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. 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 and has released over 7 albums to date. Jones’ songs have also been featured in television shows including Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Bones, Pretty Little Liars, NY Med, Flash Point, One Tree Hill, The Hills, Eli Stone and more. In addition to Jones’ own headline tours, he has shared the bill with Katie Herzig, Matthew Mayfield, and Joshua James and has opened for such artists as Ingrid Michaelson, Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin and Paula Cole. Jones is also an original member of the nationally acclaimed Nashville collaborative artist group “Ten Out of Tenn”.



Being in the music industry for nearly 15 years, Crystal is no stranger to writing, performing, and recording, having played across the US and Western Europe in the last 5 years.  Crystal is a frequent songwriter, with not only her own original writing but also collaborations with #1 Country writer and CMA award winner Don Poythress, Dove Award winning songwriter Jennie Lee Riddle, Nashville songwriter and producer, Michael Farren, and others. Since the release of her 2011 project, "Love Wins", the response has been phenomenal, and Crystal has since been a featured performer at the  Sundance Film Festival, SXSW, The Wildflower Singer/Songwriter Festival, Good Morning Texas, Texas Independent Music Expo, and many more. Her newest release, "Live At LoneStar Wine Cellars" can be found on iTunes, Amazon, and all other digital music outlets.


Over a decade ago, Sean Carter was overwhelmed with the desire to create. He has a raw and unique way to convey story, passion, truth, and struggle through music, lyric, and soundscape. His latest full length release “The Telling” is a spiritual narrative of questioning and responding, confessing, glorifying the mystery of God, wrestling through life's circumstances, and holding the Creator in genuine highest regard. Sean’s single “Passion Song” was named “GMA Immerse 2012 Songwriter of The Year” was featured on Worship Leader Song Discovery, CCLITV, GMCTV and has been used in churches across the United states and over 20 countries worldwide.
