"You have to hear this Northern Kentucky-based trio for its perfect amount of solemnity and simple, mountain friendly instrumentation."
-Kari Wethington - CiN Weekly


"...this is a creative, inventive indie rock album with some really catchy yet unconventional tunes."
- Matt Shimmer - indieville.com


"...folk-pop overtones dominate the record. The Appalachian folk and erratic orchestration reveal elements of the many incarnations of Palace Music, with a distinct pop flair that makes for a more accessible ride but maintains a revival-preacher's creepy charisma."
-Ryan Smith - splendidezine.com


"The Ralph Jones Band definitely defies any pre-conceived notion you might have about them. "
-Ericka McIntyre - citybeat.com


"The band doesn't seem to be striving for weirdness, it just kind of seeks them out." - ectoguide.org


Sonically somewhat representative of the geography of Northern Kentucky, on the edge of the Appalachian hills, honest art and urband high-faultin' city livin', the Ralph Jones Band lay down an organic yet lush sound that can be alternately quirky and rootsy, but mostly it's enchantingly moody and modestly arty."
-Mike Breen - citybeat.com


"Whoever produced this album (my bet's on the band) is just a genius with the knobs and has the knack to give birth to beautiful creations like this time after time again."
- J-sin - Smother.net


"you will probably get wet over if you dig the Clientele or even Low on their upbeat moments. I wish I had a whole album of this. " - Delusions of adequacy

Bio

The Ralph Jones Band formed in 2002. The name was chosen for wanting to be non-descriptive (a social experiment, if you will.) The stereotypes people have when they hear the name astounds the band. Nathan, Jason and Joe have all been called Ralph. Drowning in Kentucky, the band's debut CD, showcases the styles and unique sound the band has crafted. The band also chooses to not have a bassist, but you would never miss it. In 2004, they were accepted to showcase at NXNE in Toronto. MTV featured a song from the band's first album, Drowning in Kentucky, on their reality show MADE. Most recently, RJB played MidPoint Music Fesival in Cincinnati this year. Watch for the new record , Just For The Scenery! It was released to radio Feb 21st with the help of Tinderbox Music. The band also showcased at both SXSW (Austin,TX) and HYPERACTIVE (Albuquerque,NM) music festivals this year.
