Matt Savage – pianist, composer, arranger, performer and bandleader – has been connected with some of the biggest names in jazz since he began his career at the age of eight. Now age twenty-two, Matt has eleven albums to his name, the newest of which are A Bigger Celebration (September 17, 2013) and the limited-edition release A Live Celebration: Kobe, Japan (January 14, 2014).

Matt’s accomplishments are especially impressive given the fact that as a young child he could not tolerate music or sound in general. At the age of three, Matt was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder, a high-functioning type of autism. For the next four years, his parents immersed him in intensive intervention therapies. At age 6 ½, Matt completed auditory integration therapy, which drastically reduced his sensitivity to sound. With re-tuned sensory and social perceptions, Matt immersed himself in all things musical. His abilities flourished at a hyper-accelerated pace. Matt taught himself to read music and play piano literally overnight.


This young man plays with grace, energy and originality. Jazz Savant INDEED!”


You blew my mind. That was incredible!”
~CONAN O’BRIEN, host of “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”
