In 2006, Scott released his ground-breaking debut album Passing Stranger, which contained an eclectic mix of styles and featured the world renowned tabla player Sukvinder Singh Namdari, who had played alongside such artists as Ry Cooder and Ravi Shankar. Shortly after, Scott’s first single, Elusive, was released which went on to win the Ivor Novello Award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically in 2007.
Scott Matthews started 2014 with a brand new self-produced album entitled Home Part 1, officially released in November. It will be his fourth studio album. Scott has not only embarked on a number of sell-out headline tours, but has also been fortunate enough to tour with some of the world’s most respected artists, including Foo Fighters, Snow Patrol, Rufus Wainwright, Tori Amos and Robert Plant. His vocal style has been described as ‘ghostly’, ‘haunting’ and ‘hypnotic’, and the opportunity to see and hear him in the intimate surroundings of Cadogan Hall is one not to be missed.
