Biography / EPK / Music Reviews:

..something is growing deep down in the Mid-South Mississippi Delta. ..long thought to be extinct.
..witness the resurrection and reinvention of a rare species.
"..the return of the authentic american bluesman."

"..these excellent recordings combine blues, funk & southern soul with taste and class resulting in an actual urban sound, perfect to attract new generations of blues lovers. ..powerful
songs. ..amazing punch and good rhythm. ...Jones’ voice and guitar work shine like a dazzling star!"

"While I adore more traditional blues artists, it was just so damned nice to be able to listen to something that speaks eloquently in the tradition of the older artists, and yet manages to bring something new and funky to the table."

"Billy Jones brings back the Thrill. No one who I can think of has taken a truly contemporary look at traditional blues with the musical and lyrical intensity of Billy Jones. A refreshing blast of the really great sound of Healing Blues, Jazz, Funk Music. Loaded with Rich Blues Tradition. B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Even Johnny Winter Flavors. I'd recommend his music to any avid blues listener and I look forward to hearing more from the reclusive Billy Jones. This guy is the real deal and this is a great album!"

"Billy Jones is one of the ‘good guys’ who is truly interested in advancing and extending ‘Great Soul Music' from the 'Ancient to the Future’ and making sure that it is available for future generations. As such he is one of my personal musical heroes. We don’t have enough artists like him and hopefully he is going to inspire others.
Updating the blues for the 21st century is not an easy matter... Billy Jones has managed it.
Think Bobby Womack with Curtis Mayfield's social conscience and you are getting close.
Perhaps the most important thing to note is that his sound is more acceptable to modern ears and maybe that will get more people to listen to his message.
This is a fine, soulful album that packs a poignant wallop. The message is deep and heartfelt. It is lyrically-inspired Contemporary Rhythm & Blues."
