About Matt Jaffe
However you got here, thanks for taking the time to visit my Patreon page. As a songwriter, I've explored many avenues of getting my tunes heard, from performing in dive bars to recording in basements. I am still searching for the best way to make music for the sake of the song, without the inherent baggage of the modern music industry. I am hopeful that the Patreon community will give me the chance to put the songs at the forefront, the opportunity to connect with music lovers who would rather hear the homespun takes of these songs, unadorned by cumbersome promotional efforts. The versions that are faithful to the wee small hours during which they're written, and recorded intimately without the external pressures that accompany studio time.
While I will to continue my work with the band, I hope that this will be a new outlet for personal expression that can complement our live performances and broader online presence. Thank you for your support and for believing in the power of song as not a means, but an end. Recently, with the influx of social media, songs have often become the vehicle for imagery, the proverbial Tapatío to the music video's taco. With your help, I look forward to making the song the taco. I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
