Matt is a celebrated singer and frontman extraordinaire with over 1000 live performances throughout his career. Whether it is a club, banquet hall, arena, sound stage, or busking on the street, Matt is a confident performer who engages audiences at every turn.
When not fronting Toronto’s #1 Live Event Band, Saturday Night Superstars, Matt can be found entertaining crowds in a solo capacity, or subbing in for other cover bands including the Keynotes, Replica, and 3 Sheets 2 the Wind. He is also frequently engaged for recording studio work, including demo song recordings and voice over talent.
The music of Matt Humphreys brings a folk/roots vibe to adult contemporary pop. The singer/songwriter bubbled just under the Top 30 on Canadian Idol, but places much higher in his estimation for songs that are once original and highly reminiscent of the classic pop of James Taylor and Billy Joel. This bodes well for a long career..
