"I was transported to beautiful, treacherous emotional terrain." - Stephen Holden, The New York Times
Portland-based singer/songwriter Matt Alber is currently touring his 4th self-produced studio album entitled, Wind Sand Stars. The album features original pop/folk art songs rooted in melody with vocals reminiscent of Rufus Wainwright, Iron & Wine, and John Grant.
In 2014, Lincoln Center in New York invited Matt to perform on their esteemed American Songbook series which garnered a printed review by the New York Times. In 2015, he was selected by the U.S. State Department as a musical ambassador to Russia, Hungary, Kosovo and to Sudan, Africa where he taught recording arts & sciences to young artists in Khartoum.
Matt's music has been featured on ABC Family's series "The Fosters" and "Bones" and he appears on two Grammy Award-winning classical albums recorded at George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch with the acapella men's ensemble Chanticleer.
