Matt Jaffe is a rock & roll singer/songwriter from the San Francisco Bay Area. Cutting his teeth on countless open mics around the Bay, 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, perform on stages throughout the land (opening and/or touring with the likes of Mavis Staples, Wilco, Bob Weir, Jackie Greene, Chuck Prophet, Melissa Etheridge, and Blues Traveler), and collaborate with Tom Higgenson of the Plain White T's. Along with serving on Bread & Roses Board of Directors, Matt is at work on a musical adaptation of the celebrated Chuck Prophet album, Temple Beautiful. Fresh off the release of his fifth LP Kintsugi, Matt is already back in the studio, street-teaming with the best of them to bring the gospel to the masses.
