“MATTHEW STEVENS IS A YOUNG GUITARIST WHO NAVIGATES WITH EASE AMONG JAZZ, INDIE- ROCK AND SOUL. “– THE NEW YORK TIMES

A leading artist of his generation, “Matthew Stevens’ singular style dissolves the demarcation lines between jazz, rock and ambient music”. (Mojo) Steven’s music is “honest and soulful” (Pitchfork) and his latest release PREVERBAL is described as “music (that) advances the ideals of modern jazz”. (NPR)

Matthew Stevens is “a singular talent brimming with a strong identity” (DownBeat) who “navigates with ease among jazz, indie-rock, and soul” (NY Times). With his stellar trio of bassist Vicente Archer and drummer Eric Doob, his debut recording as a leader, Woodwork, showcases his diverse stylistic mastery, at times warm, robust, fluid, and emotive.

Born in Toronto in 1982, one of Stevens’ earliest influences was Jimi Hendrix. After graduating from Berklee College of Music in 2004, Stevens began to show up everywhere, as an essential element of the important new work by strong young artists like Christian Scott, Terri Lyne Carrington,

ERIMAJ, Sean Jones, Walter Smith III, Linda Oh and, notably, Esperanza Spalding, in whose Emily’s D+Evolution project Stevens is key.

His playing has been met with critical acclaim: In 2016 DownBeat Magazine included Stevens in their 25 for the Future issue and placed him in their Annual Critics Poll Rising Star Guitar Category. His performances have been continually lauded in DownBeat Magazine, NPR, PopMatters and others.

Tonight he'll be performing material from his new album 'Preverbal' to a UK audience for the first time. Unmissable.
