Chip Matthews is the perfect example of a person working in an industry he loves. During the day he is the receptionist and administration assistant for MAINZ in Auckland and in his spare time he lives and breathes music.
As an in-demand Bass player he currently plays for Anika Moa, HomeBrew and Tyra Hammond. He has also played live or in studio with musicians like Ladi6, Opensouls, King Kapisi, Scribe and Sola Rosa. If that is not enough he is also a part-time DJ and host of Base FM’s breakfast show.
Chip can give students “real life” advice about working as a musician. He says if you have to have a job it is so much more rewarding when it is in a field that you are passionate about. If he is not at MAINZ he is probably either gigging or working as a DJ.
