The Rockin' piano man from Italy that will knock your socks off!
Matthew Lee is a rock’n’roll singer and pianist from Italy. Besides being a well-talented musician, his unmistakable and ductile voice can be energetic and gritty but also warm and expressive. Despite his young age, he is able to capture the audience's attention on stage, and he’s one of the most complete and charismatic artists in today's musical panorama.
Matthew was born in Pesaro, on January 6 1982. At 11, he started attending the Conservatoire in Pesaro, his hometown. He immediately learned the piano techniques, by playing classical music. His first contact with rock’n’roll arrived by listening to Elvis Presley's LPs, owned by his father.
Three times he was invited to the famous Italian TV show “Domenica In…” which was immediately followed by more TV. Meanwhile the press has defined him as the “genius in Jerry Lee Lewis' wake”
Matthew started touring the most famous Italian clubs, including The Place in Rome, Le Scimmie in Milan, Barfly in Ancona, Naima in Forlì. During summer 2005, he was invited to a number of important festivals, including San Severino Marche Blues Festival, which he opened in front of 1500 enthusiastic people, and the Summer Jamboree festival in Senigallia. At the end of 2005, Matthew performed in Rome, during New Year's Feast, with 150,000 participants.
In November 2006, Matthew Lee released his first album “Shake”, produced by the Italian group I Nomadi. The album was also recorded in their studios. The artistic director of this album was the Nomadi's guitar player Cico Falzone, who also recorded some guitar's tracks. This important co-operation led Matthew to be invited to open the concerts of this famous Italian group. In December 2006, Red Ronnie, who has always appreciated his art, invited him to perform at Motor Show in Bologna, in the "Myths of music" stand. During summer 2007, Matthew was invited by many important Italian blues festivals, including Soul Island festival, Brindisi blues festival, Subiaco Blues festival, Lodi Blues festival and Tropea blues festival.
Even internationally Matthew Lee does not go unnoticed: he started touring abroad last year, appearing in Holland, Germany, France and the UK.
His second album, ‘Matthew Lee live on stage’ was released in May 2008.
