Scott Matthews (born 1976), is a singer/songwriter from Wolverhampton, England.

His first album "Passing Stranger" was released on March 13, 2006. Janice Long was the first of the BBC DJs to play his music. Soon, tracks from "Passing Stranger" were also being played by Mark Radcliffe and Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2. In April, Scott played sessions on BBC Radio 2 & BBC 6 Music.

Matthews' first single "Elusive" was released in September. The single received much airplay from BBC Radio DJs Jo Whiley, Dermot O'Leary, and Zane Lowe. Between August 7-10, Lowe played "Elusive" once each night as his chosen Single of the Week. Matthews also visited the station to perform "Elusive" and other songs from the album in May and August 2006. In May 2007, he won the Ivor Novello Award for "Best Song Musically and Lyrically" for "Elusive".

Matthews notes amongst his influences a number of artists, most notably The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Joni Mitchell, Marc Bolan and Joe Satriani. His music has been likened to that of the American singer Jeff Buckley.

Matthews has toured the UK extensively in support of his album and appeared in support of the Foo Fighters when they held several acoustic concerts around the country in June 2006. He is currently working with producer Gavin Monaghan, also known for his work with The Twang, Editors and Nizlopi.
