News | January 2021 | Happy New Year!

Dear friends,

Wishing you and yours a very Happy 2021!  We look forward to seeing you in person again soon!   Matt has been working on some exciting new music, and will be performing a select number of shows in Southern California this winter.

New Single "East of The Sun (and West of the Moon)" now available!

This brilliant new arrangement of the classic jazz standard “East of the Sun,” written by Brooks Bowman features a cast of some of Matt’s favorite world class musicians and will be featured on the new EP, “Oh, Look At Me Now!” planned for release in 2021!  Download the single on Apple Music, Amazon, or stream on Spotify.  

The recording features Marc LeBrun – piano, David Enos – bass / rhythm arrangement, Greg Sadler – drums, Tony Guerrero – flugelhorn, and an exquisite new string arrangement and guitar by Stephan Oberhoff.  The song was mixed and mastered by Stephan at his studio, the Creation Station in Pasadena, CA.  The album features all new arrangements, performed by world class musicians, and Matt singing at his best!
