Popular Swiss singer-songwriter. He grew up in Bern, studied law and, after his PhD, taught law at Berne university. Matter performed his own chansons in contemporary Bernese German at local venues and on the radio; he accompanied himself on the guitar. He was killed on 24 November 1972 in a car accident on his way home from a concert.
His Bernese German songs remain very popular in the Swiss German speaking part of Switzerland, and Matter is a great influence on the dialect music scene in Bern, and his songs are frequently covered.
