About the Artist

BIOGRAPHY

British born and now US-based, Matt Schofield continues to push
the frontiers and reshape the boundaries of the British Blues
tradition. A multi-award winning guitar virtuoso, singer, songwriter,
producer and band leader, after more than 30 years of
performing, and 20 years into his solo career, Schofield's impact
as one of the most influential and distinctive guitarists of his
generation is unquestionable.
Along with a storied career that has taken him and his band to
nearly 30 countries worldwide comes awards, industry and critical
acclaim - three time "British Blues Guitarist of the Year", "British
Blues Album of the Year" and the first guitarist inducted into the
"British Blues Awards Hall of Fame". Mojo Magazine "Blues
Album of the Year"and Guitar & Bass Magazines "Top Ten British
Blues Guitarist of All Time" alongside Eric Clapton and Peter
Green.
Schofield's fluid and melodic playing and iconic tone has inspired
legions of guitarists, and a sought after line of signature
instruments and equipment including a Two-Rock Matt Schofield
amplifier.
What remains ever impressive is Schofield live. From main stages
at prestigious festivals such as Montreal and North Sea Jazz, to
packed houses in legendary 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 within his innovative original compositions.
A renowned musical educator, in 2018 Matt released “Blues
Speak”, his highly acclaimed TrueFire instructional series. As a
clinician he has taught from Tokyo to Texas and all points in
between.
Matt’s upcoming record reunites him with his original and much
loved organ trio line-up, to mark the 20th anniversary of the album
and band that launched his solo career.
