Matt Clark

Born:

Matt Clark is a guitarist/composer from Brighton, England. His career has spanned 35 years, encompassing genres as broad as jazz and blues, alternative, experimental and electronic music. The past year of COVID and lockdown has been both testing and inspiring. Lack of live music and in-person collaboration has meant re-thinking musical output. Matt is currently working under the moniker Matt Clark Three: “Jazz influenced grooves. Mostly instrumental. Combining a love of lo-fi loops and samples, avant-garde jazz and influenced by the contemporary jazz scenes of New York and Chicago…” Originally conceived as a solo project, Matt is about to release a new album “One From Brooklyn” which, whilst primarily a solo effort, also includes collaborations with bassist Mark Wilson (Caaw, Underhound) and drummer Darren Beckett (Madeleine Peyroux, Lauren Hill) “The overall effect creates a dynamic sonic quality, as if a laid-back street-level musical trio were performing their own structured and improvised material but also incorporating the ephemeral swell of sounds around them…” - Jordan Penney on AllAboutJazz.com Matt began by playing bass guitar in school band Southern Tongue Business in the late 1980s, and played in various bands during his teens in and around the Midlands

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
