Singer/Entertainer Matt Barber

Singing sensation Matt Barber performs the finest Jazz, Pop, and Variety, performing over 300 concerts per year, for over a decade.

With a passionate, uplifting style reminiscent of Barry Manilow and Michael Buble, Matt delivers songs we know and love with a sincere, meaningful approach. His passion for his music comes through in every song.

Matt recently released his 7th studio album, “The Song Is You,” recorded and produced in Los Angeles with a cast of world-class musicians including pianist Bradley Young and Marc LeBrun, bassist David Enos, pianist/guitarist Stephan Oberhoff, award-winning trumpeter Tony Guerrero and saxophonist Mack Goldsbury. The album was started in 2019 and is Matt’s most anticipated release.

Since his debut in 2005, Matt has released “Romancing Nashville (2007)”, “Love Notes From Paradise (2009),” “It’s Been A Merry Christmas (2009),” and “The Masterpiece Collection (2011),” and “More Today Than Yesterday (2015),” and “Fireside Jazz (2021).” Matt has recorded and toured with good friend, Day Kelly (Brother Day), former trumpet player for Ray Charles. In 2019, Matt released his first original song “Moments In Time,” co-written and produced with Brother Day. Matt’s music can be found online on all major online platforms including Apple Music, Amazon, and Spotify.

Matt’s music has recently been featured on KKJZ (KJAZZ) 88.1 FM in Los Angeles. He has had the honor of performing at notable venues internationally, including The Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, Andy Williams’ Moon River Restaurant in Branson, as well as the Illinois State Fair, and a variety of private events.

Matt’s show, “The Matt Barber Experience” consists of “fun, upbeat, and relaxing music from the heart,” providing an extensive repertoire of music, making for a fun, relaxing, and interesting experience that all ages will enjoy, whether you spend a romantic evening with that special person, or a fun night which you can bring your friends, or whole family to enjoy.

“If I can help people forget their problems, feel uplifted, and bring them some happiness, then I’ve done my job,” says Matt.

“In the small field of creative male jazz singers, Matt Barber ranks near the top. He certainly keeps busy, typically performing at over 300 concerts per year. Barber has a strong and appealing voice along with attractive phrasing that makes each song he interprets into a swinging affair. The Song Is You is his seventh recording as a leader since 2005.” – Scott Yanow, jazz journalist/historian

”Smooth as silk.” – Dave Koz

“Matt, I congratulate you on your ability to keep alive the great music we love alive and well.  Keep up the good work and I wish you continued success in your career.  My best to you!” - Vinnie Falcone, music director/pianist for Frank Sinatra
