Matt Schofield

Years Performed: 2017

Matt Schofield continues to push the frontiers and reshape the boundaries of the British Blues tradition. Guitar virtuoso, singer, songwriter, producer and band leader. Ten years into his solo career, Schofield’s impact as one of the most influential and distinctive guitarists of his generation is unquestionable.
 
What remains most impressive is Schofield live. From main stages at prestigious festivals such as Montreal or North Sea Jazz, to packed houses in iconic clubs like New York’s Iridium or London’s 100 Club, Schofield’s ability to connect with audiences immediately and profoundly is unforgettable. His authenticity, mastery of guitar, emotive vocals, and improvisational brilliance are brought to life with innovative original compositions, as beautifully captured on the live album “Ten From The Road.”
 
Along with his ever growing fan base from performances around the globe comes awards, industry, peer and critical acclaim – three time British Blues Guitarist of the Year, British Blues Album of the Year (Heads, Tails & Aces – 2010) and the first guitarist inducted into the British Blues Awards Hall of Fame. Mojo Magazine Blues Album of the Year (Anything But Time – 2011) and Guitar & Bass Magazine‘s Top Ten British Blues Guitarist of All Time alongside Eric Clapton and Peter Green.
