"Whiskey,Wine and Water -impressions"

"Stacy Jones connects with her Country Roots telling her story of a Whiskey & Water Baptism that lace Blues and Rock edges bringing this collection of songs to life. She embraces the Singer-Songwriter she has developed into with a conviction that listeners will relate to. From “Can’t Do Nothing Right”, “Whiskey Wine and Water” to “San Antonio”, crack the Crown and get down road with Stacy’s musical story." Jonathan Oogie” Richards NWCZ Radio
“With the rolling thunder blues of Howlin’ Wolf mixed with the honesty of Lucinda Williams, Stacy Jones is poised for big things to come with the fantastic new album ‘Whiskey, Wine & Water.’” Troy Michael, Innocent Words
“With her feet firmly planted in roots based music, Stacy Jones pays homage to the blues but experiments by mixing in some mild-Americana and subtle country licks. Dynamic vocals fueled by powerful lyrics help her blaze through track after track of music that will surely get the listener up on their feet and out on the dance floor.” Glen Casebeer, Northwest Music Scene
"If you thought you knew what to expect from a Stacy Jones album, you’re going to get quite a surprise when you hear “Whiskey, Wine And Water”. The up-tempo opening track “Can’t Do Nothing Right” gives a lie to the whole album, Stacy and the band can do little wrong! Unlike earlier albums, there are nice shades of country with fiddle on — “You And Me Tonight” and the tremendous rollicking “San Antonio” although both remain with one foot in the blues. Brooding ballads, power blues, gentle blues, up-tempo blues and the guitar on “Mama” is almost reminiscent of the Allman Brothers. Given Stacy’s harmonica skills, they’re a bit under-represented. However, Kevin Sutton (guitar), Tom Jones (bass) and Rick J Bowen (drums) provide a real power trio to show-case Stacy’s voice. The band’s best album yet in my humble opinion!" Cliff McKnight, Nothing But the Blues UK - NWCZ,Innocent Words, NW Music Scene, Nothing but the Blues U.K


"Stacy Jones :Headed you way"

Stacy Jones –S.T.E.A.M interview. Nov 1. 2014
Stacy Jones “can't do nothin’ right.” Or may-be she can, with this yet to be released collection of 12 original songs recorded and co-produced by Floyd Rietsma (Pearl Jam and Dave Mathews) at Studio Litho in Seattle. Stacy has been nominated by Washington Blues Society for over two dozen “Best of the Blues’ Awards for songwriting, performance, harmonica and guitar playing skills, showing that while she may be unlucky in love her true talent in life is music.
With her fourth studio album Stacy shows off her country, folk and Americana roots while always having a touch of the blues in her soul. She enlisted the talents of award winning guitarists Kevin Sutton, Mark Riley and Sean Denton to add firepower to her long time rhythm section of Tom Jones and Rick J Bowen. Veteran fiddle player John Perry also makes a guest appearance, adding the perfect spice to the sound.
Having made appearances at SXSW, Chicago Blues Festival, Beale St. Memphis during the IBC's and several other national and regional festivals, her talent is awaiting the next level of recognition.
Stacy has shared the stage with Elvin Bishop, Lee Oskar, John Nemeth, Ian Siegall, and Charlie Musselwhite and more, her wait for recognition won't be long.
STEAM: I hear you are in the process of finishing your fourth album. What is the name going to be, and when is it going to be released to the public?
STACY: Well so far everybody is in favor in the name Whiskey Wine and Water, which is one of the tracks on the new album. There are some other great titles too, Keep on Keepin’ On and Can't do Nothin’ Right. Whiskey Wine and Water is about good times with friends and the great family we have, and parents who raised us to follow our dreams and not be afraid to raise a little hell, so that's probably going to be the title track. We of course want to get the CD out as soon as possible and we are going to try to pick up as much momentum from it as we can from it, so we will get it into the best hands we can and I guess see what happens. Spring would be our ideal release. The mastering will be done at the end of this month.
STEAM: Your previous albums have won you many accolades from the Blues Society. What are some of the awards that you have won?
STACY: Well every year the band is nominated for handful of awards including Performer of the year, Harmonica, Songwriter, Acoustic Guitar, Drummer, Bassist, Electric Guitar, Band, and this last year I was nominated for Keeping the Blues Alive and won for the second time for Female Vocalist of the year. We have also been to Memphis for the IBC's rep-resenting the South Sound Blues Society for best self-produced album for the Live and Untapped album.
STEAM: Is the newest CD going to be classified in Blues genre?
STACY: Nope. The new album really is just an all-around roots album. Every genre that the Blues has influenced is on it. Some country, some Americana, some gritty driving your car down the road tunes and some sweet easy listening southern rock ballad type songs. There are no twelve bars, and every song is one of my originals. In the past I have had a lot of writers and some covers mixed in with the originals. This is more like the life of Stacy Jones set to music. There's a lot of personal stuff and that's just one of the things that really sets this apart from what we've done in the past.
STEAM: I notice that one of the songs on the new album is titled “San Antonio”. How does a girl who has made a following for herself in your hometown of Seattle come up with a song called “San Antonio”?
STACY: San Antonio is the song about moving my brother Jon-Paul Jones (Jonny 3 Fingers Creative Services) to San Antonio last year. We had a little road trouble and a gig we were trying to make it to. It’s a story about crossing state to state, and being stuck in Price, Utah. I've been to Texas before and it’s sort of about just wanting to be there again.
STEAM: You have played festivals and

