A performing songwriter by trade, Matthew Perryman Jones is actually a seeker, at heart. With each entry in his discography, his musical and moral compass points toward an artistic horizon he has yet to explore. Songs from across his catalog have been featured in dozens of film and TV placements, and tours have taken him across the U.S. and abroad to share stages with legends like Shawn Colvin and Patty Griffin, as well as the Ten Out of Tenn songwriter collective of which he is a part.
For this Noisetrade exclusive, Matthew is offering his EP Cold Answer, originally released in 2015. Never before offered on Noisetrade, Cold Answer will be available to download for a limited time only.
Now, Matthew is embarking on what might be the ultimate test of his inner compass: making his fifth album with only himself, a guitar, some basic recording gear, and genius loci — the spirit of place. As he chases the ever-retreating horizon, Jones will stop, listen, and capture when and what the spirit of each place calls out to him.
Pledge now via the PledgeMusic button at the top of this page to follow along on Matthew’s trip, collaborate with him on places he should travel next, and help him make this project a reality.
