"If you're looking for good melodic alternative country rock that touches the soul, i would recommend picking up this album. His music is top notch! Sit back and listen and find yourself in a place of comfort, clarity and deep thinking."
- O.L. Easterling, Album Reviews (Aug 02, 2013) - O.L. Easterling, Album Reviews (Aug 02, 2013)


"Jiggley Jones is a storyteller. A hybrid of indie, folk, blues and country. Good production, lyrical content and instrumentation. Light vocals sprinked throughout. An ambient sound that's great for camping or a peaceful day on the beach. This artist's unique sound and his ability to be a griot has landed him a spot on our 360 Watch List. Can't wait to see which direction this artist goes in next?!!" - 360 Magazine


“The one thing that really stood out to me about these tracks is the fact that Jones’ vocals kind of had a Tom Petty-like texture to them…From hearing No Spring Chicken, I can tell that Jones has talent and experience in the music business.” - AeschTunes


Jones presents a nice piece of musical art in this EP. I expect to see his name in the music news more often. - Digital Rodeo


“With his, ‘No Spring Chicken’ EP Jiggley Jones offers up just enough music to wet your appetite and leave you wanting more of its musical morsels of goodness.” - CW's Place


"Jones’ musical portraits are certainly worth taking a look at" - The Music Universe


"Here’s an album that even though the genre section says Americana and Country, there’s a lot of rock’n’roll vibe in it that will blow your mind in a pretty passive and subtle way...beautiful and inspiring. " - Vents Magazine


"No Spring Chicken” covers enough variety (the spice of life) to remind you of bands like The Beatles - John Talk Radio


"Seasoned singer-songwriter and guitarist Jiggley Jones recently released his very first solo project No Spring Chicken. This four-song EP is a short but sweet sampling of his brand of alt-country tinged, acoustic Americana. The variety displayed in his songwriting explains how he has been able to entertain audiences at such diverse venues as New York’s CBGB’s, Philadelphia’s Chestnut Cabaret and The Woodbine Inn in New Jersey." - Examiner.com


I love the versatility in these songs, there's definitely something for everyone!!
- Triplestrand Promotions/Dixie McCorkell


"Grounded, a blended and unique style of his own, and extremely kind in nature. Accomplished in his own right, goal orientated and truly just a wonderful man in my eyes. I will be watching to see how well he progresses." - Cin's Chat Corner


"Honesty and heartfelt, almost raw, emotion in the lyrics on his tracks." - Country Music News Blog


"A little James Taylor and a little Jackson Browne...kick back and listen to this and let it kind of take over your mood." - Country Music Life


A Coatesville country-music crooner will debut his new music video Monday night. The video, shot over several weeks in Chester and Lancaster Counties, was directed by Jiggley Jones and Robert Buzzard Jr... - Coatesville Times

Bio

“His sound is so huge, it seems like it is everywhere and is as much coming to him as from him. He appears to be drawing in the sound while drawing in the listener.” A quote from former manager George Grauer, and a great description of the musical attitude that encompasses the debut release from singer/songwriter Jiggley Jones.

Now under the professional direction of MTS Management Group and Michael Stover, who says “ Jiggley has that one-of-a-kind sound that I look for in an artist. His songs will touch you and move you with their beautiful lyrics and melodic strength.”

Now let’s not let the word “debut” fool you though. Just like the title of this 4 song EP, “No Spring Chicken”, Jiggley himself has lived. “Lets face it, I’m not 18 anymore and thank God for that”, says Jones. “I’m no longer coming from a place that I have to in order to fit in, I’m coming from a place that is different because that is what I’ve become. No tattoos, no piercings, just music, strong and true, music that paints a picture.”

However you want to look at this picture, whether it’s Americana, Wide Open Country, or acoustic whatever, this artist represents life, hope, and human nature as only a seasoned person can see it. The Top 5 Roots Music Report release (#3, Americana/Roots Country, #4 True Country) starting with the overwhelming strength of “Baby Blue”, a deep celebration of a new born life, to “Welcome Home” with it’s ability to remind you how comforting the idea of home can be, to track three, a fun hillbilly party called “Ain’t That Alright’” (IBA/CMG chart, #67), “No Spring Chicken” covers enough variety (the spice of life) to remind you of bands like The Beatles. The final track really takes variety to the next level, being an early Christmas release called “Christmas 365”. This song is full of holiday reminders and touches on the idea that if Christmas was all year round then would it lose it’s special place in one’s heart. On the other hand, if we treated everyday like Christmas would life be a better experience all around.

Jiggley Jones, the project, came about in late 2007. Jiggley, whether alone or a member of various bands in the past has written or co-written well over 100 songs. His experience has taken him through various phases and musical endeavors including a stint during his younger years working in entertainment public relations in Los Angeles. With some success on college radio, Jones was also, as a member of a band called “Q”, involved with soundtrack projects on select MTV shows such as The Dennis Rodman Show, Cindy Crawford’s “House of Style”, and the reality show Road Rules. His band was also used in the AON Films movie “Tainted Love”, directed by Mathew Ross. All these successes were accomplished while under the professional direction of industry representatives like N.O. Management based in London, England as well as Magic Music Management and Peter Baron Productions in New York.

More currently he has worked with Nashville producer Terry Wendt, a former bandleader for Shania Twain. For this new release though, he has teamed up with LA based producer Chris Tristram. His live shows have taken him to Nashville and this year’s CMA Festival where he performed at BB King’s Blues Club, as well as other top notch venues such as The Hard Rock Café in Philly, The Bitter End in NYC, and The World Café in Wilmington, Delaware.
