Artist: Laney Jones

CD: Golden Road

Genera: Folk, Americana, Blues  

 

 

 

Steeped in the traditions of folk, jazz, and rock and roll, Laney Jones mixes a musical cocktail with a vintage flavor that’s all her own. Honing her craft and effortlessly welcoming stage presence in coffeehouses, speakeasies, and concert venues across the United States, this scrappy Americana singer-songwriter is making a name for herself as a fresh, lyrically creative artist. Her distinctive voice has been described as “a mix of lemon, molasses, gin and gunpowder*,” mellifluous and smooth but brimming with passion. This latest CD entitled “golden Road” was released in 2013. The CD takes flight with the methodical “Broken Hearts” a methodical intro ditty that serves up impassioned vocal feel from Jones meshed with impressive Harmonica served up against well placed Americana fretwork, earthy musical touches against a hooky, grand slam chorus. Track 2 “Devil Down” downshifts a bit with its methodical piano driven intro eventually lending itself into an impressive “Gold Standard” ballad that flows and ebbs its way through to emotional fruition. Track 3 “”Black Coffee” keeps thing moving in the right direction with its infectious melody, steady flowing rhythm and heartfelt/thought provoking message. The CD makes a great first impression dashing out 3 solid tracks in a row. I would classify this music as Alternative Folk, with a dash of Americana and even Alternative Folk. Also present are unique elements of what I would call Alternative-Psychedelic Soul. All in all the CD touches a wide range of musical styles. Read Review
