New local music Monday- Linus Jones


I wanted to start covering some local bands, out of my own area, so I put a call out on Twitter.  I got some responses and so I started a list of bands to investigate and give a little shout out to.  The first band that answered the call hails from North Carolina.  They are called Linus Jones and are about to release their first album called “40 Licks To The Center” on November 15, 2012.

The band describes themselves as “Purveyors of rockin’ blues & elektrified soul.”  They are certainly a blend of soul, blues and rock and roll.  The four piece band features a power trio, with singer/songwriter and harp player Danie Jones out front.  I am looking forward to the new album because I have only heard demos.  The demos certainly have some catchy stuff both in the melodies and the grooves.

This band gigs out a lot so you can check them out at their home page above or here on their Facebook page.
