Mat Gauthier started recording parodies at the age of 10 with guitar, keyboards, bass and drums. Throughout the years, Mat has built versatility in his voice by recording these parodies without realizing that it would eventually be the key to developing his voice for impressions.
Mat coordinated a concert in March of 2002 that consisted of singers and musicians, and decided to give the audience something very different from the norm, a singing variety act. The audience loved it so much and before he knew it he was getting calls from corporate events, parties, churches, festivals…wherever there was a need for entertainment!! Mat’s powerful 5 octave range allows him to cover genres of music from the 50’s to the music of today.
In 2004, Mat won the ‘Rising Star’ competition in the World Tribute Artist Championships. In 2005, he was chosen as one of the top two finalists at Canada’s Great Impressions Contest, sponsored by the Comedy Network. Undeniably, Mat Gauthier is a very talented singer, musician, songwriter and impressionist who is making his mark on the world stage.
