The buzz around the Gold and his new album has caught the attention of major label Soul Candi who have just signed Gold’s “The Rush” joining the likes of Micasa, Kent & Euphonik.

Since Idols, Mathew has been busy in studio recording his album, on national television, on air and also doing gigs and at concerts sharing a stage with huge household names. Idols, indeed was a stepping stone for Mathew. He is driven for success and because of his vision, he will strive to reach every goal set for himeslf.


Reeva Song:


Talented local singer-songwriter Mathew Gold has only gone and broke our hearts this morning by releasing a song about Reeva Steenkamp and her last words.

The moving acoustic tribute includes emotional lines like “When did I choose the wrong love?… Take your ring and your good luck…” and “Since when have I lost touch? Since when have I lost love?”. There’s also the dark “I got something to tell you… I had a dream that I dreamt that I chocked you!” and the song ends with the chilling words “I don’t need you”. Yoh!

Taking a snap of himself with Oscar, Mathew wrote: “We have slowly started to forget about him. So inspiring how he changed his life and equally sad how it ended in one night!”

How did the song come about? “Yesterday, (1 July) I visited the University Of Pretoria and took this picture of myself next to Oscar Pistorius. I wrote and recorded this song with a fictional opinion about what Reeva’s last words were. This is my unofficial story,” Mathew wrote on his Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Mat adds that the song can be applied to not only Oscar and Reeva, but to all couples. “This is not just about them [Reeva and Oscar]; many people are in tough situations daily. This is also for you.”
