13 Songs, 50 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Folk balladeer Matthew Mole performed half of this album's songs for the better part of two years before Just Music snapped him up. The SA record label took him out of his bedroom workspace and placed him in a professional studio, with production help from Matthew Fink (Nakhane’s Brave Confusion and Shadowclub's Guns and Money). The resulting The Home We Built found him fleshing out his compositions with string sections, programmed synths and snare drums, all without losing the emotional power of his acoustic-based music. Subsequent nominations at the 2014 South African Music awards proved that his hard work paid off.
