New Zealand born Jazz multiinstrumentalist and composer Matthew Mitchell grew up surrounded by the traditional music of the Pacific islands, reggae, punk and classical music. A late comer to Jazz guitar, Matthew began playing at the age of seventeen, but by his twenty-third birthday he had completed a degree in performance music, recorded his first large ensemble Album and a trio record, toured and performed with many of Australasia’s leading Jazz innovators and become a teacher at the Wellington University School of music.
Two years later he moved to London, quickly finding his feet and collaborating with many of the United Kingdom's top names. He quickly expanded into Europe, Touring with Jazz and electronic artists with equal frequency.
