Matthew Whitaker is music. To see and hear him play is to know that divine talent exists. Beyond his innate musical abilities is a sheer joy and passion to create music.
Born in 2001 in Hackensack, New Jersey, jazz pianist and composer Matthew Whitaker grew up surrounded by music. His love for playing music began at age 3, when his grandfather gave him a small Yamaha keyboard. At 9, Whitaker taught himself how to play the Hammond B-3 organ. Four years later, he became the youngest artist to be endorsed by the Hammond Organ Company. He was also named a Yamaha artist at 15, becoming the youngest musician to join the stellar group of jazz pianists.
In August 2021, Whitaker released Connections, a bold declaration of his maturity as a pianist, composer, and bandleader. The performances on Connections reveal Whitaker’s burgeoning musical identity—one filled with deep confidence, rhythmic vigor, and marked melodic clarity.
