Mat is from Gatineau, Quebec, a young man that started competing in the Elvis Tribute Artist (ETA) world in 2022.
It all began with a visit to Graceland in 2017. Mat was immediately impressed with the costumes and fashion style. That visit prompted him to find out more about Elvis’s life and his songs, learning them on his own and singing them alone or in front of his family, until his first public performance in June 2022.
Since the summer of 2022, Mat has continued to perfect his art, voice, and performances, attracting more and more fans with each show by becoming more popular in his own region, in different Canadian cities and in multiple cities in the USA.
Mat won his first competition at the 2023 Penticton BC Elvis Festival in June 2023. With only 1 year under his belt as an ETA competitor, this win led him to represent the Penticton Elvis Festival at the Ultimate Elvis competition in Memphis Tennessee in August of the same year.
