Event description

Description

South African rock star, Ard Matthews, takes his indelible lyrics and melody arrangements on a European tour this Summer, with a stop at The Classic Grand, Glasgow. Together with his band Just Jinjer, Ard achieved double platinum status with their debut. As a solo artist he released his debut solo album ‘First Offerings’ in the winter of 2012 to critical acclaim and continues to write and release under his name, as well as fronting Just Jinjer. Expect all the classics and some new songs from this legend of the South African music scene.


All Comes Round, Just Jinjer's debut became one of the biggest selling rock genre albums of all time in their native country of South Africa, achieving doubl...e platinum status in its first year, with the follow up album Something For Now reaching the same status a year later.


Just Jinjer have shared the stage with many iconic international artists on many stages across the world. Most notably at the Nelson Mandela 46664 Concert, Johannesburg in 2009 where they performed with the likes of The Goo Goo Dolls, Annie Lennox, Razorlight, Ludacris, Corrinne Bailey Rae, Peter Gabriel, Live, and Angélique Kidjo. They have also performed and shared the bill with many international stars such as U2, Counting Crows, Def Leppard, INXS, Maroon 5, One Republic, Hootie and the Blowfish, The Strokes, and many more.


Travelling frequently to countries all over the world, Ard and Just Jinjer wowed audiences across Europe, Australia and the United States, where they eventually settled in Los Angeles for 8 years. The band went on to sign an international recording deal with Curb Records, and played at some of the most well-known and influential clubs and festivals before returning to SA in 2009.
Ard released his debut solo album ‘First Offerings’ in the winter of 2012 to critical acclaim and shortly after teamed up with South African folk icon Vusi Mahlasela for Ard’s single Umuntu. He also recorded Jeff Buckley’s Lover, You should Have Come Over with famed composer and performer Paul Hepker (Oscar winning movie Tsotsi, composer for Deadliest Catch, Rendition, & Eye in the Sky soundtracks).


Ard now plays regularly as a solo act worldwide, as well as still fronting Just Jinjer playing at well-known festivals such as Oppikoppi, Rocking The Daisies and other high profile venues across his native country.
Ard recently returned from a string of sold out international shows in the United Kingdom and Dubai and during the end of 2016 released a brand new single entitled ‘Wonder Years’, a genre crossover track incorporating pop and thumping folk sounds.
