Event Description

The Real Matt Jones is a singer/songwriter that looks to the idiosyncrasies in life and magnifies them to the point where listeners say, "Oh yeah, I can see that." Matt is originally from Albuquerque, NM and has performed in numerous areas all over the United States and in Canada. He would like his brand of light-hearted pop/rock to be challenging yet palatable in the ears of his listeners, and for them to be able to whistle his tunes the rest of the day. 

The emphasis in Matt's music is on songwriting, vocal ability, and rhythmic nuances. While Matt's songs are resoundingly pop-oriented, he likes to entice listeners with interesting arrangements and subject matter. These elements tie together to make music that has great replay value, and is easy to remember. 

Matt is currently touring with his latest musical effort, Passerby. Matt is a two-time New Mexico Music Industry Award nominee; in 2005 for Best Mainstream Rock song for his song Magic recorded with guitarist/producer Larry Mitchell (Tracy Chapman), and in 2006 for Best Rock/Alternative Song for his song Hang Around. Matt also played in the showcase for the 2006 Durango Songwriters Expo in Santa Barbara, and was also a featured performer at the 2004 Expo. Matt has shared the stage with a number of different artists including Paolo Nutini, Brett Dennen, Sister Hazel, Michael Martin Murphey and Matt has even opened for the great Rod Stewart. . .is this the Matt Jones for you?
