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.
