Jasmine Rodgers will be opening the show for Scott Matthews on his Autumn tour in September, "John Martyn's true musical heir, Wolverhampton-born Scott Matthews' studio albums have always featured an array of top-flight musicians, Robert Plant among them. Expanding from the largely acoustic Passing Stranger to a fuller sound, his early live work was always about just him and a guitar, accentuating the blues veining his folk inclinations. For The Great Untold, his sixth, he's gone back to that basic approach, recording the ten tracks at home and in various rural churches. There is no orchestration, no layered instrumentation, just, for the most part, sparse, minimal piano and acoustic guitar accompaniment and that glorious grainy, otherworldly falsetto weaving a pervasive atmosphere throughout what he describes as a lot of soul searching, but also addressing universal concerns and truths."
