Scott Matthews at Komedia in Bath on 10th October 2018Posted on: 22 Aug 2018
Ivor Novello-winning songwriter Scott Matthews is playing Bath’s Komedia on 10th October!
Scott Matthews first earned critical acclaim with his first single ‘Elusive,’ back in 2007. Elusive’s innovative compounding of folk undertones, Eastern-inspired songwriting and, whirling, emotive lyrics stamped Matthews’ spot on the music scene.
Since, Matthews has toured with the likes of Robert Plant, Foo Fighters and Tori Amos, selling-out international tours and curating an expertly crafted backlog of folk/soft rock sound. This autumn, Matthews returns with his sixth studio album, The Great Untold, and a fifteen-date tour across the UK.
Mostly acoustic, The Great Untold was created last winter at Matthews’ home; a quiet, reflective but abounding release. Accumulating similar guitar tones as his first ever release, the album is stripped back but assured. Though cultivating a sort of reflective sadness, its underpinned by an ethereal optimism; reflected through its controlled crescendos in sound and relatable, lyrical poetry.
Matthews' performance will be supported by fellow songwriter Ady Johnson, who has had large support from BBC 6 Music over the years.
