Matt Jaffe Band
Cutting his teeth on open mics around the Bay Area, Matt started pursuing music more seriously when Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads offered to produce his first record. Since then, Matt has churned out more songs than he can remember the words to, oversaturated the market with gigs (opening for folks like Mavis Staples, Wilco and Blues Traveler), and co-written with the likes of Chuck Prophet. With his band, Matt has played stages across the country, including The Fillmore, The Troubadour, and Irving Plaza. Jaffe has drawn comparisons from music writers to Joe Strummer, Elvis, Johnny Cash, Sinatra, Bob Dylan and both Davids Bowie and Byrne. His poise and style bely his youthful appearance, and he is developing a songwriting style all his own, with three albums to his credit.
