Biography:
'Everything Changed On The Way...' the new EP from Matt Humphreys is more fact than fiction for this singer/songwriter from Toronto. Having grown up in a Northern Ontario town, Matt brings a folk/roots vibe to his brand of adult contemporary pop.  His songs speak of growing up, experiencing life, and finding (and losing out on) love.

The EP, produced by veteran Paul Milner who's previous credits include Queensryche, Eddy Grant, Sass Jordan, and the Doughboys, is backed by a band of stellar musicians including Kevin Breit (Celine Dion, Norah Jones), Mark Rogers (Kazzer, Edwin), and Jamie Oakes (Amy Sky, Tom Cochrane).  'Bailee', a song about breaking free from an emotionally negative relationship, highlights Matt's soaring melody over layered instrumental arrangements.

Born in Sudbury and raised in the town of Timmins, Ontario, Matt studied piano and voice privately before moving to Toronto to continue his studies at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Music. After graduating with a Bachelor of Music in Voice, he continued to embrace the popular side of music as a frequent performer in pubs and clubs across the country.

From 1998 - 2003, Matt toured extensively with the celtic/folk ensemble Urban Folk, releasing two albums, both containing original material penned by Matt. 

Matt was recognized for his vocal abilities by being a featured contestant on the first season of the CTV television show 'Canadian Idol', battling his way to the top 48 singers in Canada, and more recently, in the third season, reaching the TOP 32.

Striving to break the mold of the contemporary pop singer, Matt draws inspiration from piano-pop greats like Billy Joel, Elton John, and James Taylor.
