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

Wenn dir die Musik von Jack Johnson, Ben Howard, William Fitzsimmons & Father John Misty gefällt, wirst du sicher auch Mathew James White zu schätzen wissen. Der gebürtige Neuseeländer und Neuberliner wird aufgrund seines Repertoires voller eingängig chilliger und mitunter auch funky Melodien oft mit den genannten Größen des Musikbusiness verglichen.
Wie auch Frankfurts You Fm DJ ‘Raffa’ bemerkte, 'Mathew James White ist ganz, ganz ganz toll! ‘Zu Beginn seiner Karriere, damals noch in seiner Heimatstadt Hamilton, Neusseland, verbrachte Mathew die meiste Zeit damit Cover Gigs mit seiner zu Schulzeiten gegründeten Band zu spielen, sowie klassischen Gitarrenvorträgen im starken Kontrast dazu.
Schon bald nach Abschluss der Schule wagte er hat er den Schritt über den Ozean hin zum Nachbarland Australien, wo er die nächsten zehn Jahre bleiben sollte und sich mit zahlreichen Bands über Wasser hielt. Darunter waren zum einen eine Funk-Formation mir Namen "Vibrus", sowie die Band seiner Cousine Jenny Morris, die sich in Australien mit mehreren Top-Ten Hits einen Namen gemacht hat.
1999 war es für Mathew an der Zeit nach Europa, genauer gesagt nach London zu ziehen, wo er innerhalb der nächsten 6 Jahre verschiedene musikalische Beziehungen knüpfen konnte, größtenteils dank eines Veranstaltungsortes – dem Kashmir Klub.
Mathew James White is a New Zealand born, Berlin based singer-songwriter. He is almost always on tour, performing mainly in Germany.
Mathew kicked off his musical career while still at school, naturally enough in New Zealand, playing in a band with school friends in local area pubs that could only be described as ‘toilets’ & constantly arguing with police who would invariably come & check everyone’s proof of age at the concerts. ‘The whole band was under drinking age’ Mathew points out, which was fine, as long as we didn’t drink of course. ‘One night this cop just wasn’t buying my story that I was playing in the band when he came up & asked me for my ID during one of our breaks. A drunk local (ironically & luckily) came to his rescue & the show continued.
