Matt Jaffe & The Distractions – “Blast Off”

Matt Jaffe is a great young Bay Area songwriter I’ve had the pleasure of working with recently. We recorded an album’s worth of songs last summer with me playing guitar to round out the high energy power-trio of Jaffe, drummer Alex Coltharp and bass player Sammie Fisher. Matthew King Kaufman produced and Michael Rosen engineered and mixed at his Berkeley studio. The rehearsals and recording sessions were an absolute blast and I love how it all came out. Now my young guitar student Alexander Newell is playing in the band! It’s such a joy to watch young musicians grow up and realize their dreams. Tour dates and links to get the EP are all at Check ’em out!
