Blues Matters! is a bimonthly British blues magazine. It is an award-winning magazine.[1]


Blues Matters! was founded by Alan Pearce in 1999.[2] It is published on a bimonthly basis.[1][2] Alan King and Darren Howells (until 2009) previously served as the magazine's editor-in-chief.[2]

The Blues Foundation, in Memphis, Tennessee, awarded the magazine the "Keeping the Blues Alive" (KBA) Award for 2007, in the Print Media category.[2] This is only the second time a British publication has received the award, and the first time for a Welsh production. Previous recipients have included major titles, such as Rolling Stone.[2] Blues Matters! is also the recipient of the European Blues Awards 2014 in the category of best publication.[3]
