LiveWyre - ORIGINAL R'n'B, Jazz and Funk

LiveWyre - ORIGINAL R'n'B, Jazz and Funk

SOULFUL AND ORIGINAL  R'N'B, JAZZ, FUNK AND GROOVE FROM THE TALENTS OF BEN MATTHEWS.

LiveWyre is an original project that was started in 2014 by pianist and composer Ben Matthews.  The goal of this project is to break away from more straight-ahead forms of jazz by incorporating elements from other genres – R’n’B, funk, ambient, fusion, groove and cinematic music.  Much of the music draws influence of musicians who blend genres in their own writing style; the compositional sounds of jazz masters like Pat Metheny, Hiromi Uehara, Robert Glasper (etc) are alluded to throughout the music of the LiveWyre project.  All of these pieces are original works by Ben Matthews, who is accompanied by the powerhouse talents of Joe Southwell (Bass), Laura Corney (sax) and Daniel Gullaci (drums).
