Matt Hybarger has over 25 years of music and concert ministry with notable artists such as Steven Curtis Chapman, Steve Archer, Allen Asbury, Rich Mullins, Gary McSpadden, Scott Krippayne, David & The Giants, Michael English, David Meece, Clay Crosse, The Imperials, Petra, 4Him and many others. In addition, Matt twice played the lead role of Jesus in the touring company of the classic musical, Godspell. (Todd Agnew was also in the cast)
Matt is probably best known for the When Life Gets Broken project which yielded three Top 10 singles, "When Life Gets Broken" (featuring Russ Lee & Michael O'Brien) and "Never Alone" (with Kellye Huff) as well as his signature balled "Run To His Arms" which spent almost 5 years on Christian Music Weekly's Inspirational Chart!
When Life Gets Broken written by Hybarger & former Newsong front man Michael O'Brien was also recorded by GRAMMY and DOVE AWARD WINNER SANDI PATTY and founding Point of Grace member HEATHER PAYNE and released as the first single from Sandi's Dove Award winning CD, The Edge of The Divine.
2015 marked a resurgence of Hybarger's music ministry after 4 years. His single "You Are Here" written by Hybarger and SCOTT KRIPPAYNE climbed the charts on the Billboard, CMW and CRW Inspirational formats and peaked at #7.
The followup single, “The Purpose In The Pain” written by Matt & featuring harmonies by Krippayne reached #2 on the CMW Inspirational Chart. Matt’s first foray into Christian Country, a remake of the Eagles classic “Desperado” featuring lyrical tweaks by Hybarger, became his first #1 single.. Matt also embarked on his annual “Summerpalooza Tour” across the US. Summerpalooza has visited 70 cities in 25 states over the past 2 years. This year, Hybarger has added several “Christmas In July” events to help local churches jump start giving during typically slow summer months. Finally, Matt joined with Grammy winner and CCM legend, Steve Archer for the "Grown Up Christmas Tour" playing packed houses from California to Texas.
2017 promises to be even better as Hybarger has plans for 2 EP's, "Previously Recorded" featuring all of Hybarger's radio hits as well as 5 brand new arrangements of classic songs Matt "wished HE had written". There will also be the long awaited "HOPE" project featuring new songs from Hybarger co-written with award winning songwriters like Scott Krippayne, Keith Dudley, Regie Hamm and others.
All Matt's concerts are LOVE OFFERING events. He doesn't require a specific honorarium, instead trusting the Lord to meet the need through the congregations he ministers to.
