Born in Pennsylvania in 1973 and now a native of Nashville, TN, American singer-songwriter Matthew Perryman Jones is picking up fans across the nation. With albums such as Nowhere Else But Here in 2000, For the Road (EP) in 2003, Throwing Punches in the Dark in 2006 and Swallow the Sea in 2008, he has much experience under his belt.

Jones began his career in 1997, playing his first public performances at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, GA. His music is soothing and his words are a fusion of his life experiences and consequential emotions. Starting with a very Folk/American sound, he is branching out by adding more rock to his sound. This new rendition has proven a success and fans are liking it. Matthew’s music has since been featured in many shows such as One Tree Hill, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice and Bones.

In 2008, Matthew has teamed up again with producer Neilson Hubbard to produce a new LP entitled Swallow the Sea which is named after one of the ten songs included on the album. The album was released August 19, 2008. Matthew Perryman Jones is currently on tour with Ingrid Michaelson.

His song Save Me, from his newest album is one of my favorite. I hope you enjoy it!
