Sunday, July 20
Mascot Label Group / Provogue are delighted to announce the release of the new album, ‘Far As I Can See’, from guitarist, singer, songwriter and producer Matt Schofield, released February 2014 [Cat. No. PRD 7416 2]. Schofield is lauded as the British blues guitarist of current times. Guitarist magazine said, “There isn’t a better British blues guitarist playing currently”. With his first release for Provogue, Schofield finds himself as representative for the long tradition of British Blues on the ultimate blues guitar label, and gaining a home amongst his peers - the world's greatest contemporary blues players.
The Schofield story is exploding internationally; the world is sitting up and taking note. Back from another well-received US tour, Schofield is expanding his borders. The LA Times stated, “In Schofield, the UK has produced the best blues guitarist from any country in decades. Head and shoulders above the herd.” Vintage Guitar magazine said, “The best of his generation’s European blues players. His feel for the music is incredible. His playing is so interesting that latching onto his records will reward any guitarist.”
