Inspired by his belief that the power of the human voice changes lives and the world in incredible
ways, and nominated Jazz FM “Best live performance 2018”, Randolph Matthews is described by
Jazz FM as “Flawless and world class.”
Randolph’s vocal performances span over two decades where he has collaborated with artists
from the jazz, blues and contemporary music scenes such as Mulatu Atstake, Casey Benjamin
(Robert Glasper Experience) and openings for Richard Bona (Pat Metheny) and grammy award
winning jazz legend Herbie Hancock. He has also graced the Royal Courts of Buckingham palace
to perform for Queen Elizabeth II.
Randolph is one of the truly unique and incredible talents in today’s effervescent UK jazz culture.
Influenced by legends such as Bobby McFerrin and Kurt Elling, Randolph’s show is an
international mix of original material, re-works, and audience interactions entwined with life stories
which he tells with pure emotion and humour.
His new album “Untamed” was released in 2018 on BandCamp Spotify and ITunes with an album
tour in November of last year.
