Today, Gambles is proud to release his debut album Trust via his own GMBLS imprint. Gambles is currently on tour in Europe with Marques Toliver and will hit North America next week to perform alongside Jagwar Ma at Bardot's School Night in Los Angeles and then he will embark on tour with Those Darlins.
Matthew Daniel Siskin began writing songs as Gambles in August 2012 with no goal or motive other than that the past few years needed addressing, and things that had gone unsaid for too long needed saying. The first song he released publicly was sang in a single take at the Rare Book Room with no words written. That was "Trust," the first song he would post on his tumblr and the same song that Pitchfork somehow found only a few weeks later and presented to the world. Gambles later returned to the Rare Book Room to record the Far From Your Arms EP, which was released via his very own GMBLS imprint distributed by Secretly Canadian. Gambles has now released his debut long-playerTrust via GMBLS.
Gambles is music and people, boiled down, sliced thin, and left to dry; yet it's clear that for Matthew, it's also everything, a life-saving perspective into events that demand to be acknowledged, registered, declared and when ready, left.
