Born in 1992 and raised in downtown Toronto, Dante Matas began writing music on the piano at eight years old. After forming his first band at Etobicoke School of the Arts as lead singer and guitarist and then later picking up bass and drums, Dante would discover music to be his lifelong passion and a means to his creative expression.
Today, with an MA in Philosophy and a penchant for poetry and creative writing, Dante has combined his interests to create his own unique brand of pop, folk, and experimental music. He is influenced by the likes of Radiohead, Sufjan Stevens, Paul Simon, The Beatles, and Leonard Cohen among many others. Dante’s music tends to have a contemplative and introspective character to it, but never at the expense of a catchy melody.
Dante has written and self-produced numerous singles and EPs, as well as two full-length albums. He has released the EP “Midnight Sun” and the single “Waterfalls” through the label Akashic Rekords with worldwide distribution through The ILS Group/Universal. He has composed music for commercials used internationally. Dante writes and records music daily, plays live shows frequently, and is constantly perfecting his musical craft. Dante’s goal is to communicate human emotion through music and lyrics in a way that resonates with a diverse audience.
