ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
They say all that glitters isn’t gold. Vancouver singer, songwriter and musician Matthew Walko begs to differ.

Mingling together the succulence of sixties soul, surf pop and retro rock ‘n’ roll, his music is the stuff sandy beaches, Wayfarers and shiny ‘64 Mustang convertibles are made of, yet with a decidedly modern sparkle. And nowhere is this inspired sound more evident than on his freshly pressed EP, Glitter ‘n’ Gold.

Recorded at Coquitlam’s Tape Studio and co-produced with Ryan Worsley (Maplewood Lane, Dawntreader, The Pale, Maclean), the four-song release was made fast and fresh—just like the old ’45s—and oozes cheeky beats and suave melodies. Horn-infused, the title track swaggers an irreverent motown romp through an evening of bank robbery. Marrying new school electronic and old school beach bop, “He Said, She Said (Techno Superstar)” tells a tight lyrical tale of one musician hoping to make it big. The unabashed love song of the bunch, “Now That I Found You” channels early crooners and sets the stage for the closing track, “Bonnie & Clyde,” a cello-tinged ballad on sun-setting love. Buffed and ready for a ride with the top down, Glitter ‘n’ Gold is summer personified.

No stranger to the music scene, 24-year-old Matthew Walko already has eight years of writing and performing under his vintage leather belt. His last contribution was the well-received album Behave, recorded with his former band, Edmund. Named one of the Top 5 Bands in BC by The Province in 2007, Matthew has played to capacity crowds at Vancouver indie music haunts The Backstage Lounge, The Railway, The Roxy and The Media Club as well as interior BC and Washington State. Onstage, backed by a smoking five piece band, Walko hones his pop-craft and irresistibly charming stage presence, bringing him to where he is today; a savvy young talent with a bright ‘n’ shiny future.

Not one to rest on his laurels or his Beatle boots, Walko just released a video for title track Glitter ‘n’ Gold and is working on a fellow up EP this fall. Not unlike the sixties icons that inspire him, the next record will be just as short ‘n’ sassy as the first, continuing to tantalize music lovers with sharp, swinging singles that reference the past, but boldly rock the present.
