International Blues Challenge winner (2017), JUNO Award Nominee and Billboard Top 10 Blues artist JW-Jones tours constantly, and is known for his high-energy live shows.
Jones has released nine albums, and performed in twenty-three countries and four continents. In 2015/2016, JW played over 100 shows per year, including being invited five times to perform alongside Buddy Guy, and twice with Woodstock legends, Canned Heat.
Last year, George Thorogood & The Destroyers’ management specifically requested Jones to open several of their tour dates including standing ovations at Massey Hall and Ottawa’s National Arts Centre.
JW’s latest release ‘High Temperature’ was named the Hot Shot Debut on the Billboard Top 10. From the liner notes: “Acclaimed Nashville producer Colin Linden takes Jones into new territory with warm, analog-driven tones, and a wide-range of material. His evolution as a musician and vocalist shine through on this record like never before. Real songs, real playing by real people, and JW is the real deal.” – Chuck Leavell (The Rolling Stones)
