“To see and hear him play is to know that divine talent
exists.”
WBGO

Matthew Whitaker’s love for music began at the age of three, after his grandfather gave him a small Yamaha keyboard. At nine years old, Matthew began teaching himself how to play the Hammond B3 organ. Four years later, he became the youngest artist to be endorsed by Hammond in its 80+ year history. From performing at Stevie Wonder’s induction to the Apollo Theatre’s Hall of Fame ceremony to his stunning debut at the Mondavi Center in 2022, Whitaker has achieved so much, so quickly. But it’s his rich talent and effusive spirit, not his youth, that keep audiences coming back to experience Whitaker and his talented bandmates. His most recent album, Connections, documents a further leap of this already prodigious talent.
