Matt JaffeMatt Jaffe

Matt Jaffe is a rock ‘n’ roll singer/songwriter based out of San Francisco, CA. After Jerry Harrison, keyboardist of Talking Heads fame, discovered now-21-year-old Jaffe performing solo at a local open mic, the two worked together to produce his first set of studio recordings. Following this first taste of the music industry, Jaffe put together his own band of Paul Paldino on bass and Thomas Yopes on drums. Inspired by the pop, punk, and rockabilly mixtures of groups such as The Clash, X and Elvis Costello, the young group recorded their first EP of original material with producer Matthew King Kaufman (Jonathan Richman, Greg Kihn), Blast Off, released in April 2015. Having opened for Blues Traveler, Allen Stone, and The Tubes, among many others, Jaffe is now performing extensively around the nation, both solo and with his band.
