    Taking Blues to New Places with R&B;, Soul, and Urban Style: “Exquisite Modern and Traditional Blues and Neo-Soul by one of the most talented artists on the contemporary scene. Billy Jones is a young, genius-level, totally charismatic veteran who shows all the signs of becoming as big or bigger than Buddy Guy. This young man has enormous talents. I recently witnessed a 2-song DVD by Billy and his band that just added to my excitement regarding this on-stage dynamo who boasts movie-star good looks, a Huge voice, great guitar-playing and a Hot repertoire of tunes. All tracks were written by Billy …and what a voice! With Billy Jones showing so many talents and covering every single genre close to Blues, the Man is a ‘can’t miss’ star-in-the-making…No wait, he’s not in-the-making… He’s made! If a major U.S. label doesn’t scoop up this high-level Blues genius within the next 3-4 months then we’re all in trouble! But, whatever happens, No One is going to keep a lid on Billy Jones. He’s off on-a-rocket folks and we certainly need a Big Blues talent like his.” “One of the very Best Authentic Modern Blues and Soul albums in recent memory.” Real Blues Magazine http://www.realbluesmagazine.com/
