MATT ALBER turned his attention to contemporary projects following a tenure with the San Francisco-based classical ensemble, Chanticleer, winning two Grammy Awards. In 2004 he released the self-produced album of experimental songs Nonchalant with co-producer/writer Jeff Crerie at Utmosis in San Francisco. Within months Alber was signed by Tommy Boy as the first artist to their new imprint, Silver Label, and immediately began work refining his independent release into the full-length, Hide Nothing from which, his “End Of The World” video made a grassroots tidal wave in the gay community and sparked sold out shows at his first tour in 2009. The video won an Out Music Award the same year and he was featured in OUT Magazine’s “Out 100.”
Fans of Jason Mraz, Iron & Wine, k.d. Lang, and Eva Cassidy find themselves at home at Alber’s shows.
