  • Matthew Hale Award, 2019
Matthew Schofield

Matthew Schofield has been singing for as long as he can remember. Inspired by the great rappers from the global stage such as Eminem and Logic, Matthew started listening to hip-hop four years ago.

Matthew has been working with the New Writing North project Young Writers’ City at Excelsior since shortly after he returned from Australia three years ago. Matthew credits local hip-hop star and actor, Kema Kay, for inspiring him to pick up the pen (or more accurately notes on his phone) and create his own tracks and to tell his own story. Kema has been mentoring Matthew at New Writing North’s Young Songwriting Group since autumn 2018 and together they have begun producing his first E.P.
