Albany Lore is the solo music project of South African musician Matthew Rightford. As a singer and a saxophonist, he is making sophisti-pop music flooded with influences from jazz, hip-hop, RnB, funk, gqom, indie rock, soul, kwaito/pantsula, house and techno. Having been one of the founders of Cape Town-based music agency called naas (2012-2016), Matthew was also involved in the formation of an online music publication called Platform where he realised his passion for elevating the presence of South African musicians through writing. Albany Lore is the culmination of all these things – his experiences, his learning, his lore – at a time where he’s never been more excited about making music.
