Matt Carter
Matt himself is no stranger to Peggy's, having played there twice before with his octet, and also with 'Three's Up' organ trio. He cut his teeth as a player in and around his home in Devon before leaving for the Royal Academy of Music in London. There, he met many of his current band members.

He's spent his time working as a pianist, composer, and writer, with many arrangements and compositions to his credit. His writing has been compared to Marty Paich, and he is heavily influenced by US West Coast jazz from the 50's and 60's. So, his compositions are peppered with swinging dynamic solo sections.

Many know Matt for some of his performances with artists such as Wet Wet Wet, Go West, Joss Stone, Ashton Jones, Leigh Coleman, Rosie Frater-Taylor and Myles Sanko.

Matt Carter Octet is one of the most exciting young bands on today's jazz scene. "Exuberant, energetic playing from multi-talented musicians – the shape of British jazz to come!" - Jazz Jurasica. "Ultra-hip, finger clicking arrangements.' - ★★★★ Jazzwise

'Exuberant, energetic playing from multi-talented musicians – the shape of British jazz to come!' – Jazz Jurasica

The Matt Carter Octet is one of the most exciting young bands on today's UK jazz scene. They released their debut album 'Read Between the Lines' in 2023 to critical acclaim, after a successful UK tour in the summer. They've sold out venues across the country, and are looking forward to bringing their music to Peggy's Skylight once more.

'Carter's own piano is as tasteful and neatly phrased as you could wish… ultra-hip, finger clicking arrangements.' – ★★★★ Jazzwise
