Small Town Jones
Small Town (Jim) Jones and Dave Little have played together as musicians since their early college days.
Clearly the chemistry of this pairing together with Jim’s songwriting and Daves incredible musicianship has led them on to forge the sound that has been described as honest, emotional glimpses of moments caught in song and played with simplicity, sincerity and soul
emotional. Described by some as Acoustic, folk – Americana Small Town Jones have released 4 albums to date all to much acclaim. Playing Radio 2’s Dermot O Learys Saturday session twice and receiving numerous 4 & 5 star reviews in the top music press.
As well as touring the UK & Ireland Small Town Jones have also played numerous support slots with the likes of The Kinks legend Ray Davies, Ethan Johns, Damien Jurado and Sara Watkins to name a few.
While looking for new ideas and inspiration, Jones is currently playing a handful of selected gigs throughout the year while focusing on creating the next project which will be out later on in 2022.
* 5 Stars – “Sky down to the ground is a breathtaking album full of subtle storytelling, sparse yet effective instrumentation and dreamy melodies!” – MAVERICK
* 4 STARS – “Jones has more in tune with the folk-rock of early John Martyn, Questing for hope, love and warmth rather than succumbing to despair and loss” – Q
“Songs of unpretentious honesty – like a British Ron Sexsmith” – UNCUT
“Wilco style tales of lost and lonesome outriders” – MOJO
