“A soul-stirring Maestro who invokes the essence of love into his music”
Jill Lawson, Huffington Post
Composer, performer and masterful instrumentalist Matt Venuti tours 9 months out of the year singing his original compositions while accompanying himself on the Swiss-made Hang and Gubal; innovative new instruments made famous through the internet but extremely rare to encounter live. The sounds from these instruments have the potential to impart a powerful and positive effect on the listener, and Matt is a gifted player who takes his audiences on a melodic and rhythmic journey while singing songs that “open the heart, quiet the mind, and touch the soul”. It’s a magical experience that is at once contemplative, energizing enchanting and fun! Matt also weaves intriguing dialogue about the instruments and his experience as a composer and musical shaman who has persevered and grown through some of life’s profound challenges.
Matt’s compositions and performances have been commended by his world-wide fans. He has a history of performing at progressive happenings like the TED Conferences and diverse concert venues either as a soloist or with his San Francisco-based ensemble, The Venusians.
