Biography

Queensland, Australia (2007 – present)

Scott Matthew is a vocalist and lyricist born in Queensland, Australia, who currently resides in New York City. The popularity of Shortbus by director John Cameron Mitchell has brought Matthew to the attention of a larger audience as Matthew’s music is featured extensively in the movie soundtrack. He also acted in the movie, playing his songs for the eclectic Shortbus club’s patrons.

He is perhaps most known for his vocal performances for Yoko Kanno for her Cowboy Bebop: Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex soundtracks. However, he is also known amongst Morrissey fans by being part of the former band Elva Snow which boasted both Matthew’s vocals and ex-Morrissey member Spencer Cobrin as drummer and composer.

His albums are Scott Matthew (album) (2007), Silent Nights EP (2008) and There Is An Ocean That Divides (2009).

Also to note: Matthew is sometimes credited as “Scotty Matthew”, and is occasionally miscredited as having the last name Matthews, and as such is not to be confused with the British-born singer/songwriter Scott Matthews.
