Matthew Perryman Jones

Berklee's Cafe 939 announces the return of Matthew Perryman Jones, who previously played at Cafe 939 with the Ten Out of Tenn tour. His latest album, Swallow the Sea, was released in August, and several singles have been featured on Private Practice, Kyle XY, One Tree Hill, and other shows.

Joshua James has been writing and singing songs for only six short years, but the 25-year-old heartland poet has the perspective of a wise, old soul. On his second album, Build Me This, the follow-up to his critically acclaimed The Sun Is Always Brighter, produced by industry veteran Shannon Edgar, James expands his musical palette to foreboding, doom-laden hard rock. His music progresses from folkish harmonies to country twang, world beats, and Southern-home rock while further exploring themes of spiritual searching.

$10/general admission, $8/students
