Biography

Matt Burke is an entertainer of a caliber that is none-too-common in today’s music scene. A talented guitar player, a soulful vocalist, and a playful and energetic emcee, Burke provides the total package for a night of good times and good music. He describes his music as, “Music for people whose music is people music”, and while the wording takes a moment to dissect, the message remains true: people of all ages and stations in life enjoy the music he plays.

With the help of a drum and bass synthesizer, a vocal harmony pedal, and a looping pedal, Burke is a literal one-man-band. His performances stretch across moods, genres, tempos and timings. What starts as a relaxed ballad could end as an ever-evolving organically created landscape of bongos, congas, bass lines, chords and melody. His songs stretch from 60’s classic rock to current hits, as well as his own interpretations of pop hits and one-hit-wonders. He makes a bar feel like a buddy’s house party. He is both performer and spectator. He’s fun and he’s funny, he’s energetic and he’s enigmatic.

This isn’t your standard “dude-on-a-stool-with-an-acoustic-guitar” type of performer… this is Matt Burke.
