Matthews will be closing his month long tour at The Glee Club in Nottingham on Sunday April 28th.
‘Roadtesting’ songs from his fourth studio album, Matthews will be playing an ‘intimate’ gig in The Glee’s Studio Room – supported by Folk singer/songwriter, Katherine Priddy.
Scott Matthews released his debut album, ‘Passing Stranger’, in 2006 – winning the Ivor Novello ‘Best Song Musically & Lyrically’ Award for the LP’s first single, ‘Elusive’.
Promulgated by several Radio One pundits, ‘Elusive’ received significant national airplay; further pushing both ‘Passing Stranger’ and Matthews into an early limelight, whilst opening up European festival and tour circuits.
Matthews’ soft vocals over stripped back Folk Rock, with elements of Latin percussion, Americana and multi instrumental accompaniment – have built the Wolverhampton based singer/songwriter and strong global following.
Mainly produced by Jon Cotton, a composer and string arranger who has scored for several film and TV productions, Matthew’s carries a cinematic feel on much of his studio based releases.
Subtle accompaniments, incidental sound bytes, interludes and soft layering of vocals and string have defined much of Matthew’s studio sound.
However his second studio album, ‘Elsewhere’, was recorded at Wolverhampton’s Magic Garden Studios by Gavin Monaghan – and featured Led Zeppelin lead singer, Robert Plant
Matthew’s fourth studio album, to be released later in 2013, is reportedly being recorded at the artist’s home in Wolverhampton – with Jon Cotton back as producer.
Jon Cotton has also worked with Broadcast, Carina Round, Jo Hamilton and Sweet Billy Pilgrim.
