Plenty of people get famous for starring in reality shows. But Matt Dusk got famous for being in the background of one.
Going back a bit, Matt was the in-house entertainer on Mark Burnett's reality-drama 'The Casino'.
After years spent trying to make it in the bars and clubs of Toronto, The Casino gave Matt's career a big-league boost.
He scored a hit with his debut album 'Two Shots': a record that harkened back to the era of the Rat Pack and the giants from that era that inspired him. We're talking about Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and the West-Coast jazz legend Chet Baker.
Matt pays tribute to Chet on his new record 'My Funny Valentine: The Chet Baker Songbook'.
