Scott Matthews

Biography

“Think of Matthews as the love child of Neil Finn, Thom Yorke, and Jeff Buckley, with a good old dash of psychedelia, Eastern influences, a bit of folk, and some fantastically mysterious lyrics, and you’d be about there. Unsurprisingly, he’s created something truly fantastic here.” BBC Music

 

 

Guild artist Scott Matthews (born 1976), is a singer/songwriter from Wolverhampton, England. 

His first album Passing Stranger was released on 13 March 2006 on San Remo Records before being re-released on Island Records later in the year. Janice Long was the first of the BBC DJs to play his music. Soon, tracks from Passing Stranger were also being played by Mark Radcliffe and Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2. In April, Scott played sessions on BBC Radio 2 & BBC 6 Music. 

Matthews' first single "Elusive" was released in September. The single received much airplay from BBC Radio DJs Jo Whiley, Dermot O'Leary, and Zane Lowe. Between 7–10 August, Lowe played "Elusive" once each night as his chosen Single of the Week. Matthews also visited the station to perform "Elusive" and other songs from the album in May and August 2006. In May 2007, he won the Ivor Novello Award for "Best Song Musically and Lyrically" for "Elusive".

Scott has not only embarked on a number of sell-out headline tours, but has also been fortunate enough to tour with some of the world's most respected artists including, Foo Fighters, Snow Patrol, Rufus Wainwright, Tori Amos and Robert Plant, who made a rare guest appearance on Scott's second album 'Elsewhere', singing a duet on the haunting '12 Harps'.

Matthews notes amongst his influences a number of artists, most notably The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Joni Mitchell and Marc Bolan. Scott is also a truly gifted guitarist and has a deep history with Guild guitars utilising many tunings throughout his song writing.

His latest album, What the Night Delivers, was produced by Passing Stranger producer Jon Cotton.
