Matt CoweMatt Cowe is a guitarist based in South Cumbria but originally from down south.

His guitar playing is influenced by many different musicians from a vaguely classical upbringing through pop, heavy rock, prog, jazz, gypsy jazz, country picking, avant garde, minimalism, folk, ska, swing, classical again and so on.

He was mainly self taught until much later when he took a degree in music at Middlesex University under the tuition of the great Stuart Hall (multi instrumentalist and all round brilliant musician). There he experimented with all sorts of different musics.

He likes to divide his playing between lots of different styles, very happy playing minimalist noises one minute and then Chet Atkins or Bach the next.
