Union Square Live 2018

Matt Jaffe is a singer/songwriter from San Francisco. Cutting his teeth on 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 churned out more songs than he can remember the words to, oversaturated the market with gigs (opening for the likes of Mavis Staples and Jackie Greene), and collaborated with the likes of Chuck Prophet and Tom Higgenson of the Plain White T’s. Having toured the country playing places like The Fillmore and your local hipster’s basement, Matt is back in the studio with his band, readying his third record and preparing to bring the guitar gospel back to the masses.
