Matthew Perryman Jones


This week’s artist, Matthew Perryman Jones, comes from my favorite site – Brite Revolution. I know, I know a lot of the featured artists have come from Brite but they have such great artist there I just can’t help it. Jones is one of the many amazing singer/songwriters that are coming out of Nashville these days. Nashville is Music City and although I have never been there I’m pretty sure it will be my favorite place ever when I finally get myself there (anyone up for a road trip?).

Jones is originally from Georgia where he started his music career playing at Eddie’s Attic, which is where The Civil Wars recorded their live album. Soon Jones was encouraged to head to Nashville where he joined the musical community of independent artists. Jones began touring and writing with his fellow artists including the collaboration group Ten Out of Ten. TOT is a group of artists who tour and perform together whose members have included Joy Williams, Andrew Belle and Katie Herzig.

While touring, writing and recording three albums and one EP Jones has also had his music featured on several TV shows including Kyle XY, The Hills, Private Practice, One Tree Hill and Bones.

Jones’ most recent album is available on iTunes and his previous album you can download from the widget in the right hand column here for free if you tell  five friends or pay what you want.

Available albums from Matthew Perryman Jones
