Matt Steele is a young Wellington based pianist. He recently completed his honours degree in jazz performance at the University of Auckland, studying piano with Kevin Field. A dynamic performer, in his music Matt demonstrates a “‘wider awareness, an openness, and a hunger for what is just out of reach” (John Fenton, 2014). He is the 2012 winner of the Lewis Eady Charitable Trust Emerging Artists Series. Matt has played with many great musicians and bands throughout New Zealand including Lisa Tomlins, Lex French, Roger Manins, Chelsea Prastiti, Julien Dyne, Myele Manzanza, The Aviators, Auckland Jazz Orchestra and Pyramids.

Matt brings veterans Ron Samsom and Kevin Haines to the Auckland Jazz Club for an evening of

familiar jazz standards. Kevin, Ron and Matt often got together to play standards while Matt was resident in Auckland for a few years. The trio is excited to present their unique dialogue in only their second ever public performance as this group.

Matt was the JOY CREES AWARD jazz performance scholarship winner for 2016
