Matt Stevens

Matt Stevens is a musician and composer from North London. An instrumental artist, he uses an acoustic guitar and a sampler to create multi layered tracks live. This is often called Live Looping. His music is compared with artists as diverse as John Mclaughlin, Johnny Marr and Sigur Ros. He plays live all over the UK.

He has composed for short films(including the award winning Daddys Little Helper) and his live work is often compared to watching a one man guitar orchestra or wall of sound.

He performs to people from all over the world using Ustream.TV

”Matt Stevens, looping guitar specialist and “One man wall of sound” .Prepare to be blasted away by incredible Spanish, Jazz and Rock rhythms with leads that are out of this world” - Spratton Folk Festival

“Even though that record is a must-buy for anyone with an interest in acoustic Guitar music, his regular online concerts or live performances are just as intoxicating. Let there be no doubt about it, after all: Matt Stevens may have some delicious studio cuts on offer, but the stage is still the best place to appreciate this both experimental and deadly catchy music.”
