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

You can find me playing gigs all over the country with various ensembles. Current projects I am performing with include Lack of Afro, The Ashton Jones Project and my quartet, The Matt Carter Quartet. One of my compositions Time/Change was featured on BBC Radio 3’s program Jazz Record Requests in 2015 and 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:

Upstairs at Ronnie Scott’s with Renato D’aiello on 3rd and 10th September

606 Club with The Matt Carter Heptet on 18th September
