Matt Jaffe is a 24 year old rock & roll singer/songwriter from San Francisco. Cutting his teeth on countless open mics around the Bay Area, Matt started taking music (a little bit) more seriously when Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads offered to produce his first record. Since then, Matt has continued to churn out more songs than he can remember the words to, oversaturate the market with gigs (opening and/or touring with the likes of Mavis Staples, Wilco, Jackie Greene, Melissa Etheridge, and Blues Traveler), and collaborate with Chuck Prophet and Tom Higgenson of the Plain White T's. With his band, Matt has played stages across the country, including The Fillmore, The Troubadour, and Irving Plaza. Fresh off the release of his third LP, The Spirit Catches You, Matt is already back in the studio, street-teaming with the best of them to bring the guitar gospel to the masses.
