A celebrated Canadian singer who has expanded on his crooner roots, Matt Dusk has forged an international career highlighted by 8 critically-acclaimed studio albums, countless TV and DVD specials, and unforgettable live performances world-wide. Dusk’s latest solo release, the JUNO award nominated MY FUNNY VALENTINE: THE CHET BAKER SONGBOOK, was a return to his jazz roots to pay homage to one of the most prolific musicians of the twentieth century – Chet Baker. Dusk recently launched an innovative project that sees him being the first musical artist in history to release multiple versions of a duets album in different global markets, each showcasing a celebrated duet partner from that local geography. The first two were released in the fall and winter of 2015, with Karen Aoki in Japan and pop sensation Margaret in Poland, including tours to support the album release. The third installment of this project is in Canada with a release featuring Florence K. The next releases scheduled are the Netherlands, Germany, the UK and the US.
Dusk has been awarded multiple GOLD and PLATINUM albums, and has enjoyed numerous NUMBER ONE radio hits globally. His performances showcase his classy cool style, his top band of musicians, and his seemingly effortless way of taking his audiences on a journey through his music and making them feel part of something special. 2016 also sees Dusk releasing multiple singles in specific global markets, starting with the spring launch of his latest pop single “Dangr” in Europe.
