Matthew Perryman Jones / Matthew Mayfield / Callaghan
September 21, 2012
Matthew Perryman Jones is a product of the '80s, and his musical taste is shaped largely by bands like the Pixies, REM, U2, Echo and the Bunnymen, and other underground bands of that time. Jones was born near Philadelphia and relocated to Atlanta at the age of 11. He began writing songs in high school, where he also formed his first band, and was 15 when they recorded their first five-song demo (produced by Indigo Girls producer Don McCollister). His songs have been featured on TV shows such as Kyle XY and Grey's Anatomy.

Matthew Mayfield's songs range from quiet, folky ballads to riff-driven rock'n'roll anthems. He decided to go solo in 2008 and recorded The Fire EP in August 2008. 7 more EP’s were self-released over the course of the next year and a half and a couple of songs were even placed on Grey’s Anatomy and made it to number 1 on the iTunes singer/songwriter charts a few times. He has just released his second full-length album, "A Banquet For Ghosts", last May.

Born in Boston, Lincolnshire to a musical family, Callaghan was classically trained on flute from age 6, then gravitated toward singing and playing piano. By 14 she was writing songs, and started trekking to London to record with various producers. At 18 Callaghan relocated to London permanently to live with her sister (whose flat was so tiny, the singer slept under the kitchen table), while recording a number of independent EPs and playing all over the city, at spots like the Bedford, Regal Room, Royal National Theatre, and 100 Club. A long-time Mullins fan, Callaghan contacted him in 2009 through MySpace while seeking a producer, and he agreed to a rare collaboration. An initial recording trip to Atlanta yielded three songs, prompting her life-changing relocation there in 2010 to finish the full-length.
