Matt Austen Greenwood

Born and raised in Harare, Zimbabwe, Matt Greenwood is now pursuing his passion for music in Toronto. Matt is about to finish his fourth and final year of Humber’s Bachelor of Music degree program. Growing up in Zimbabwe meant access to music education or even equipment was extremely limited.
However, the country’s rich musical heritage and culture was an incredible thing to be a part of. Matt has performed and recorded with some of Zimbabwe’s most acclaimed musicians including Oliver Mtukudzi, Gemma Griffiths, Forward Kwenda and Vee Mukarati as well as some of Toronto’s finest such as Mark Kelso and Mike Downes.

From early on in his musical development, Matt as had a passion for composing and has scored a number of short films including the award winning animated short ‘Blue Bird’ which featured at film festivals including Cinequest, Atlanta Film Festival, New York Film Festival and New Media Film Festival among others. Matt is currently working with a variety of Toronto based musicians as well as his own band featuring Lucas Dubovik, Joshua Stanberry, Matt Dicker and Matt McCormack.

The Band
