Biography

“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.

Lyrics

Baby Blue

Written By: Jiggley Jones

Why are there skies of blue, why are all the flowers beautiful
How are you able to amaze me not even knowing who I am to you

Water moves
Taking a path that leads it where it needs to follow through
As long as you laugh and stay true
Then your life will flow as the rivers do

My arms will surround you
Nothing’s in your way, always remember
This takes my breath away
Just look at you, little wonder in a bundle

Water moves…

Miracles, they come around
Magic clouds bring the rain on down
Rivers flow
My baby blue, life has, it has a way to start… anew

Water moves…

Miracles…

…life will, life will, life will take ahold


Ain't That Alright

Written By: Jiggley Jones

Ain’t That Alright
Where are, where are you right now
I just wonder, where are you
Well ain’t that alright, ain’t that just fine
Really it’s only when I think about you
Think of that night, ain’t that alright, alright
Just the other day I thought about the time we had
I see your face shining through the winds of time
So what today, the sacred try, the wall, the way?
Could really use the sound of good advice
Where are you…
Well ain’t that alright…
I think you left a hole a mile wide
I climb the walls and hope to see the ocean tide
You let time and how I feel go by the way?
I hope to somehow get through the day
Where are you…
Well ain’t that alright, ain’t that just fine
Really you took my heart and ran away…
Well that’s yesterday, you know what they say…
Live for today…
