19 COUNTRIES, 4 CONTINENTS, 7 CDs

Canadian singer/guitarist JW-Jones tours constantly, and is known for his high-energy show that keeps getting hotter! 

Guitar World Magazine featured a CD called Guitar Masters Vol. 2 that put Jones alongside guitar stars B.B. King, Jimmy Page, and Carlos Santana among others, which led him to an endorsement deal with Gibson guitars.

On his latest release, 'Seventh Hour', Jones teamed up with multi-Juno award winning artist/producer, Steve Dawson.  Previous releases have featured legendary guests Hubert Sumlin (Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters) and David "Fathead" Newman (Ray Charles); heavy-hitters Kim Wilson (Fabulous Thunderbirds) and Charlie Musselwhite; two of the most innovative guitarists of our time, Little Charlie Baty and Junior Watson; and Canadian billboard favorite, Colin James. Jones has cut records from Hollywood to Sun Studios in Memphis.

While keeping one foot firmly planted in the roots he came from, this Maple Blues Award winner is always pushing the boundaries by creating songs and a live music experience that is appealing to a younger audience, which is the most vital way to ensure the evolution of blues and roots music.  What's the main ingredient?  A world-class performance that exhilarates audiences everywhere.

Musicians that tour with Jones; Jamie Holmes (drums) and the heavy grooves of Laura Greenberg (bass) always add a powerful energy to the stage. Charlie Musselwhite says "JW has done it again. Another fine CD of great tunes, guitar playing and arrangements. He sings his blues with authority."

In early 2014, JW toured the US opening for Johnny Winter playing sold-out shows, and will open for one of his biggest influences, Jimmie Vaughan this year.  His last few CDs have hit #1 on B.B. King's Bluesville on Sirius-XM Radio in the U.S.A., and Jones continues to win over audiences (up to 40,000) across the globe with his incredible live performances.
