Although a gospel pianist, Lorne combines a lot of varied styles to come up with the Lorne Matthews style. He has studied a lot of classical music, but says he has been highly influenced by jazz and blues greats like Peter Nero and Oscar Peterson. He has a natural gift to play black gospel, southern gospel or country style. Lorne is an "artist" who paints a picture with his music...the artist weaves, sculpts and creates various musical pictures. You are more than just an observer or a listener - you become a part of the masterpiece. These pictures cannot be duplicated because they come from the deepest emotion of the artist. Lorne Matthews is in a league of his own. His performance is a unique blend of God-given talent, anointing, unusual creativity and hard work.
