Daniel Matto
Daniel MattoAs a talented instrumentalist, Daniel Matto performed throughout Australia, Sweden and Finland in big bands and other ensembles. Daniel then realized his true musical passion was singing and went on to study voice at the Australian Conservatory of Music in Sydney.

As a jazz vocalist, Daniel started a lounge-style band, The Martini Orchestra, one that mixed original songs with tunes from the likes of Burt Bacharach and Sinatra. His vocal chops soon caught the attention of some of Australiaís leading jazz musicians, including internationally-acclaimed pianist Dave MacRae and singer Joy Yates, who became something of a mentor. He went on to perform with Yates and MacRae at some high-profile jazz festivals in Australia and New Zealand, and, as a backing singer for Australian star Alex Lloyd, he got to perform in front of Crown Prince Frederick and Princess Mary of Denmark at the 2005 Red Cross Performance Gala.

When Daniel migrated to Halifax four years ago, the land Down Under waved goodbye to one of its most promising young jazz vocalists. Daniel now calls Halifax home, gigging regularly in clubs and festivals on the East Coast. Word of his charm as a performer quickly spread and as a result he performed as guest soloist with Symphony Nova Scotia in their Traditional Pops Series with sold-out concerts across the province.

Daniel showcases a unique style of jazz through original compositions, standards and rarities. His latest album, Iím Old Fashioned, was nominated for Jazz Recording of the Year at the 2010 Music Nova Scotia Awards and the 2011 East Coast Music Awards.
