Matthew Mole is set to make this year’s Sappi Mother’s Day Concert memorable.
Music is a big part of his life, this is what he feels towards it: “I’m not the best at speaking, but through music it’s natural. It takes up a lot of my time, it drives me; it makes me who I am.” His shows are known for not only the perfect blend of well-known original hits and new music but also for his romantic and often whimsical story-telling that sweeps audiences along in a personal and entertaining journey.
