Jacob Jones has spent his entire life on the move and so between alt-country music and his GQ-approved KEEP ON MOVIN! Dance Party DJ sets, so pursuing a life of a troubadour wasn’t quite the stretch for him as it might be for others. Having lived in various Indiana, Kentucky and Georgia towns by the age of ten and spending a brief stint of time in New York City before recently making Nashville his home, Jones has been pursuing Americana rock ‘n roll in earnest for over half a decade now.
Thus far Jones has found success with his LP Bound For Glory and EP Volume One EP, consecutively. “Jacob’s brand of whiskey-fueled, hangover loomin’ country tunes (chased with rock and roll roots) makes for a raucous good time at his live show and supreme listening on his self-released LP,” said American Songwriter.
But this January 29th 2013, Jones will be releasing his next full length, Good Timin’ In Waynetown. This record combines the alt-country tones of Jason Isbell and the raw rock sensibilities of Chuck Berry to make for the sounds of the perfect southern gentleman.
Whether its an anthem about a night out on the town like the title track, a rollicking call for more good times on “Play It Loud, Ray!” or a swoon worthy song to his sweetheart on “My Girl Is Sweeter Than Yours” Jacob Jones knows how to, as his website’s headline suggests, “honky tonk yourself to death.”
