Matheus Prado

Matheus Prado was born in Brazil and with nine years old he started playing piano.

After his family moved to Europe, he learnt other instruments, but one of them touched him in a different way, the Bass.

He had one of the best electric bass players as a first tutor, Fernando Lamadrid. After few months studying with Fernando, Matheus started gigging with local bands.

A year after playing electric bass, Matheus started going to jazz concerts and the sound of the double fascinated him. He spent all his savings in double bass, student model. In order to improve his technique and knowledge of the instrument he took lessons with all the double bass players in Seville, and also traveled to other cities to meet other bass players.

Matheus played with many artists in important festivals, such as Brecon Jazz Festival (UK), Autumn in Green (Spain), Jazz Minde (Portugal), Gibraleon International Jazz Festival (Spain), Don Benito Blues Festival (Spain), FIMEC (Spain), …

Now he finished his Master Degree in the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff, and work as session musician in the UK and Europe. He also is running his own projects, such as Matheus Prado Septet or the LRS.

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!
