JW JONES

JW JONES

Billboard Top 10 Blues Artist, IBC Winner and JUNO Nominee, Canadian singer/guitarist JW-Jones is known for his high-energy shows! The improv magic you hear on Jones’ new album (his 10th), Live, is the spark that has awakened new sonic frontiers for the veteran Maple Blues Awardwinning bluesman. Produced with 2018 Grammy Winner Zach Allen (for his work on Taj Mahal & Keb Mo’s ‘TajMo’), Live is raw, real, and from the heart – an album for the ages that captures the JW-Jones lightning in a bottle. With the last JW-Jones studio project, the Colin Linden-produced ‘High Temperature’, capturing the coveted Memphis Blues Foundation’s International Blues Challenge honours, the frequent resident of Billboard’s Top 10 Blues charts and roots radio favourite continues to accelerate his career momentum to new heights, whether it’s as a personally-requested sit-in with the likes of blues legend Buddy Guy (6 times), opening for blues-rock icons Johnny Winter and George Thorogood or entertaining thrilled audiences in 23 countries and four continents. Buddy Guy says “This young man is one of the people who will keep the blues alive”. Eager to live up to this endorsement from the world’s most famous living bluesman, Jones is excited to bring his music to generations to come.

BILL DURST

BILL DURST

Durst is one of the unsung heroes of the Canadian blues scene, a guitarist, singer and songwriter who deftly borrows from various periods and styles of the blues tradition. He puts it all together with unapologetic exuberance, finding particular finesse with a steel slide.

KAT KINGS

KAT KINGS

One gets the sense that Toronto-based vocalist and guitarist Kevin McQuade, leader of The Kat Kings, is a pretty down-to-earth guy. As composer of all but one tune on the band’s debut (with one co-writing credit), he delivers solid, unpretentious blue-collar rockers with lots of soul and hints of the blues here and there.

BLUE MULES

BLUE MULES

“Like fast moving freight train barreling down the tracks, with its smokestack spewing fire encrusted cinders, churning with sparking steel wheels and howling like an unholy whistle, hold the hell on it’s gonna be a bare knuckle ride. The Blue Mules deliver a distinct style with varied flavors to each song from raw blues to countrified rock, tying it all together like the steam engine stoker shoveling coal into the furnace keeping it full steam ahead. The Blue Mules personify Solid Blues with a Powerful Kick...”
