Compared to distinctive singer-songwriters Bruce Springsteen, Bob Seger and Jackson Browne in reviews and by listeners, Frank writes and sings like a guy who’s been beat up and still won’t quit, like a guy who’s been dumped but still has hope for a happy ending. Many of the songs on the New York City based label Valley Entertainment release “Ready” feature gravel and silk, triumph and longing, and celebration and regret. Produced by Grammy Award winning Producer, Scott Mathews, Frank doesn’t hold back for anyone or anything. New York Times Best selling music writer Charles R. Cross once described Frank Barter songs as “Expansive as an Eastern Oregon Sunset.”
MATT JAFFE is a singer/songwriter from San Francisco. Cutting his teeth on open mics around the Bay Area, Matt started pursuing music 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 folks like MAVIS STAPLES, WILCO, and BLUES TRAVELER), and co-written with the likes of CHUCK PROPHET and TOM HIGGENSON of the Plain White T’s.
With his band, Matt has played stages across the country, including The Fillmore, The Troubadour, and Irving Plaza, and has just released his third album of original material, THE SPIRIT CATCHES YOU, another installment in his campaign to bring the Guitar Gospel back to the masses.
