A man. A guitar. And a song. It sounds simple, doesn’t it? And it is.
The ghosts of Paul Simon, Tim Buckley, Nick Drake and John Martyn loom large on a collection that ranks alongside work by some of the world’s great singer-songwriters. On his seventh record, Matthews has created songs that are breathtaking in their beauty and audacious in their simplicity
The richness in Matthews’ new work comes from subtle playing and mellifluous melodies. He has improved again. He has become a master of his craft; a man who can play like Bert Jansch, sing like an angel and write songs that Joni Mitchell might admire.
Scott says . . .
I’m excited to be exposing a new kind of light on brand new songs for what will be my seventh studio record. I’m equally excited at the prospect of touring again for a very special set of shows in May 2020 and to give fans a chance to hear the new material prior to its official release, which is scheduled for Autumn 2020. I hope you can join me as I venture into a new world . . .
