Portland-based singer/songwriter Matt Alber is currently touring his 4th self-produced studio album entitled, Wind Sand Stars. The album features original pop/folk art songs rooted in melody with vocals reminiscent of Rufus Wainwright, Iron & Wine, and John Grant. Matt has appeared at Lincoln Center in New York on their esteemed American Songbook series and was selected last year by the U.S. State Department as a musical ambassador to Russia, Hungary, Kosovo and to Sudan, Africa where he taught recording arts & sciences to young artists in Khartoum.
Matt's music has been featured on ABC Family's television series "The Fosters" and "Bones" and he appears on two Grammy Award-winning classical albums while a member of the acapella men's ensemble, Chanticleer.
