JW-JONES + MIKE ROSS
JW-Jones returns for a UK tour this November and December.
Since his first UK tour in spring of 2016, JW-Jones has released a new CD High Temperature that won the International Blues Challenge (via Blues Foundation in Memphis). It was named the Hot Shot Debut on the Billboard Top 10, and has been in the top two most-played roots music recordings on radio stations across Canada for ten weeks. Early last year, George Thorogood & The Destroyers’ management specifically requested Jones to open several of their tour dates, which included standing ovations at legendary venues such as Massey Hall in Toronto, and Ottawa’s National Arts Centre. Jones is a JUNO Award Nominee (the equivalent of the Grammy in USA), tours constantly, and is known for his high-energy live shows.
JW has released nine albums, and performed in twenty-three countries across four continents. In 2015/2016, JW played over one hundred shows per year, including being invited five times to perform alongside Buddy Guy, and twice with Woodstock legends, Canned Heat.
‘Acclaimed Nashville producer Colin Linden takes Jones into new territory with warm, analog-driven tones, and a wide-range of material. His evolution as a musician and vocalist shine through on this record like never before. Real songs, real playing by real people, and JW is the real deal.’ Chuck Leavell (The Rolling Stones)
