Matt White (born September 23, 1980) is an American singer-songwriter based in New York City. His full-length debut album, Best Days, released by Geffen Records, reached No. 4 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart. White was born in Englewood, New Jersey and raised in New York City. He began playing the piano at age three and grew up playing classical music. He wrote an opera at age 11. White moved to Wisconsin in 2002 for college and began his singing career by busking in a subway station. While attending the University of Wisconsin–Madison, he learned to play the guitar when a piano wasn't available. After graduating from college, White moved back to New York City, where he continued busking, singing on street corners and in Washington Square Park. He eventually began performing in clubs like Joe's Pub and the Living Room. A fan sent an MP3 of White's song, "Miracles", to an A&R rep at Geffen Records; his music, combined with him having over 50,000 MySpace friends, led to White being offered a recording contract with Geffen. In 2006, White debuted with the EP, Bleecker Street Stories, selling 100,000 copies. His full-length album, Best Days, was released on September 18, 2007
