Fantastically dirty and raw, Jones’s playing is nothing short of exemplary, the smoking solos sliding easily between battleship-sized riffs. – Classic Rock
“It’s quite simple: if you like your power trios, you’ll love this.” –Blues In Britian
“This is blues-rock, with the emphasis on the rock! Think Hendrix mixed with Moore, with a sprinkling of Rival Sons.” – ERB Magazine
“Bad Luck & The Blues sees Laurence Jones bridge the gap between the modern design of his PRS SE Silver Sky and the throwback blues tones of Stevie Ray Vaughan et al. Expect swashbuckling pentatonic licks aplenty, and infectious solos” –Guitar World
Laurence Jones brand new album ‘BAD LUCK & THE BLUES’ is out now via Marshall Records. Available on limited edition transparent red LP, fans can buy the record – HERE. Jones will celebrate the release at a very special album release show at London’s illustrious OMEARA on Friday, September 22nd, 2023. Tickets and more info – HERE.
Refining his sound and returning as a power-trio, the new record sees Jones at his rawest, showcasing his virtuoso guitar talents while remaining faithful to his blues roots. It’s a love letter to hard hitting blues rock, with a concise, contemporary edge.
Recorded at The Marshall Studio, mixed by Chris Sheldon (Jeff Beck, Foo Fighters, Radiohead) and mastered at the legendary Abbey Road Studios by Christian Wright (Jack Bruce, Robin Trower, Ten Years After) and a true return to form.
