Question:
Morje, Matti! :) Only few moments ago i've found out that your new song aired on June 15th at Agora Radio. It's sad i didn't hear it. But the news about new song gives hope that soon you'll release a new album. Is it true? And when will it be released?

Answer:
True. I´ll put the record out next year.

Moikka Matthau Onko sulla suunniteltu jotain Tammerfestarille? Käyn joka kesä Tampereelle festareille ja tiedän, että tavallisesti joku pieni klubi löytyy, jossa ootte soittamasa festarin aikana... Toivottavasti, näen sinut siellä.

Question:
I've noticed that you've sung lots of different kinds of songs from different genres. (The sign of a true music lover) I saw a youtube video where you covered Frank Sinatra. Is it just certain songs or do whole genres/types of music that appeal to you?

Answer:
I do a lot of covers when I´m out there on my own because a lot of times people don´t know who I am. And I´m there to entertain. Depending on the audience,
I mostly play covers (and a few originals here and there ...) Sometimes I only play originals - Matthau´s Acoustic Sauna (Originals & Covers). Anyway, I´ve never played a song I´m not fond of - I like it that way.
I like songs... I may play a Bangles song and I may play a Type O Negative song.

Question:
Matthau, Are you your own worst critic? That is to say, are you ever satisfied with your work? I once read that Jimi Hendrix was never satisfied with his work and that he was very critical of himself. That is the context in which I'm asking this question. Especially, upon reading your reply about music being both a blessing and a curse.

Answer:
Hi Rose Red Pa,
I have been satisfied with what I´ve done on a song or a record, although these days I rarely know what I want till it´s audible and, then again, when I know what I want I´ll probably hate it the day after... but I can live with it ;) In my twenties I was extremely critical... and now... well, now I´m just confused. Yes, it´s a blessing...

or a curse.

"I am a little bit disappointed by the last album. It's pretty weak compared to the others. It would be nice if you could write more authentic stuff for the next one. Written by Beep 16.01.13" Thx for speaking it out loud :). I always liked your music and the first two albums (the first one I find really authentic, the second has a lot of ear catcher songs and makes you shake your legs :)) but the last is...weak compared to the others. it's like you don't wanna talk about your feelings anymore. So you turned to stuff that is not really personal what usually creates the authenticity and reaches people's hearts (at least it appears to me like this). It sounds rather superficial. But maybe that happens when someone locks emotions inside himself.

Answer:
I really appreciate this kind of honest feedback... In some ways I agree and in some ways I don´t. Anyway, I´m currently working on new material and like I said this kinda stuff really matters and helps. Thank you.

Question:
Hey Matty, any new music coming out soon? I'm in the US so the only way I can hear your music is through albums, since you guys don't upload singles to YouTube. Can you give me an approximate period of time in which I can expect some more kickass music? Thanks :D

Answer:
I don´t have a recording contract at the moment so I really don´t know but I am working on new material - some twenty songs and I hope to find a way to put them out this year. Thanks. M

Stumbled upon the german entry and thought I'd help you out. There you go: Question: @matthau: I am sorry my english is very bad... always problems with the grammer... uhh... and more... What I wanted to say: you're vocal tune (timbre) is unique.. the songs you've written and sang can't find equals in the music business.. they're special... well, I've mentioned the voice... such an important aspect... I've heard you live... in Berlin... yeah, the songs pleased the ear... I know you play gigs here'n' there, mostly in Finland.. that's great... I wish you would.. well, share your "gift", play more gigs... abroad... find your way and people will listen to you... so much potential should not be spoiled... written by marquise 25.01.13

@matthau: I am sorry my english is very bad...always problems with the grammar..uhhh...and more ...was ich sagen will: du hast eine einmalige Stimmfarbe..Songs die aus deiner Feder stammen und von dir selbst gesungen werden, finden in der Musikwelt keines Gleichen...sind sozusagen einmalig....nun ja ich erwähnte die Stimme...ein ganz wichtiger Aspekt...hab dich Live singen gehört.. in Berlin....ja, alle Songs waren gut für das Ohr...ich weiß du spielst hier und da, meistens in Finnland...das ist toll...ich wünschte du würdest ...naja deine "Gabe " weitergeben, mehr Konzerte geben..außerhalb Finnlands...finde einen Weg und man hört dir zu...soviel Potential sollte nicht vergeudet werden ....

Written by Beep 16.01.13
Answer:
Thank you for honest criticism... Now you got my attention ;) ... What do you mean by more authentic? Personally, I agree with you. I do like the album but it´s not 10... maybe 6+ or 7.
