Scott Mathews feature - Talking outside the Cavern Club


Outside at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, Scott Mathews talks music.

We first featured Scott many years back, way back, probably more than ten years back so it was great to hear that he was over in the UK and we managed to track him down to Liverpool and Russell Cottier called him and did a rather unusal phone interview!


Scott is very much involved with emerging artists and much more can be found on his website here.
