Biography

Artist Name: St. Matthew

Birth Name: Matthew Golding

Birth Place and Date: April 6th


Official Bio
Matthew Golding, was the last of five children born to Joseph and Beverley Golding in Kingston, Jamaica. His father was a soldier so he grew up on an army base. At the age of thirteen his father retired and his family moved to Portmore, St. Catherine. As a child, Matthew was drawn to music with an innate desire to perform and entertain.

“My mother was a drama teacher and she wrote a lot of plays and still writes to this day,” says Matthew, “Maybe that’s why I am so dramatic. She is an on fire Christian and that’s where I get my Christian roots. My Father was a soldier and that’s why I am so militant.”

Matthew’s greatest inspiration growing up was his older brother Mark (aka RAMROD), who was into deejaying and rapping. Following Mark’s footsteps, in 1992, Matthew attended St. Georges College where he wrote his first rap lyrics while in the eighth grade. As his lyrical skills continued to develop, he took up the name “Suicide”, for he was notorious for his crazy ways.

From 1996 to 2001, Matthew was part of a group called the Marawdaz. During that time he flipped his style from hip-hop to dancehall. As he was enjoying the growth of his secular career, all the attributes that typically accompany this type of lifestyle were prevalent; girls and a crazy party life. Yet with all that, there was one area of his life that he had not conquered; the unexplainable bleakness and profound emptiness within his soul that he couldn’t drink, smoke or manage to chase away.
