The Jony James Blues Band (pronounced John-nie) dares to be different.
Throw any preconceived notions out the window and open your mind and ears
to the sounds of some truly inspired songwriting and tasty playing from
this Buffalo, NY trio. Jony’s original compositions are contemporary blues
rooted songs. Jony’s wonderfully inventive guitar skills are as good as
anyone on the current scene but the notes are played to serve the song.
And Jony’s songs are what sets him ahead of the blues pack where songs
have often become excuses for self-indulgent guitar solos. There’s plenty
of great guitar playing on this disc but dig the words and music, too.
Jony’s songs touch the world we live in today as well as anybody who is
writing in the blues genre. Jony’s blues are his own and he doesn’t play
it safe. The true essence of an important artist is to be yourself. Listen
and be challenged. And always dare to be different.
