Matt Weidinger has a voice like no other. The 24-year-old Kitchener, ON native is a passionate young songwriter, who is well known for his mature rock/soul vocals and impressive multi-instrumental (keyboards, guitars) talents.
Weidinger has spent the last year focusing primarily on his work with the band LumberJunk and his songwriting, which included several sold-out shows and the release of two EPs..
His unmistakable earthly tones captivate the hearts of anyone who hears it. He performs like a veteran musician on the piano and organ, and is equally proficient on guitar, bass or mandolin.
Although some consider him a throw back of the '60s, he still has the capacity to grab the attention of both the old, young and everyone in between. He's an “old soul” who easily commands the attention of any crowd. His passion for music and performing is contagious.
Starting his music career at the ripe age of 15, Weidinger has had the pleasure of playing a variety of venues around Southwestern Ontario on a weekly basis. He also performs at multiple blues festivals around the province.
“His raspiness is used often to accentuate the emotion he emulates. Yet, it’s never overdone. He knows what he is doing”. Dubecki, Craig, Velvet Rope. V.1.15.
