For me, jazz-meets-classical attempts rarely work; they’re a little too neat and proper for my taste. But Montreal-based pianist Matt Herskowitz shatters that theory within the first eight bars of Upstairs. Throughout these eight tracks, he displays touch, power, artistry and chops along with a firm grasp of the daring needed for a great performance.

January 12, 2015 - Solo concert in Harlingen, Texas
Nearly finished the 3-week run of my musical theatre show, Bella: The Colour of Love in Toronto. It's been an amazing experience to do 21 performances of the show, we've learned so much, and it keeps getting better and better... I've just added a recent review of the show to the Press page, just click on the link to check it out.
I've added a little promotional video from Live On Stage on the Videos page, who is representing me for bookings for their 2014-15 season - short and sweet!
