INTERVIEW: Matt Schofield (Solo, Matt Schofield Trio)

UK-born, US-based artist Matt Schofield is heading to Australia for the very first time for a series of exclusive club shows in November 2022. Schofield, who will perform here with his trio – Jonny Henderson (keyboard/bass) and Evan Jenkins (drums) – is a multi-award winning guitar virtuoso, singer, songwriter, producer and bandleader, plus three times “British Blues Guitar of the Year” and “British Blues Album of the Year” winner, and was the first guitarist inducted into the “British Blues Awards Hall of Fame”. He was also awarded Mojo Magazine’s “Blues Album of the Year” and Guitar & Bass Magazine “The Ten Greatest British Blues Guitarists of All Time” alongside Eric Clapton and Peter Green. But what still remains impressive is Schofield live; his ability to immediately and deeply connect with the audience is unforgettable. And his authenticity, his mastery of the guitar, his moving voice and his genius for improvisation come to life in his innovative original compositions. After more than 30 years of experience and 20 years of solo career, Schofield’s impact as one of the most influential and distinctive guitarists of his generation is unquestionable.

We caught up with Matt to find out what to expect when he arrives on our shores here in November, as well as news on what he’s currently working on. A highly anticipated tour for guitar fans across the country. All dates, venues and ticket links are below.
