Fast Five: Jake Mattison



When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

I began making music when I was in my late teens, I’m always pondering different careers.

How would you describe your music?

I would hate to describe it but it has it’s roots in Soul and Folk and I have an obsession with delays and reverb.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

Single out last year and my 1st EP Golden Friend has just been released, plenty of touring before the next EP is released at the end of the summer.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

I would like to sing needle of death with Bert Jansch playing guitar because it’s the most recent song I’ve listened to that has stopped me dead.

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

What’s Going On because it is the ultimate ‘fuck you’ record and a beautiful stream of consciousness.
