“I grew up playing covers and background music at Cafe Roux. I loved it! Every time I go back to play a full on show there it always feels like home. The audience is always super-receptive, there is always a rad vibe. The level of professional makes Cafe Roux’s shows a highlight! – MATTHEW MOLE

“My songs are inspired by my family, the people that I love. They are a firm base of support and grounding. My Dad told me about a dream that he had where I was running a race. His job was to help me shoot off from the starting blocks. We all have an enormous amount of potential. We need to look to something far bigger than ourselves to give us what it is that we need to walk into that potential and run with it…” shares Matthew Mole on his new album.
