From the confinements of four bedroom walls in the West Midlands, Scott Matthews produced the music that made him the first artist to be signed to record label San Remo Records in 2004. As a Wolverhampton-born singer/songwriter Scott has captivated audiences across the Midlands and beyond. On the 2nd of October 2006 he released his debut album Passing Stranger

At seven years old Matthews aquired his first guitar, a junior-sized ‘Kapok’ acoustic (which he still has), although things didn’t quite go to plan. It became neglected very early on as the box it came in was shaped like a coffin and therefore scared the hell out of him every time he went near it! For a brief period he moved on to drums, but soon hit his last snare due to the noise factor in the house becoming increasingly unbearable. It all changed when on his eleventh birthday he asked for an electric guitar. His dad duly obliged and brought him a £25 ‘Kay’ guitar complete with a bunch of old records acquired from a relative. Amongst those records was Smash Hits byJimi Hendrix. This rekindled Matthew’s interest in music and he has been playing ever since. 

Matthews’ inspiration has been drawn from iconic musicians such as The BeatlesBob DylanLed ZeppelinJoni MitchellMarc Bolan, and Joe Satriani.
