Matt Kabus

There is an abundance of talented singers, songwriters, musicians, producers and performers in the music scene today. It is rare to find a representation of the total package. Matt Kabus is a rising star with a fresh new sound that embodies the unique confluence of thoughtful lyrics coupled with memorable tunes.

Kabus emerged onto the music scene as a solo performer as well as the lead and founder of the Matt Kabus Band. He has performed at the last three Sundance Film festivals, The Classical meets Jazz Strings Festival in Steamboat Colorado, numerous charitable organizations, and opened for Zac Brown, Sister Hazel, Alison Krauss, Ed Roland, Matthew Mayfield and many more.

Kabus’ music education spans from his classical piano upbringing, high school concert and garage band years with various instruments, to his advanced theory and jazz courses at UGA and the Vivaldi Conservatory in Alessandria, Italy.

Kabus spent his college years playing between Atlanta and Athens on a regular basis. Some of the local Atlanta spots you would catch him playing at are venues such as Eddie’s attic, Smith’s Olde Bar, the Vinyl, Masquerade, etc. His love for sharing his music runs so deep that you might happen upon him singing solo at the local pub one night only to find him on stage headlining a full-size venue the next. Kabus delivers a pure musical experience that brings a rush of satisfaction to any listener.

Before leaving for the west coast, Kabus won best performance in a competition to represent Heineken Beer Inc. at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. Also, his original song “Picture Frame” was placed on MTV’s 16 & Pregnant (Season 4 Episode 10). Kabus also composed the music for Ted Turner’s Captain Planet foundation video, which aired during his annual event, held this past year at the GA Aquarium. Later that night, he went on to open for Alison Krauss for the event’s entertainment.

Kabus recently set up shop in Los Angeles where he balances working in music placement at J-3 Music while also producing and co-writing with other national artists. Since his move in November, Kabus has already written and produced an album’s worth of new material, produced two featured singles and full album for other artists, achieved music placement and vocal performance on a CATO fashion TV commercial, and acted in the feature film, The Morningside Monster (2013). He is about to finish his latest music project, which you can expect to hear this year!

We expect great things to come from this multi-talented, rising star. His plan is to continue to write and produce original music and grow his audience to all over the world through music placement in the coming year.
