Matthew Charles Heulitt

Matthew Charles Heulitt recently relocated to Pittsburgh PA after living and working in the bay area for 25 years. He's currently working with bass player Tony Grey and drummer David Throckmorton playing jazz fusion.  His musical range and skills lead him to playing funk with Zigaboo, African folk music with Vusi, fusion/pop/rock with Narada, Zappa-esque art rock with MoeTar, and a wide range of instrumental jazz and lush ambient home productions that defy categorization but always deliver a rich feeling. MCH has a Bachelors of Music and attended DePaul University, Wayne State University, and The University of Miami. Matthew is an experienced and thoughtful teacher of guitar, practice, and patience.

"Matthew Charles Heulitt is clearly a musician with an open mind and one who refuses to be restricted by the limits of simplistic categorization. Possessing a deep knowledge and respect for the music of the past, Heulitt's focus is, nevertheless, very much forward-looking." Ian Patterson allaboutjazz.com "Heulitt represents a scarce breed of guitarist these days" - Matt Blackett Guitar Player Magazine
