Matt Dusk - Good NewsMatt can shift effortlessly from Sinatra-style jazz numbers to quirky pop originals. A graduate of Toronto’s St. Michael’s Choir School, which has given the world such top singers as Michael Burgess, John McDermott and the Four Lads, the young crooner mixes both styles on his third CD, including the swinging, finger-snapping “Feel Good” and the dark, synth-laden “Love Attack.” Give him top marks for eclecticism, but Mark is best when delivering a touching piano ballad like the closing “Love, Don’t Let Me Go.”
