Info for Bad Luck & The Blues
Laurence Jones follows up 2022's 'Destination Unknown' with brand new album 'Bad Luck & The Blues'. Refining his sound and returning with a trio, the new record showcases Laurence at his rawest, showcasing his virtuoso guitar talents and remaining faithful to his blues roots.
Acclaimed blues rocker Laurence Jones releases his new single ‘Bad Luck & The Blues’, a return to form with interplay of deep-rooted blues and classic rock n roll. Recorded at The Marshall Studio, mixed by Chris Sheldon (Jeff Beck, Foo Fighters, King King) and mastered at the legendary Abbey Road Studios by Christian Wright (Jack Bruce, Robin Trower, Ten Years After).
“Bad Luck & The Blues” is a sleek, contemporary power trio rocker that exhibits Jones’ tight rhythm chops and wailing lead work. His vocals are cool and confident, the rhythm section is energized and motivated, and the production is top-shelf. Jones has a modern edge to what he does that keeps everything he plays fresh and vital. The music video for the song is also nicely done and shows Jones getting all over his PRS with style and grace.
Jones’ latest effort is rip-snortin’, hard-rockin’ blues album with one eye on 1970’s classic hard rock, and its counterpart very much focused upon the here and now. ‘Bad Luck & The Blues’ is a love letter to hard hitting blues rock, with a concise, contemporary edge.
Refining his sound and returning as a power-trio that features long time bassist Jack Alexander Timmis (Virgil & The Accelerators) and new drummer Ash Sheehan (Glenn Hughes, Tony Iommi, The Twang), the new record sees Laurence at his rawest, showcasing his virtuoso guitar talents while remaining faithful to his blues roots.
“I started my career in a power-trio, and gradually moved away from that. Going back to those roots was an itch that I’d wanted to scratch for ages.” Jones explains. “Two of my biggest heroes were Gary Moore and Jimi Hendrix, and that’s the direction I wanted to go in, along with some more contemporary influences such as Queens of The Stone Age, Jack White, and Royal Blood. My main point of reference on this album was Robin Trower. I had been a fan for years, but I used lockdown to sink myself into his playing style and the tone he used.”
Laurence has shared stages with the likes of Status Quo, Sir Van Morrison, Sir Ringo Starr, the late Jeff Beck and Johnny Winter, Joe Bonamassa, Wishbone Ash, Glenn Hughes, and Vintage Trouble among many others. In 2017, Buddy Guy, who once likened Laurence to “a young Eric Clapton”, invited the youngster to join him onstage at the Holland International Blues Festival before of an audience of 15,000. Jones has also appeared at some of the world’s most prestigious venues, including the Royal Albert Hall in London and New York’s Carnegie Hall.
