Scott Matthews springs from the same gene pool as Robert Plant, i.e. he's from Wolverhampton! He's part Ry Cooder, part Elliott Smith, part John Martyn, part Eddie Vedder and is the most exciting new talent to have emerged from the Black Country in ages.
Click here to watch the awesome new video from Scott Matthews for his new single "Elusive".
He supported Foo Fighters in their pre-Hyde Park warm-up shows and Zane Lowe, Mark Radcliffe and Jo Whiley have been raving about his single "Elusive". He recorded his debut album 'Passing Stranger', a beautiful modern fusion of bluesy folk, last year in Artisan Studios in Birmingham. The album was produced by Scott and Jon Cotton and mastered by Ray Staff (who cut his teeth on 'Physical Graffiti', 'Hunky Dory' and 'Ziggy Stardust'). "Passing Stranger" will be released on Island Records.
