About Matthew “Sah”Jenifer:

Matthew “Sah” Jenifer is a 27-year old romantic from Newark, NJ. Since his first steps in front of DC congregations to the New York stage with interactive theatre troupe “Playing with Reality” – he’s been carefully perfecting his crafts and creating worlds of his own from scratch.

A studio-rat at heart, for the majority of his career, Sah has worked in obscurity – relatively unknown beyond his bedroom door. In recent years, word and downloads of his works have spread as far as Europe and number in the thousands. After leaving his job in 2011, his most recent release (self-produced joint- album and film: ART FEAR & LOATHING) caught the eye of numerous blogs and industry professionals. Self trained in several instruments and studio machinery, Sah is the definition of versatile, as showcased on pieces like WET.PLUG.TRIP’s infectious “New Shoes Song” and his latest single “Unfinished Business”.

Now performing regularly with PWR, orchestrating a live show, preparing an imprint launch, documentary and more than a few collaborative releases, Sah has “those in the know” on the edge of their seats- ready for the world to catch on. Whether the sounds hit you or the visuals keep you – with profound quality and dynamic presence, Sah will give anyone a reason to stay tuned.
