Matt Chandler 

Matt has worked with a diverse range of artists including Youth (Killing Joke, The Orb), Arno Carstens, Fake?, Poly Styrene and Ozark Henry. He has also played with many of Britain’s major jazz artists such as Dave O Higgins, Alan Barnes, Dennis Rollins and Tony Kofi
His innovative style is supported by a career that has spanned genres from jazz to punk, folk to electronica.

Based in London, Matt’s current projects include jazz group The Matt Chandler Trio with Ross Stanley on Hammond Organ and Eric Ford on drums, and electro-funk band Pest who regularly play live shows around London and have releases on Ninja Tune records.
At present Matt is promoting his 3rd album,” Astrometrics” released on 33 Jazz Records.

“I wanted to do an album that was in keeping with the organ trio tradition but with a newer take on it and with material that was not composition heavy, where the music and the players just “get down to it”. The material, by design, is simplistic. It’s really a celebration of our skills and how are skills work together. The album title is in keeping with this theme as it is an anagram of our names.”
Matt Chandler
