Scott Matthews on Sunday 20th May 2018
Scott Matthews' ground-breaking debut album, 'Passing Stranger' earned him serious critical acclaim with its bold mix of folk, rock, blues and Eastern-inspired song-writing, and in 2007 his first single 'Elusive' won the Ivor Novello Award for 'Best Song Musically and Lyrically'. From here Scott went on to perform on a number of international sell-out tours with respected artists such as Bert Jansch, Robert Plant and Alison Kraus, Foo Fighters, Rufus Wainwright and Tori Amos.
Subsequently, Robert Plant came on board for a guest contribution on Scott's follow-up album, 'Elsewhere', and down the line legendary double bassist Danny Thompson joined Scott on his third release 'What The Night Delivers', having encountered each other whilst performing in Joe Boyd's stage production of 'Way To Blue - The Songs of Nick Drake'. The vision for albums four and five were, however, much closer to home with Scott recording 'Home Part 1' in 2014 at the bottom of his garden in his home-built musical abode. This organic means of creating music from his home in the West Midlands inspired Scott to set up his own record label in 2016, 'Shedio Records', on which his new album, 'Home Part 2', was released in 2016.
Scott Matthews will be returning to the West Midlands for a special performance at St Paul's Church Birmingham on May 20th 2018!
