"Frazier provides a solid, steady pulse with creative fills and great energy." Music Connection Magazine
"Matt plays with energy, musicianship, and has a toehold on the groove - lots of talent."
"Matt belongs in the studio.
Matt Frazier is a song-oriented drummer and percussionist with extensive experience in arena, studio, club, show, and casual contexts. His working-class middle-American roots influence every aspect of his craft. "I'm a no nonsense guy and that's how I play drums," Matt says. He finds efficiency in simplicity, giving exactly what's essential, never overwhelming the listener with needless information. That philosophy combines with solid time, tasteful finesse, a wide variety of dynamics and textures, and an astute artistic sensitivity to result in a distinct and highly sought after sound.
Band mates frequently comment on Matt's conscientious approach to music and life. "I play a supportive role as a drummer and that's the way I like it. Anything I can do to make the band and the lead voice or instrument sound better is what I try to do. Add great ears and well developed sight reading skills to Matt's list of qualities and it's understandable how he's been able to work in so many different musical contexts covering virtually all styles of Pop, Rock, R & B, Soul, Blues, Jazz, Latin and Country.
Matt's playing can be heard on TV shows like Bravo's "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" and Spike TV's "10 Things Every Guy Should Experience. He has also worked in the studio with new artists like retro rocker Andy McCutcheon (produced by Brad Gilderman) and has performed live with classic R&B acts like Billy Paul, Friends of Distinction, GQ, Heatwave, and Gene Chandler. Other credits include: Barbara Lewis; Malo; Barbara Mason; Blue Magic; Joe Bataan; The Originals; Sonny Ozuna; The Wayne Foster Orchestra; The Ms. Kentucky Pageant; and Actors Theatre of Louisville.
In addition to being a passionate musician, Matt is a well-studied professional. He has studied with some of the best drummers in the world: Kenny Aronoff (Smashing Pumpkins, John Mellencamp, Melissa Etheridge); Jeff Hamilton (Ray Brown, Oscar Peterson, Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra); and Jeff McAllister (Duke Robillard, Hank Williams Jr., Lynyrd Skynyrd).
Matt is available for work in the Seattle area or for travel. His U.S. passport is up to date.

Matt Frazier - Songwriter
"An accomplished multi-instrumentalist [with] a sound that's unique within the genre. Frazier hearkens back to the… glory days of singer-songwriters-melodic, sometimes introspective writing mated with instrumental acumen… a musician's musician."
Which is no mean feat when you play all the instruments yourself, as Frazier did. LEO Magazine (Louisville, KY)
Matt Frazier's songs explore the deepest parts of our human experiences: oppression and triumph; sorrow and joy; loneliness and intimacy; pain and beauty. A few of them are just for fun. The Wisconsin State Journal calls his music "highly reflective and introspective, whether he's singing about the big questions of life or the small struggles of individuals. Matt's written music for the Bravo network and several independent artists have recorded his songs. He's performed in small coffee shops, large arenas, and just about everything in between.
Matt's extensive musical background includes a bachelor's degree in music theory and a master's in commercial music. He's led workshops on songwriting, musicianship, and music production and several of his songs have been sung and recorded at spiritual gatherings large and small across the US and Canada. Matt has performed on and produced musical recordings for educational and not-for-profit organizations. A native of Louisville, KY, Matt now lives in Seattle.
