Randolph Matthews

What happens if you cross Bobby Mcferrin, Youssou n’ dour and Seal with a Vocal percussionist? Meet vocal voyager Randolph Matthews.

If you’ve caught Randolph live, or his music you’ll understand Randolph Matthews operates in his own parallel world, well away from traditional mainstream record label marketing formulae. His music is an evolving journey, rooted in purity and unshackled blues and soul expression, drawing from the greats of Youssou n’dour, Seal and Bobby McFerrin Randolph reflects on when it started I fell in love with music when I was seven years old, with two tape recorders in my bedroom. My mum loved singing while cooking down stairs, so I learnt to layer up voices and beats upstairs which, over time, got a bit lost during my teens. At 21, I left work as a telecommunication engineer to follow my heart and passion and pursue music as a career, re-kindling the layering voices I had learnt as a kid”
