Playing a repertoire entirely comprised of originals by members of the band, the MATTHEW READ TRIO brings together three extremely like-minded musicians in a guitar trio setting. Drawing influence from a multitude of styles including jazz, folk, country, spirituals, improvised music and both European and American church musics, the trio create an exciting new soundscape of melody driven music.

Benedict Wood – guitar
Arthur Newell – drums
