Matthew Fisher (born Matthew Charles Fisher, 7 March 1946 in Addiscombe, Croydon, England) is a Hammond organist, singer-songwriter, and was the man responsible for the organ sound on the 1967 single "A Whiter Shade of Pale".

He was a member of Procol Harum; producer to Robin Trower, James Dewar and Tir Na Nog (among others); and enjoyed a solo career, being especially popular in Greece . His solo albums include Journey's End (1973), I'll Be There (1974), Matthew Fisher (1980), and Strange Days (1981).

Two of the albums he produced for Trower, Bridge of Sighs (1974) and For Earth Below (1975), have been certified gold by the RIAA, whilst "A Whiter Shade of Pale" has enjoyed multi-platinum status. Fisher's Hammond organ playing on pianist David Lanz's instrumental version of "A Whiter Shade of Pale" from his 1988 CD, Cristofori's Dream, helped that album go gold as well.
