Matthew Barber (born January 10, 1977) is a singer-songwriter from Port Credit, Ontario. His music has been classified as indie pop and pop rock with folk and alternative country influences.
Gaining support from the small but committed Hamilton music community, he released his breakthrough album Means and Ends independently in 2002. The album soon caught the attention of Paper Bag Records, who re-released it to a wider audience in 2003. Barber’s sister, Jill Barber, is also a noted Canadian musician.
