heinlein or for 12 euro at the box office. Photo: brooke dean
