Matthew Perryman Jones

Save YouMatthew Perryman Jones. Swallow the Sea.

Last.Fm Bio:
“An articulate songwriter with a versatile and gritty tenor voice — a combination that has drawn comparisons to everyone from Jeff Buckley to Leonard Cohen — Matthew Perryman Jones has the touch of a poet and the narrative reach of a short story writer, making the best of his songs deeply resonant.” -Steve Leggett (Rovi)

Having just finished his first full length album since 2008, Land of the Living was produced by Cason Cooley (Katie Herzig) and is set to be released on May 29th. This record was fan funded through Kickstarter and raised over $26K in 1 month, 30% over his asking goal. This no doubt conveys an enthusiasm among fans of MPJ’s music. Kickstarter backers who received an advance download of the record are already touting this to be Jones’ best work to date. Matthew holds nothing back on this record and delivers his most emotional and musically compelling work yet.

Jones began playing out in 1997, debuting at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, GA, but he soon relocated to Nashville. In 2000 he released Nowhere Else But Here followed by an EP, For the Road, in 2003. Released in 2006, Throwing Punches in the Dark was produced by Neilson Hubbard (Glen Phillips, Garrison Star) and met with high critical praise. Jones re-teamed with Hubbard for Swallow the Sea, which was released in 2008. His music has found a home on Film and TV with over 30 placements on shows such as Grey’s Anatomy, Bones, One Tree Hill, Pretty Liars & Private Practice.

Joshua Radin is an acoustic singer/songwriter from Cleveland, Ohio. When close friend and actor/film-maker Zach Braff heard a demo of Radin’s song “Winter,” he was immediately interested, and got the song onto the show Scrubs in the episode “My Screw Up.” The song received an overwhelmingly positive response and gave Radin substantial exposure with the show’s demographic. The songs “Today”, “Closer”, “Don’t Look Away” and “These Photographs” were also used on the show.

Since, Joshua’s songs have been further featured on the FOX Television drama North Shore, Bones and the ABC medical drama Grey’s Anatomy. His song “Star Mile” is on The Last Kiss movie soundtrack. Most recently his song “What If You” was featured on the Catch and Release soundtrack. He also has a couple tracks on the Adam soundtrack, including “When I Find You.”

The album “We Were Here” was released in 2006, containing many of the songs featured on the various television shows. The album is made up of heavily acoustic indie Folk/Pop, and is especially reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel, Elliott Smith, Jode Gannon, Damien Rice and Iron & Wine. – Excerpt from Last.Fm
