MATT JOE GOW & KERRYN FIELDS “YOUR HEART OF GOLD” SINGLE RELEASE - 15TH JULY 2023
"Your Heart of Gold" is the hook-laden debut single from Matt Joe Gow & Kerryn Fields from their forthcoming album, due for release in 2024. The song finds the duo trading verses over a bevy of acoustic instruments, where a golden sunset frames the troubadours out on the open road where a sense of nostalgia runs deep between them. "Sun-drenched Americana with deep old-time country roots" - Red Raven News “With you I feel like a child again Like when the rain came down in the summertime Bare Feet on warm pavement And all the hope in my heart” With multiple awards to their names and thousands of miles between them, Matt Joe Gow & Kerryn Fields are bonafide masters of their craft, having discovered a natural chemistry as performers, the union of their songwriting enables them to explore new depths in their music. 3 X FINALISTS FOR THE MLT NZ SONGWRITING AWARD / NZ COUNTRY MUSIC HONOURS 2023 Their ragged edge comes steeped in Alt-Country influences, building their sound around acoustic instruments and honest songwriting while devouring records from Bob Dylan, Gillian Welch, Tracy Chapman, Grant Lee Phillips, Dave Dobbyn and Neil Finn. Matt Joe Gow grew up in Dunedin in the South Island of New Zealand, a place with bad weather and good music, meanwhile Kerryn Fields was raised in the North Island with one hand on guitar and the other firmly upon her heart. A kindred connection with their homeland brings an emotive strength to their music and gives their songs a sense of place and purpose. "The combined talents of both these two artists is really a perfect match and the chance to see them performing together should not be missed" - Myles O'Neil-Shaw, PBS FM "As individual artists they are distinct from each other musically and lyrically, but together they have found a way to meet and create something new" - Sunburnt Country Music “There is no excuse for not seeing them play” - Kev Rowland, Muzic.net.nz
