Never miss another 'Scott Matthews' show
This event takes place at Union Chapel, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
A Wolverhampton born singer / songwriter, Scott's musical past has seen him experiment with funk, indie, rock and soul, but his solo career has seen him take a more focused route towards folk and blues and he spent most of June 2006 supporting the Foo Fighters on their string of acoustic concerts across the UK.
With influences including The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Joni Mitchell, Marc Bolan and Joe Satriani, his music is often likened to that of American singer/songwriter Jeff Buckley.
Scott Matthews tour dates
Chris Helme, who first rose to prominence as the front man of John Squire's post-Stone Roses band 'The Seahorses' released his brand new solo album on the 27th of August 2012. Still rightfully remembered for the anthemic Britpop classics 'Love Is The Law' and 'Blinded By The Sun' - songs that evoked everything the 90's stood for, the excitement, the culture and the bands that provided a voice in a period of political and social imbalance. Present day societal context may well in fact mirror those times but the man himself, now, appears cut from an entirely different cloth.
Helmes has an enviable back catalogue, bolstered further by his acclaimed works with The Yards, but it's his latest offering The Rookery's knack for melody and imaginative, intricate, three-way guitar interplay that brings each track to such lush, blossoming, climaxes. Add to this Helme's keen ear for arranging and those brooding string passages resonate even more deeply.
