Free Download: Scott Matthews "Elusive"

Arjanwrites_smatthews

Get a guilt-free MP3 of Scott Matthews' impressive debut single "Elusive" that was released on iTunes in the U.S. last week. It is a subtle and intense, sweet and powerful, well-crafted and incredibly moving tune. This one will wake up all of your senses. It has a folky crunch to it and it might take you a couple of spins to fall in love with it. But if you do, it will be head over heels. I promise.

Fans of artists like Jose Gonzalez, Jeff Buckley and Nick Drake in particular will be in for a treat.

Hailing from Wolverhampton, England, Matthews started playing the guitar at age 7 when his father bought him a Kapok acoustic guitar. The singer/songwriter was inspired by artists like Joni Mitchell, Marc Bolan and Bob Dylan. After he finished art college, he concentrated on being a full-time musician and writing his own music. His bedroom recordings eventually led a demo that became his debut album "Passing Stranger," which was released in the U.K. last October 2006. "Passing Stranger" will be out in the U.S. on September 11. An iTunes release is scheduled for August 14.

"Elusive" was first released in the U.K. back in the summer of 2006. Since then, the song has slowly but surely built momentum among music lovers that eventually led to airplay on BCC Radio 1 and 2. Matthews was awarded the coveted Ivor Novello Award for "Best Song Both Musically and Lyrically" in May and joined the ranks of The Feeling, Madonna and Amy Winehouse who won in other categories.

No Sam. That was Scott Matthew, who is American. This guy is British. Very confusing indeed!
