Santa Monica, California, January 11, 2008 ­ 2008 is starting off to be
a busy year for Geffen Records recording artist Matt White. The New
Jersey native won the recent round of Yahoo! Music's monthly "Who's
Next? Users' Choice" program, which asks consumers to vote on which of
four featured bands or artists will be the next big thing. His
performance on Yahoo! Music featuring songs from his debut album Best
Days will be available beginning today January 11th

Next week Matt will be the featured artist on MTV's 52 Bands. MTV's
52/52 campaign features one artist every week of the year for 52 weeks,
giving phenomenal exposure to artists with 11 hours of on-air
promotional time per week on MTV. 52 Bands will feature interviews with
Matt as well as performances, skits and behind the scenes footage.
Other "52 Bands" artists include Alicia Keys, Common and Paramore.

Matt is also gearing up to head out on the road. Kicking things off
January 17th in Orangevale, California at The Boardwalk the tour will
continue throughout the west coast before heading east. See below for
dates, more to be announced shortly.

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 Forty 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 while Elle Magazine
applauded, "'Best Days' is an infectious record of blue-eyed
piano-and-guitar soul that's expertly arranged." Entertainment Weekly
raved Matt "echoes the bittersweet musings of Jeff Buckley."
