Matthew Perryman Jones

Matthew Perryman JonesI recently stumbled across Matthew Perryman Jones on my musical travels.  To be honest, I’m not sure how I made it there, but I’m glad I did.  It was like finding a $5 bill in your coat pocket a year later or realizing you got 11 chicken nuggets instead of 10 at your favorite fast food joint (in my case Wendys.)  It was an unexpected treat.

His voice is easy on the ears and his songs have a quality similar to that of Rufus Wainwright. And I loves me some Rufus. If you’re looking for a singer-songwritery, adult alternative man of the hour, look no further than Matthew Perryman Jones.  It probably helps that he lives in one of the musical capitals of probably the world: Nashville, TN.  I mean, it’s the home of country music, not to mention the likes of some of our favorite artists including Andrew Ripp, Dave Barnes and Ben Rector (just to name a few.)

But don’t take my word for it.  Check out this super official video for “Save You” from Swallow the Sea.  It’s like, the real deal.
