Award winning contemporary jazz pianist, Matthew Bourne is a vital new voice on the scene. Sharp witted, highly talented and with distinctly anarchic tendencies. With a reputation as a fearlessly unpredictable pianist and composer, Matthew is a passionate explorer of sound, possessed of a burning desire to make music on anything old, broken or infirm.
