If you are into world music, urban folk or jazz you’ll understand that Randolph Matthews operates in his own parallel world where his music is an evolving journey, drawing on the greats of yesteryear in soul and African rhythms. Matthews channels the sounds of Marvin Gaye and Bobby McFerrin in his debut album I Love, an aurally delicious blend of emotive words, chant inspired with progressive beats. His second album, Precious released in 2012, reflects the many aspects of his kaleidoscopic palette, both uplifting and liberating; he takes the audience on a journey through spiritual songs and movement, using looped samples and storytelling. The result is unique and intimate, with beautiful melodies.
