Matt Giraud

Matt Giraud is a singer/songwriter from Kalamazoo, Michigan who achieved national recognition and acclaim for his performances on the hit Fox TV show, American Idol. As a favorite of the judges, he was the first ever recipient of the judges’ save, Matt went on to finish 5th on Season 8 of American Idol (2008-2009).

Since then, Matt has appeared on various media outlets and talk shows (i.e. The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Live with Regis & Kelly). He continues to tour all over the world and most recently has been playing with some of the biggest symphonies in the US. He has performed on stages such as The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, The Phoenix Symphony Hall in Phoenix and for a crowd of over 9000 for the Taste of Kalamazoo in Michigan.

Matt has also had major successes on iTunes by working with seasoned songwriters and artists. He recorded a cover of the song "You Don't Know Me" with Anna Wilson, which can be found on her album titled Countrypolitan Duets. The song went on to be #1 on the iTunes Jazz chart in 2010. He also recorded the song “Thank You” with Jim Brickman in 2010, which reached #16 on the Hot AC charts.

Matt continues to perform and write new music. He  released a full-length album in 2014 and released an EP called "Live at River City" on December 17, 2013.
