Matthew Perryman Jones is a seeker and storyteller at heart. An articulate Nashville-based singer/songwriter with a versatile tenor voice and a thoughtful acoustic rock-driven sound his musical and moral compass points toward an artistic horizon he has yet to explore. It could be said that Matthew makes soul music — not based on how it sounds, but on where it originates and where it resides.
Originally from Pennsylvania, Matthew grew up in Georgia and cut his artistic teeth in the Atlanta music scene before heading north to Nashville. His debut release, Nowhere Else But Here, dropped in 2000, followed by three subsequent albums — Throwing Punches in the Dark(2006), Swallow the Sea (2008), and Land of the Living (2012) — and three additional EPs as well as a handful of singles. Songs from across his catalog have been featured in dozens of film and TV placements, and tours have taken him across the U.S. and abroad to share stages with legends like Shawn Colvin and Patty Griffin, as well as the Ten Out of Tenn songwriter collective of which he is a part.
