Though he holds a British passport and is an inductee of the British Blues Hall of Fame, Matt Schofield has been making his mark globally as one of the top players in the new class of six string wunderkinds. The Los Angeles Daily News wrote, “In Schofield, the UK has produced the best Blues guitarist from any country in decades … head and shoulders above the herd”; while Guitar & Bass Magazine rated him in the Top 10 British blues guitarists of all time, ranking him with icons Eric Clapton and Peter Green.

Born in the industrial city of Manchester and raised among the rolling hills and locked in time Cotswolds, Schofield began playing guitar at the age of 12. “My dad relocated to America, but before he left he gave me a BB King video,” Matt says. “I watched it before school every day; it was three or four tracks from a concert. Later, when I was in California with my father, he showed me BB King with Albert Collins and Stevie Ray Vaughan on video.” He's been playing the blues ever since.

At age 18 Matt left the countryside and moved to London. There, as a sideman, he was able to hone his skills by backing a great variety of experienced and well known artists of the British Blues scene, visiting American artists, as well start touring internationally. The introspective, well read (lover of science, history and philosophy) and passionate Schofield said, “this enabled me to stay close to my roots while learning my trade and exploring a variety of musical frontiers.”
