Matt Jaffe

rising singer-songwriter
Woody Guthrie Stage – Rm 232 / 4:00 - 4:30

Matt Jaffe is a 22 year old 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. Fresh off the release of his first LP, California’s Burning, Matt Jaffe is street-teaming with the best of them to bring rock & roll and country back to the masses.
