Matteo Palmer's passion for acoustic fingerstyle guitar developed after seeing Alex De Grassi perform live, and he soon reached out to Grammy winning guitarist and producer Will Ackerman to pursue his music further. At the age of seventeen, he recorded his debut album “Out of Nothing” at Will’s Imaginary Road Studios. He has been recognized internationally for his guitar playing, and has been a featured performer at both the 11th annual Zone Music Reporter Awards Show in New Orleans, and the NAMM Convention in Anaheim.
His second album was again produced by Will Ackerman and was released summer of 2016. Matteo studied Composition at the Mcnally Smith College of Music where he also recorded his third album, "Opaline Sky," back in 2017. Along with his fingerstyle guitar career, Matteo also writes a variety of music styles for television, and he is currently working on a new EP to be released in January.
"I have had the honor of working with some of the most influential guitarists in the latter part of the 20th century and feel utterly confident in saying that Matteo Palmer is the real deal."
-Will Ackerman, Grammy-winning guitarist and founder of Windham Hill Records
