Welcome to my website! I am a pianist originally from Exeter, currently studying jazz piano at The Royal Academy of Music.

My trio, the The Matt Carter trio performs my own compositions as well as jazz standards. One of my compositions Time/Change was featured on BBC Radio 3’s program Jazz Record Requests in 2015. In January 2017, I recorded a live album at St Ives Jazz Club featuring the wonderful vocals of Leigh Coleman. Our next gigs will be on November 2nd at The Illminster Arts Centre, November 16th at The Teignmouth Jazz Festival, and November 17th at The Tucker’s Jazz Club.

Other upcoming highlights include playing at:

Mostly Jazz Festival with Lack of Afro on 7th July

The Pizza Express, Soho with The Steve Taylor Big Band on 15th July

St Ives Jazz Club with The Matt Carter Quintet on 31st July
