Matt Wigler is a jazz pianist, organist, singer, and composer from Baltimore, Maryland. Born in 1994, he began playing piano at age 5, and even then revealed his talent for improvisation.

This gifted, young artist has maturity, skill and versatility well beyond his years.

Matt has performed at notable venues in the Washington DC area including the Kennedy Center, Strathmore Music Center and Blues Alley. He has also played at festivals throughout the US and Canada, including the Monterey Bay Blues Festival (CA), Beaches International Jazz Festival (Toronto), Telluride Jazz Festival (CO), DC Jazz Festival (DC), and Artscape (MD)....
