Being Ard Matthews

Singer, songwriter, and front man of Transport & Shuttles Available South African multi-platinum selling band Just Jinjer, ARD Matthews has been a household name and personality locally and internationally since 1996. ARD released his second solo album in 2019 called ‘Impossible Machines’. And promptly scooped up a South African Music Award (SAMA) for best Alternative Album, cementing his place in the SA music landscape in his solo capacity.

Since the beginning of South Africa’s Coronavirus lockdown, ARD has been committed to raising funds for those most in need with his live stream rooftop series called the ‘Play it Forward’ where, to date he has assisted in raising hundreds of thousands of Rands for people and animals who are not in a position to help themselves through the crisis.

In January of 2020, ARD bought a 66ft wooden pirate sailing vessel, built by the SA Navy, called the Howard Davis and promptly dubbed her ‘The Impossible Machine’ to be an eponymous, tongue-in-cheek extension of his most recent solo work. His intention is to sail her around the world, all the way collaborating and spreading a message of peace and good will. She will also carry a strong environmental awareness with her wherever she may go.
