People have said that my music reminds them of writers as incredibly diverse as Mose Allison, John Martyn, Jim Croce Ron Sexsmith and Bill Withers!— how good is that? I stared playing the blues back in the late 60's but since I've played country rock, funk, jazz and all sorts of stuff! A couple of friends described my music as 'soulful Americana'. Have recently recorded an album with producer Nigel Stonier (Thea Gilmore, Fairport Convention, Waterboys) on bass, guitars, keyboards and Ukulele, together with pedal steel player CJ Hillman - voted U.K. Americana musician of the year 2017 - and legendary drummer Paul Burgess (10cc, Jethro Tull, Chris Farlowe)
PS I've put my fee from £150 upwards as this site only allows you to register in one way whereas I can work as a solo artist, duo, trio or quartet. - tell me what you want and we can get it together! Same goes for the length of performance !
Rowland Jones has performed for Papillon Promotions on several occasions over the last few years. He has always been an absolute pleasure to work with on a professional level. In terms of performance I have been fortunate enough to see him as a solo artist, duo, and with a
full band set up: each ensemble offering something a little different to the listener. His vast knowledge of music, and years spent honing the craft mean that he has the skill and dexterity to effortlessly adapt to any given type of audience and venue size. His style has its foundations in the old style Blues, but is blended perfectly with a great awareness and understanding of the modern contemporary song and form.
Rowland Jones is a performer of the highest standard, making even the most sophisticated pieces seem so easy to play, and always a pleasure to hear.
