JW-JONES – SEVENTH HOUR
Canada’s Top Touring Bluesman, JW-Jones is moving up with a boundary breaking CD.
On his 7th release, aptly titled ‘Seventh Hour’, Jones has teamed up with multi-Juno award winning artist/producer, Steve Dawson, to mix the album.
Previous releases have featured legendary guests Hubert Sumlin (Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters) and David “Fathead” Newman (Ray Charles); heavy-hitters Kim Wilson (Fabulous Thunderbirds) and Charlie Musselwhite; two of the most innovative guitarists of our time, Little Charlie Baty and Junior Watson; and Canadian billboard favorite, Colin James. Jones has cut records from Hollywood to Sun Studios in Memphis.
Guitar World Magazine featured a CD called ‘Guitar Masters Vol. 2’ that put Jones alongside guitar stars B.B. King, Jimmy Page, and Carlos Santana among others, and he recently landed an endorsement deal with Gibson guitars.
After performing in 17 countries, 4 continents, and releasing 6 critically acclaimed discs, it’s time for a change. No famous guests. No fancy studios. This is JW-Jones and his band doing what they do best – right at home, recorded in J-Dub’s living room by his go-to engineer for the last decade, Jason Jaknunas. Tracked on a crisp fall weekend, this cool release is sure to stir up some discussion about where his music is going as he soars in a vibrant new direction.
Shattering visual boundaries is also an integral part of this project. Art director and commercial photographer Mitch Lenet (Panasonic, Subaru, Bell), has developed a concept for this package with cutting edge technology that is guaranteed to turn heads in the music and fashion world.
While keeping one foot firmly planted in the roots he came from, Jones believes that appealing to a younger audience is the most important way to ensure the evolution of blues-based music.
