JUNO Award Nominee, Canadian singer/guitarist JW-Jones tours constantly, and is known for his high-energy show that keeps getting hotter!
Jones has released eight albums, performed in twenty-two countries and four continents, and averages over one hundred shows per year. The 2015 release ‘Belmont Boulevard’ hit #9 on Billboard sales charts in the United States, held the #1 position on Canadian roots radio stations for 13 weeks, and was nominated for JUNO and Maple Blues Awards in Canada. JW was invited to join Buddy Guy on stage four times and Canned Heat twice in the same year. Canadian-born Hollywood actor Dan Aykroyd, known for his Blues Brothers persona “Elwood Blues,” has called JW’s group an “amazing blues band.”
2016 NEWS: George Thorogood & The Destroyers’ management specifically requested JW-Jones to open for several of their spring tour dates, including Massey Hall in Toronto. The band received a standing ovation at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. Jones added three new countries to his list with a successful UK tour, and a new release is coming later this year, produced by Colin Linden in Nashville.
