Biography

Gerschweyn Matthews is a South African Remodernist Singer - Songwriter, Composer and Screen Writer. A digital pre - rendition of his debut album, “Die Probleem met Picasso” is out now on Itunes, Amazon, CDbaby and a host of other online distributors. Short Film “Die Probleem met Picasso - End Cycle” is set for screening at a select few Indie Film Festivals in the USA and abroad later in the 2010.

Gerschweyn was born and raised in a small Cape Town village called Firgrove and grew up with his mother and father; Margaret and Hubert Matthews and 4 brothers and sisters; Avory, Jessica, Larry and Cammi-Ann. The family is of Dutch, African, Irish and Malaysian decent. Gerschweyn speaks and sings in Afrikaans (a Dutch and dialect), Dutch and English. Gerschweyn started playing the piano at age 9 and excelled in the instrument at school after a music education teacher advised the family on the matter of Gerschweyn’s promising talent.

In Apartheid South Africa, the family could not afford a piano during Gerschweyn’s primary tutelage. The determent 9 year old took to a pile of dirt in the back of the family house. He drew piano keys in sand so as to practice his prescribed work. Gerschweyn sang regularly at school and church events ( a gift he inherited from his grand father John and his father Hubert; both accomplished singers and songwriters).

    Ok, maybe they are not related but you surely are not implying that Gerschweyn Matthews' music is inferior to Dave Matthews'. This kid writes lyrics and melodies about topics far beyond his years. Though his songs are a bit hard to get into, once you leave behind silly conventions on what music is about you truly feel for Gerschweyn's art. It is different, sure! But it's incredibly beautiful as well. And the voice!... he sounds like some being from another planet! Much better then the pipes on Dave!!!
