This from the bio page at http://www.laurencejonesmusic.com/:
Laurence Jones and his Band play a blend of Blues and Rock with a groovy and catchy modern edge. Laurence released his first professional album “Thunder In The Sky” in June 2012.
Laurence has been featured on, BBC Radio 2, had reviews in Classic Rock Magazine, The Blues Magazine, Blues Matters, Get ready to rock and has even featured on Reverb T.V series where he played 3 live songs.
Get ready to Rock Magazine gave the album a 5/5***** rating “Laurence Jones is a wise musical head on young shoulders and ‘Thunder in the Sky’ is an excellent start to a very promising career and worth five stars”.
Classic Rock magazine quoted Laurence as “Blues Rocks youngest Talent” and was featured on the “Blues Fury C.D along with Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Popa Chubby and many more.
Laurence began playing the classical guitar at the age of 8 and has gone on to achieve grade 8 distinction. In 2006 he started to play the electric guitar and was influenced by Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Tony Mcphee, B.B King, Gary More and Albert Collins.
Laurence and the band have done over 150 gigs already this year and have even played in Holland at the Blues Express Festival. They have taken the Blues scene in the U.K by surprise. There is a big buzz about this young man “Laurence Jones is head boy of the new blues breed” quoted Classic Rock Mag.
There’s something about young, fresh talent with a positive vibe that lacks pretense. Here’s a couple live clips. Like I’ve said here before, give me a band that can perform live as a 3-piece and deliver a cohesive product and I’ll show you true talent. Simple, honest good music. It’s hard not to like these guys.
Enjoy, and TURN IT UP!
