"Local CD'S"

Singer-songwriter Kim Jones, a native New Yorker, has put down roots in Denver, but if ROAD DREAMS is any indication, she's got traveling on her mind. Several of the CD's tunes deal with voyages of one sort or another, including "Journeymen", which tells the immigration tale of her great-grandparents, and "Let's Sail Away" a title that wasn't chosen at random. Jones' lyrics aren't the freshest around (she relies too heavily on familiar imagery), but she is blessed with a warm , smoky voice and a first-rate group of local accompanists-producer/keyboardist Lance Bendiksen and Subdudes vet John Magnie head the list- whose playing is rich and inviting. With better material and a little help from her friends, Jones could be going places.

Bio

New York native Kim Jones is a singer/songwriter based in Denver, Colorado where she
performs in coffee houses, festivals, and other select venues such as The Soiled Dove. Jones’ style has been described as folk rock with rich acoustic rhythms and melodic vocals supported
by a rock groove. Jones finished recording her second CD entitled Road Dreams which was released in 2002, on the heels of her debut 10-song compilation Life’s Mysteries which hit the streets in 2000. A finalist in the 1998 Lilith Fair Talent Search, Jones is an accomplished teller of tales whose music is as rich melodically as it is lyrically enchanting.

“I like telling stories through my music,” says Jones. “Whether it’s about places I’ve been or people I have met or to share life’s journeys, my music lets me speak from the heart in a way that’s very personal to me. I believe my audience can relate to these songs because they are all real experiences that we all go through. It’s what makes us all human - these dreams and fears.”

A good example of Jones’ story telling is evident on many tracks of Road Dreams especially “Journeymen” - the true story of her great-grandparents immigration to New York’s lower east side, and “Connecticut Towns” an ode to the northwest corner of Connecticut where Jones spent her formative teenage years. “Connecticut Towns” is Jones’ personal homage to a time and place that remains reassuringly constant in a world fraught with change. “I was back in Connecticut
visiting my brother and sister when this song came clear to me” says Jones. “It was just so good to be back driving down these familiar country roads surrounded by giant trees, red barns, and quaint farms. With the wind in my hair and the sun playing off the dappled trees, I felt as I did as a teenager with the whole world stretched out in front of me.”

John Magnie of the Subdudes accompanied Jones on accordian and keyboards on most of the tracks on Road Dreams, along with other top flight musicians. The album was recorded through Denver based Bendiksen Productions. Producer, Lance Bendiksen has worked with noted artists such as Arista’s Sarah McLachlan and RCA’S The Cowboy Junkies, Road Dreams was mixed and mastered by renowned studio engineer James Tuttle.

Kim Jones has two tracks fom Road Dreams (“Ride the Wave” and “Demons”) in rotation on one of Denver’s premier radio staions- 99.5 the Mountain (on their Homegrown Show hosted by Jake Shroeder). She can also be heard on “The Colorado Sound “ show on KRFC in Fort Collins.

Jones headlined July 2006 at The Grazing America Festival in Colorado Springs and The Concert in The Park Series in Fort Morgan, CO. October 2006, Jones was one of the featured artists at The City Park Festival of the Arts and The Cameron Cafe Music Series.

Fall 2007 Kim and her band performed at the Soiled Dove Underground which was recorded live for 99.5 The Mountain’s Mountain Homegrown Show. “Spinning Around” from her band’s performance is included on The Mountain Homegrown CD #6 released in February 2008.
Jones and her band were featured on KRFC’s “LIve @ Lunch “ May 26, 2008. Jones and her band recently performed at Denver’s historic Bluebird Theater, June 2008.
