Matt has spent the last couple months on tour in support of his debut release and has a few remaining headlining club shows and opening slots on the Third Eye Blind tour (see below for complete itinerary). Matt will also make a special appearance, along with Mindy Smith and Jenny Owen Youngs,  in New York City at  The Housing Works Bookstore Café on Friday, December 21 at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $20 at www.livefromhome.org. All proceeds benefit Housing Works Inc.

Housing Works is the nation's largest minority-controlled AIDS services provider, offering shelter, medical services, job training, and legal advocacy to homeless people living with AIDS in New York City. The "Live From Home" music series was initiated in 2003, and since then has presented hundreds of artists—including Lyle Lovett, John Mayer, Tracy Chapman, Bright Eyes, Corinne Bailey Rae, and Rosanne Cash.  The series was named "Best in New York" by both the Village Voice and New York magazine.

One of Rolling Stone magazine's "10 Artists to Watch" Matt has written an album brimming with infectious melodies and lively rhythms, which Rolling Stone Magazine praised for “updating classic Billy-and-Elton-style Top 40 with Tears for Fears melodrama, Lovin' Spoonful sunshine, even a touch of Freddie Mercury-style falsetto theatrics." Details magazine included Best Days in their recent "best new music bubbling from the underground" section and raved Matt has "a falsetto smooth enough to melt the icy heart of a Brooklyn hipster." Elle magazine applauded, “Best Days is an infectious record of blue-eyed piano-and-guitar soul that's expertly arranged.”

Since the release of Best Days, Matt has entered the Billboard charts, performed at the NYC Marathon, and will sing his single in an upcoming Secret Deodorant commercial. In addition, Matt has performed on the CBS Early Show and Last Call With Carson Daly. Matt's single can currently be heard on ABC primetime TV spots, among other places.

Best Days represents the arrival of Matt White, one of today's most intriguing and gifted new artists.
