     Matthew Perryman Jones (born 1973) is an American singer-songwriter who currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee.

    Jones began his career as a singer-songwriter in 1997, playing his first public performances at Eddie's Attic in Decatur, Georgia. In 2000, Jones issued his first solo release, Nowhere Else But Here after moving to Nashville to pursue music full-time.

    In 2006 he released the album Throwing Punches in the Dark. Produced by Neilson Hubbard (Glen PhillipsGarrison Starr), the album was a departure from his Folk/Americana sound to something more Pop Rock.

    In 2007 Jones performed at the historic Alabama Theatre in Birmingham, Alabama for the 10 year celebration of the syndicated radio program, Reg's Coffee House, sharing the stage with Stoll VaughanJim James (My Morning Jacket) and Patty Griffin. At this show, Matthew first performed his songSave You which, after recording, would launch Jones onto the national scene with a high profile placement in the season finale of Kyle XY.

    In 2008, Jones teamed up with producer Neilson Hubbard to produce the album Swallow the Sea. Released August 19, 2008, this album that included the single Save You, gained traction in television and saw a growing number of placements in North American prime time television through 2012. The song's 2009 music video features Jaimie Alexander, the actress who portrayed Jessi on the TV series Kyle XY.

    In 2010, Jones released two EPs. One official release,The Distance in Between, and another unofficial digital release Crash, Boom, Bang which was released exclusively through Noisetrade. Crash, Boom, Bang was a collection of songs either that didn't make the cut on Swallow the Sea or weren't finished enough to be included.

    Jones released his third full length record, Land of the Living, on May 29, 2012. According to American Songwriter, the album was funded through Kickstarter by his fans and was inspired by high art and philosophy, such as "Vincent Van Gogh’s letters to his brother, Theo van GoghFederico Garcia Lorca’s idea of Duende (a heightened sense of emotion, expression, and authenticity in music), and the writings of Persian poet and philosopher Rumi."
