Oli Matthews Band

Oli Matthews Band

Oli Matthews is a UK Folk-Funk instrumentalist and tunesmith, writing gripping melodies, punchy brass sections and funky bass lines, delivered with an energetic vibe often compared to artists such as Trombone Shorty, Elephant Sessions and Peatbog Faeries. He writes his music, crafting together his folk roots heritage, with his passion for jazz funk brass riffs and adventurous bass lines, bringing the excitement of his music to life on stage seamlessly changing between Soprano Sax and Melodeon. His debut EP ‘Summit’, released last year highlights his seamless mix of musical styles, blending folk melodies with jazz funk grooves. His personal career highlights include festival performances at Glastonbury festival and worldwide tours across Canada and Europe, drawing his inspiration from Snarky Puppy, James Brown, Bellowhead and Salsa Celtica, in order to develop his unique sound. The band has been created as late-night festival party line up that can keep the crowds dancing into the small hours to these energising tunes!
