Meet Matthew Savage of Savage Records in Allston

Today we’d like to introduce you to Matthew Savage.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I am a jazz pianist on the autism spectrum and have been playing the piano since the age of 6. I have recorded many albums and I studied at Berklee and Manhattan School of Music.

Recently, I have been teaching at several schools in the Boston area, including Bunker Hill Community College and Community Music Center of Boston.

Since I was a child, I have played jazz in solo and trio formats; however, in the last couple of years, I have played with a funk/fusion group called the Matt Savage Groove Experiment.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The music world is not necessarily the easiest job out there! I have planned major trips both in advance and at the last minute, depending on how opportunities have come into being.

There are a lot of different people that one must remember as a public figure, and that is perhaps the hardest thing I have had to deal with. It’s difficult to remember people from gigs I did 5-10 years ago, because there have been so many concerts since then.

But I’ve enjoyed my travels and I’m proud to be a professional musician.

Savage Records – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I have done all of my own records through my record label, Savage Records, which has been in the family since I was a kid.

Throughout the years, I have tried to make each album unique, and to work on the albums carefully. It’s important to edit albums carefully and to make every CD an engaging listen from start to finish. This holds true even if it’s not a big-budget album.

What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
I really enjoyed my two week-long tours of Japan – the audience there is extremely polite and receptive to jazz!

Pricing:

  • Matt Savage – Piano Voyages the new album, $15
