Matt Clark; Three is a new, rhythm based jazz project I’m starting. The music takes influence from the burgeoning new jazz scene on both sides of the Atlantic, but also throws a nod to influences as diverse as Krautrock, funk and hip-hop.
It’s a convergence ideas inspired by all the new music I’ve heard over the last couple of years, and aims to be more than just a gigging band. Think events, happenings, art installations, film scores…
It’s early days, but stay tuned for more…
I’m really excited to be working with singer-songwriter Annika Brown on the arrangements and performance of her upcoming album “The Devil’s Storybook”
“[Matt’s] guitar and Annika’s voice… you’ve got some pretty tasty potential there!”

A day out in the country filming a live video for “Time Keeps Rolling” and other songs, ahead of our upcoming gigs at Cecil Sharp House in Camden and Petworth.
Excellent review of Elephant’s Graveyard from Fringe Review – I’m really proud to have been part of this, and the play will now be a full production run next year!
“Billed as a rehearsed reading director David Eaton has managed more in the flexible NVT Studio space. With Kasha Goodenough on production and managing, Vanessa Barrett and Mark Green on seedy costume designs – this is a full costume performance. The overall scarlet/black detail of costumery is carried to Adam Kinkaid’s scarlet/black scene painting. Keith Dawson’s light design is unfussy. Leanne McKenzie’s light and sound operation comes to the fore in balancing the live musicians: Adam Hewitt music director, Becca Huggett singer, guitarist Matthew Clark and Neil Rocks on drums. Marie Ellis deserves notice for voice coaching.”

For those of you that didn’t make the gig at The Con Club, the full set is now up on the Caaw SoundCloud page:
Last Saturday (17th March) saw a fantastic gig supporting The Urban Voodoo Machine at The Con Club in Lewes. Caaw didn’t get a great soundcheck as there wasn’t time, and went on stage almost immediately afterwards, just as the crowd were arriving.
Despite all this, the set went down a storm. Next stop: The Prince Albert, Brighton on 2nd May supporting Th’Legendary Shack Shakers
Thanks to everyone that came and supported us. Here’s footage of “Novayapesnya” from the gig:
Update from the last post, here is a selection from Monday’s rehearsal…
Things are hotting up!
