Matthew Whitaker’s love for music began at an early age. At 9, he taught himself to play the Hammond B3 organ. Four years later, he became the youngest artist to be endorsed by Hammond in its 80+ year history. At 15, he was named a Yamaha Artist, the youngest to join the stellar group of jazz pianists. The featured artist of Performing Arts Houston’s 2021 virtual gala, Whitaker makes his Houston live debut with playing and music that will astound and inspire.
