Biography

Like all of us, Matthew E. White was born into a constructed world. His unfolded out of the mingled sands of Virginia Beach and Manila, the youngest son in a family that raised him barefoot between the blurred racket of that far eastern jungle city and the backyard lightning-bug-hum of a trimmed southern lawn. His first moves, from picking up a basketball to picking up a guitar, were cast in ... Read more in Amazon's Matthew E White Store

5.0 out of 5 stars My album of 2013 so far... 2 May 2013
Format:Audio CD
Did you ever here about that great lost album from 1971? It is so obscure that even critics and publications have never mentioned it. They simply didn't know about it. But how could they NOT know about it? It was recorded by a super group featuring The Band, Curtis Mayfield, Harry Nilsson and The Staple Singers. They called it Big Inner and just to deceive everyone still further, they put a big hairy white guy on the front cover and pretended his name was Matthew E. White. Crazy huh.

Seriously though, this album has all those elements and more in the stew. It is at once uplifting and gentle, funky and beautiful, soulful and jazzy and everything in between. It's not too short, it's not too long. It's just right.

Well done Matthew E White.

4.0 out of 5 stars Matthew E White - Blue Eyed Soul 6 Jan 2013
By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
For those of you who have been longing for that type of experimentation, which Lampchop majored upon in their greatest album "Nixon" (2000) then your search is complete. On this new album "Big Inner", out of the corner of some dark studio emerges 29 year musician Matthew E White who takes country, soul and R&B and serves them up in a big old stew which Kurt Wagner would warmly applaud. He uses the label "Blue Eyed Soul" and it is an intoxicating confection of sweet sounds and farm house spirituals played a big musical collective of musicians straining like greyhounds at the start to get going. White is a session musician by trade but more than this he has his own Spacebomb Records imprint and intends to use this with vision. Thus he harks back to the days of Stax records, has a recording studio in Richmond Virginia and a house band, with the idea being that artists signed to Spacebomb will utilise all these musical facilities including the session players on the spot.

On the evidence of "Big Inner" he has chosen his musical comrades, including a full horn and string section, with real care. They produce an album which has first class honours written all over it. It includes seven tracks all anchored by White's soulful almost spoken vocal and the sort of backdrop which labels like Stax and the Muscle Shoals studio in Alabama used to patent. Opener "One of these days" sets a groove with a big rolling bass to provide the architecture but is never showy or booming. It relies on the growing rumble of horns, the interjection of the an occasional soulful guitar and White's slowly unfolding vocal teasing the song to its almost Southern gospel conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Love to Mr White 18 April 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
This is not an album that offers quick and easy thrills. You need to spend time with it, picking away at the layers in order to marvel at it's immaculate construction. The arrangements offered by Matthew E.White and his band are just perfect. Measured and assured, this is a debut album that will surely be canonized in the magazine polls of the future!

5.0 out of 5 stars Matthew finds his 'Big Inner'. 19 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Mr White's debut is a cross section of all things great in music; lush strings, rising horns, gospel tinges and some wonderful arranging, guitar work and of course the voice. Many influences to these ears ranging from trippy country soul/R n B/Curtis Mayfield to Madchester/Primal Scream lovelyness! Only seven tracks, but a deep, full and spiritual album.
