British Blues Award newcomer of the year 2014 & 15. “A Star in the making – Jools Holland”
The Laurence Jones Band are turning heads and making jaws drop, with their take-no-prisoners, incendiary live set. They put the “power” into “power trio,” with their modern-day blues rock with an edge.
British blues artist Laurence Jones is often labeled “the future of the blues,” but this has to be factually incorrect, doesn’t it? He’s HERE and NOW – socking it to audiences around the world. Blowin’ the roof off every time.
Several major awards. Selling serious numbers of his four solo albums. His fourth “Take Me High” just released – produced by legendary producer Mike Vernon. Does that sound like someone working at being “something” and “somebody” in the future? He’s not practicing. It’s not a rehearsal. He’s DEADLY serious and damn good at what he does.
Hailed as “one to watch” as a teenager by the blues media, concert/festival bookers, blues fans and various guitar stars alike, young Laurence really has come of age. The blues cub has become a man with a plan. Turning heads and making jaws drop with his take-no-prisoners, incendiary live set and his stunning records.
Laurence and his crack band – Laurence Jones on vocals and guitars, Bennett Holland on keyboards, Greg Smith on bass and Phil Wilson on drums – put the power into their modern day blues rock with an edge. He sings, he plays and he writes – a triple threat – and he does so like a veteran of three times his age. But absolutely no ego. His feet firmly on the ground.
*** LAURENCE WILL BE JOINED BY SUPPORT ACT “RAINBREAKERS” ***
Rainbreakers are a four piece outfit from Shrewsbury. They have been hailed as one of the freshest new sounds in the UK blues rock and soul circuit. The band have developed a distinctive sound that embodies a fusion of dynamic musical elements that bridges the gap between Blues, Rock, Pop and Soul.
