The Matt Jones Group is a new duet on the Gospel music scene, hailing from the great state of Texas. Matt Jones and Lisa Dye have come from different Gospel music backgrounds to begin a new ministry together.

Vivian Belknap, writer for SGN Scoops, was at the Denton Gospelfest a few months back. Vivian had the privilege to hear this duo in one of their first

appearances together. Vivian wrote, “The concert began with Lisa Dye, a local singer from Grand Prairie Texas, the daughter of Glen Dye, who opened with ‘The Holy Hills of Heaven,’ and ‘This Ship Was Made to Sail.’ Then Matt Jones, a member of the King’s River trio from Ft. Worth, Texas, joined her on stage. Not only did they sing a duet, but he also did a fine job on the keyboard.”

We hope you enjoy this opportunity to get to know the Matt Jones Group!
SGN: Tell us about how The Matt Jones Group began in ministry?
MJG: Matt sang lead for a group KingsRiver for the last 10 years, and it was during that time that he studied the craft and learned as much as possible. As seasons of ministry change, Matt felt called to start his own group. He teamed up with good friend Lisa Dye to form The Matt Jones Group.
Matt Jones GroupSGN: We would love to hear a funny “road story.”
MJG: We were singing with a few other groups one evening and the group before us was singing and their emcee put his set list on top of our track machine. During a moment in their set he touched that paper and started about 10 different tracks at the same time. We thought the Lord was coming back!
SGN: Please share a little about each member.
MJG: Lisa Dye is carrying on a tradition of traveling and singing but is currently writing her own history in gospel music. She lives in Grand Prairie, TX with her two dogs, Abby and Maddi.

Matt Jones had a dream to sing gospel music and that dream came true in 2005 after graduating high school. He is now stepping out on faith and trusting God as he puts his very own group out on the road to sing gospel music and share the good news of Jesus. He lives in Aledo, TX.
