About Matei

MATEI - Violinist, Singer/Songwriter
Violinist
London

After working as a classical violinist I learned to improvise and used my instrument in many types of modern music such as Pop, Rock, Electro or RnB. I now write, sing, and play pop songs, and will be happy to perform for your event in the style of your choice!

Matei surpassed expectations. He is an excellent musician with beautiful tones from his violin, but more than that, he is a wonderful improviser. Matei accompanied us in the studio where we are putting the final touches to an album, and he played in a range of 3 or 4 different genres for us. Great guy, and we all wish him every success in his musical career.

Matei is a very impressive performer. He is clearly very skilled in his instrument and songwriting, and he is able to improvise with other artists on-the-spot. His presence is most welcome at all of our open mic nights.
