Matthew Joy

Matthew Joy, has been an active performer and composer for decades recording and performing in Boston, New York and Nashville as well as touring the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Europe. His guitar playing and composing styles come from a cross-breeding of jazz, folk, Latin and classical music wherein Matthew maintains a personal style that functions as an equilibrium between avant-garde and structure, primitive and scholarly, historical and modernity. Matthew is currently based in West Palm Beach, Florida. He works as a freelance editor and composer/arranger for various FJH Company's guitar pedagogy selections. You can find him performing at venues including the Kravis Center, Norton Museum of Art, DADA, Voltaire’s as well as private functions and events.

In addition to performing and composing, Matthew is a veteran music educator. He is an adjunct professor at Florida Atlantic University and maintains a roster of private students.

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!
