Released in September of 2011, 528Hz is the result of 3 years of critical observation. Musically, it's somewhere between my 2008 release, 'Acoustic Guitars & Ooh La La’s’ & Mpaths’ 2010 release Elevate. The CD is available for download from iTunes, cdbaby.com & Amazon among others.Buy Now
Released in the beginning of 2008, Acoustic Guitars and Ooh La La’s is darker than my first album & is completely acoustic (well actually there’s two tracks that don't have acoustic guitars on them & one of them is an accapala tune!). It followed weekly requests from my fans for an acoustic album. The CD is available for download for only US$7.97 from cdbaby.com & iTunes for the usual prices at Mathew James White – Acoustic Guitars & Ooh la La’s among others.Buy Now
Released in 2004, That’s Just Me, was my first album. It came about largely after the band I had in London, ‘Hamilton’ broke up. Having said that, there’s only one track on the album that doesn’t feature some of the bands former members and that’s because it’s an acoustic track. Weather it be Guy's great bass playing (Guy plays Bass in ‘Fink’) or the keyboard pop brilliance of Luke Juby. The CD is available for download on iTunes – That’s Just Me, but by far the best deal is here for US$6.49Buy Now

"...lediglich seine Gitarre und Songs, die nur so vor positiver Energie strotzten" - rp-online / "Seine Liebe zur Musik ist nicht nur vom ersten Lied an zu spüren, sie steckt an." - Merkur
Wenn dir die Musik von Passenger, Ed Sheeran, und Neil Finn gefällt, wirst du sicher auch Mathew James White zu schätzen wissen. Der gebürtige Neuseeländer und mittlerweile seit Jahren in Berlin ansässige Musiker wird aufgrund seines Repertoires voller eingängig chilliger und mitunter auch rockiger Melodien oft mit den genannten Größen des Musikbusiness verglichen.
Seine Musik kann am besten als "Kiwi, dream, folk" beschrieben werden. Er befindet sich auf ständiger Europa-Tour und hat dabei über die Jahre eine starke und immer weiter steigende Fangemeinde aufgebaut - oft spielt er vor ausverkauftem Haus. Mathew hat beim Blue Balls Festival 2017 in Luzern gespielt, neben Stars wie Davis Gray, Peter Doherty & Jose Gonzalez.
Sein im September 2017 veröffentlichtes viertes und jüngstes Studioalbum "I'm Thinking of You" ist sein wahrscheinlich bisher persönlichstes Werk, das sich mit Thermen beschäftigt, welche die meisten Menschen lieber unter den Teppich kehren möchten.
Neben "I'm Thinking of You", hat White drei weitere Studio Album veröffentlicht : "That's Just Me" in 2004, Acoustic Guitars & Ooh La La's in 2007 & 528Hz in 2011, sowie ein Live-Album "Songs From My Wohnzimmer" in 2014.
Bei seinem Seitenprojekt Mpath handelt es sich um eine dreiköpfige Band, die er mit dem deutschen Drummer Phillip Renz und dem englischen Hitproduzenten Martyn Phillips gegründet hat. Gemeinsam hat die Band seit 2006 drei Studioalbum herausgebracht.
"... bursting with positive energy” - rp-online / "hooked from the first song" - Mercury
If you like the music of Neil Finn, Passenger and Ed Sheeran, you'll almost certainly appreciate Kiwi dream folk specialist Mathew James White. The New Zealand born, Berlin based Singer Songwriter, is often compared to all three artists with his repertoire of hook filled, chilled out & at times, rocky material.
He constantly tours Europe and has built up a strong and ever-growing fan base over the years, often playing to sold-out houses. Mathew played at the Blue Balls Festival 2017 in Lucerne alongside artists such as Davis Gray, Peter Doherty & Jose Gonzalez.
His fourth and most recent studio album "I'm Thinking of You", released in September 2017 is his most personal work to date, partially influenced by the loss of a child. The albums creation was very central in dealing with his grieving process. "I’m Thinking of You" also taps into subjects such as recognising our own power, longing for those we love & the anticipation of new life.
In addition to "I'm Thinking of You", White has released three other studio albums: "That's Just Me" in 2004, Acoustic Guitars and Ooh La La's in 2007 & 528Hz in 2011, as well as a live album "Songs From My Living Room" in 2014.
His side project Mpath is a three-piece band founded with German drummer Phillip Renz and the English hit producer Martyn Phillips. The band has released three studio albums to date.
