Matt Schofield is a soulful electric guitarist and singer. His trio, featuring drums and organ, have branded their own unique version of funk, jazz, and blues. Originally from the United Kingdom, he is recognized as one of the most distinctive and innovative British blues guitarists. Schofield was rated in the top ten British blues guitarists of all time by Guitar & Bass Magazine alongside such icons as Eric Clapton and Peter Green and was named “Guitarist of the Year” three times by the British Blues Awards. He was also inducted into the British Blues Awards Hall of Fame. He has shared the stage with everyone from Robben Ford to Buddy Guy and released nine albums since his debut album in 2004, notching top 10 spots on the Billboard Blues Charts.
Schofield’s fluid and melodic playing and iconic tone has inspired legions of guitarists, and a sought-after line of signature instruments and equipment including a Two-Rock Matt Schofield amplifier.
Ever impressive is Schofield live. From main stages at prestigious festivals such as Montreal and North Sea Jazz, to packed houses in legendary clubs like New York’s Iridium or London’s 100 Club, his ability to connect with audiences immediately and profoundly is unforgettable. His authenticity, mastery of guitar, emotive vocals, and improvisational brilliance are brought to life within innovative original compositions.
A renowned musical educator, in 2018 Matt released “Blues Speak”, his highly acclaimed TrueFire instructional series. As a clinician he has taught from Tokyo to Texas and all points in between. He is set to release a new album in 2023.
“In Schofield, the UK has produced the best blues guitarist from any country in decades.”
