A Toronto, Ontario singer/songwriter with a knack for crafting quirky, yet heartwarming songs, Matt Gerber is known for his ability to capture an audience’s attention with his combination of ukulele, kazoo and clever lyrics. Growing up in Wellesley, Ontario, Gerber sang in youth choirs and in a Barbershop Quartet. It was soon after University that he caught the songwriting bug.
By the time 2009 rolled around, Gerber, along with Mel Deogrades, John Prinos, Joseph Shaar and Jamie Birnie had formed the band Thirst and Stop. Thirst and Stop released their debut album “Airing The Pilot” in December of 2009. In the Fall of 2013, Gerber released his first self-produced full length solo CD, “Ain’t That Dandy!”.
Fast forward to November of 2017 and, like Vitamin Joy, from outer space, Gerber’s latest full-length solo album “Lady Bugs and Dandy Lions” has arrived, providing a dose of up-beat/kid-friendly music to charm and delight listeners. “Lady Bugs and Dandy Lions” is produced by Harrison Fine (2 time recipient of NOW Magazine’s Best Producer award for 2014 & 2015).
Gerber is an avid board game player and movie buff, who also happens to enjoy camping in the great outdoors.
