Matt Mardini is a crooner-singer based in Montreal, who originally hails from Aleppo, Syria.
With more than 20 years of professional experience singing for a wide range of events all over the world, Matt has performed at corporate shows, weddings, private parties, and everything in between.
Whether singing Jazz, Blues, Standards, Rock & Roll or Classics from the 40s up to the latest hits, our frontman can charm crowds in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Armenian, Russian and Arabic.
His first appearance on stage was in Aleppo in 1994 during a Christmas spectacular where he performed the best-loved carols of the season. He continued to perform locally after this, and in 1998 he started to sing at “The Aleppo Club” (Club elite in Aleppo - Syria) where he earned his reputation as Syria’s coolest crooner.
After this triumph, Matt moved to Damascus to perform at Sheraton Damascus “The Sheraton Pub” six nights a week between 2004 and 2012.
At this point the war sparked, and Matt had to leave his country along with his loved ones.
As a Syrian who moved to Canada to make a new life for himself and for his family, Matt is now driven by the desire to prove that an immigrant like him can achieve success in Canada and across the world.
Along with his talent and positive energy, this drive recently earned him an impressive gig at the Bell Centre, Montreal (January 28, 2017) as the first and only singer of Syrian origin to perform at the hallowed venue.
Now, having established himself with gigs across Montreal and Canada, Matt has produced his first EP Mini Album ( HIBA ) "The Syrian Crooner Sings the Canadian Icons."
His passion is singing and his target is making a positive and beautiful contribution to his new home country. After all, the immigrant experience is a profoundly Canadian one which continues to shape and enrich our shared cultural landscape.
Vive le Quebec, vive le Canada et vive la musique !!!
