Andrew Matthews, aged 18, is an exciting, versatile guitarist & singer-songwriter from Portland, Oregon. His musicianship was first nurtured by Portland’s renowned blues community and by virtuoso guitarist Jennifer Batten as her student.
Andrew’s rising talent was discovered in 2020 by legendary rock and roll photographer, Robert M. Knight. For 2021, he was accepted into the PRS Guitars Pulse Artist program. Early in 2022, he signed an artist development deal with Lightning In A Bottle Records and was interviewed by the Cascade Blues Organization.
The Andrew Matthews Band‘s debut Waterfront Blues Festival performance will feature songs from their summer 2022 planned album release. The band will also be joined by special guest Brady Goss on keyboard.
