Album Notes
Matt grew up in Canistota, South Dakota, and started playing the piano at age 12. He has been writing and composing music ever since. Today, some of Matt's performance resume includes NBC's Access Hollywood's 2002 Christmas Party, The Mall of America, Three appearances at Washington D.C.'s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Georgetown University Conference Center, the 2006 Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholder Event, McKennan Park, Festival of Cultures, Minneapolis' International Airport, Washington Pavilion, and USD's Farber Hall.

Matt continues to expand his audiences with his unique playing style and sound. In the fall of 1999, Matt's first CD "Crossing the Bridge" was released under his own label, Mayer Music LLC. Today, he has produced 8 solo piano albums, with his most recent release "Full of Grace".

Matt attended the University of South Dakota where he graduated with his Bachelors in Business Administration along with taking another year of formal piano training and education. After college, Matt spent a semester developing and facilitating a course at the university. The course was called 'The Business of Music' and it was a first in USD's history to combine the departments of the fine arts program and the business school. After teaching in 2001, Matt moved to California where he worked at NBC's entertainment television show Access Hollywood. After a couple years, he moved back to the Midwest and attained his Masters degree in Business Administration from USD. Matt currently performs to a variety of audiences nationwide with the goal of touching people's hearts through the medium of solo piano music.

This music is meant to be a vessel and to connect with people's hearts through the medium of solo piano... a communication in which speaks of human feeling, emotion, victory, defeat, hope, love, courage, strength, passion, wonder, drive, spirit. The unspoken experience we all go through in life.

Unbelievable....Will take industry by storm very soon
I have to say I have been a fan of Matt Mayer for many years and have listened to his music since the beginning of his career. I have watched him grow into his own and perform in front of crowds that continue to get larger and larger after every concert. If you have not listened to his music I highly suggest listening to his original, new age, take you off your feat style!

Soulful Solo-Piano
I have been listening to Matt play the piano since he was in high school; yet every time I hear him play, something unique happens. His creations have the ability to inspire the soul and awaken the imagination. As with all great music, Matthew Mayer's works cannot be adequately described in words. 'Beyond' exemplifies Matt's unforgettable creativity along with his advanced mastery of the keys. This is one musical journey you must experience for yourself.

Music to take you places
An amazing CD and truly amazing original work. This artist continues to grab me with everything he creates. If you're sad...there's a song for you. If you're happy...there's a song for you. If it's just damn good music...the whole album is for you! Truly looking forward to his next project.

Crystal clear music, filled with thought provoking sounds.
This album meets the need of those of us who think with our music. Picture being out in the middle of an isolated field, with starlight for a ceiling and singing crickets and frogs for background. You are with someone important to you . The pleasant, crystal clear sounds of Matt's piano fit into the mold of your philosophical discussions. Life, the universe, religion, and humanity are topics drawn out by the music. The trivialities of modern life, the fashions, cell phones, superbowls, and competitions seem to fade into the background as Matt's music smooths your soul and fits it to the Tao of the universe. When the music ends, your interchange of ideas with your friend is sealed forever, and life will look different, in a deep, pleasant way, like Matt's music.

I love solo piano music. Beyond stands out as one of the best I've heard. If you like early George Winston (Autumn, Decemeber, Winter Into Spring) or David Nevue, check out Matthew Mayer - you won't be dissappointed.

Dean Hunsaker

There is a lot of nice piano solo music to be heard, but I find Mr Matthew's piano solos very compelling. The album "Beyond" has a passion and vitality to it that sets it apart. It leaves me listening to it repeatedly.

A Breathtaking Treasure...Absolutely Incredible!
Each song is but only one chapter in a much bigger story waiting to be told. All of your senses can experience and feel the true depth and passion in this breathtaking treasure of "Beyond." Virtually impossible to pick a favorite. Just when you think you've picked a favorite, the next composition begins, and it's this unending cycle of just which one is your favorite. Each composition will take you to places you most likely have never been before. 5 stars is truly only the beginning.

Unbelievable Solo Pianist
This is one of the most remarkable CD's I have ever heard. I have been a big fan of Matthew Mayer's for quite some time now and I can honestly say that I have never heard a more brillant and talented artist. He is truly one of a kind! I look forward to hearing his newest projects on this site. If you are considering purchasing one of Matthew Mayer's CD's, there is no need to consider it, it is well worth the purchase. The music is inspirational, uplifting and down right good for the soul.


This CD will transcend your expectations and take you to a place of peace and tranquility. Listen to it on the way home from work to help you destress from the day.