events throughout the U.S., including SXSW two years ago. Were you able to make any connections with some of our local Texas musicians?
STACY: SXSW is a great place to meet people from all over. Yes, I was able to meet some great musicians in Austin, and I also met people in Memphis that led to us playing the Chicago Blues Festival, as well as some other great festivals and events outside of the Pacific Northwest area that we're from.
STEAM: Do you have any good stories about your first experience at SXSW?
STACY: Like chicken shit bingo (Ginny’s Little Longhorn Saloon)? Really, there are a lot of great moments, running into Tom Morello (Audioslave, Rage Against The Machine) playing on a dumpster in the middle of the street, jamming at the legendary White Swan with Mike Schermer, a great friend of mine from the Marcia Ball band, and all of the shows I was able to play with my fellow Critical Sun Records folks; The Furniture Girls, Sightseer, In Cahoots, and a handful of other great bands and artists.

"Featured Blues Review Stacy Jones Band - Live and Untapped"

Summer is a fantastic season for live blues concerts, whether indoors or out. In 2011 the Stacy Jones Band took the stage at Kennewick, Washington’s Untapped Blues and Brews festival--hence the name of their third album, “Live and Untapped.” Featuring music from their 2010 “Long Time Comin’” and 2011 “No Need to Spell It Out,” this release is a crowd-pleaser. Blues artists often pour extra energy into their live shows, although the overall sound may be less polished than on a studio album. That energy is certainly the case here, revealing why the Washington Blues Society deemed Seattle’s Stacy Jones and her crew “Best New Band” in 2009, and Jones as “Best Female Vocalist” in 2010. Joining her are Jeff Menteer on guitar and vocals, her father Tom Jones on bass, and Rick Bowen on drums and vocals. Besides a killer arrangement of T Bone Walker’s “T Bone Shuffle,” here are the three best of the band’s five original songs, among eleven total:
Track 02: “Heavy Water”--Written about New Orleans, this track eerily describes its conditions during hurricane season: “Black skies boiling far out to sea. Shades of warning, I do believe. Get yourself ready….” The chorus is far more infectious than those in natural-disaster songs have a right to be, and despite its moderate tempo, this song feels heavy due to Tom Jones’ bass and Bowen’s backbeat. “Feel the waves; feel the sound. Heavy water comin’ down!” In the wake of Katrina and, recently, Isaac, it’s especially poignant.
Track 06: “You Belong to Me”--The sixth song on this CD is a low-down, throw-down, swinging sensation! Stacy tells her latest conquest, in no uncertain terms: “Like a fish in the sea, you belong to me!” Her keyboard work here is absolutely phenomenal, and so is Menteer on growling electric guitar. Listeners, if they’re already standing up, will move and groove, and those who remain seated until this track’s over will wish they had.
Track 09: “Waitin’ On Love”--Number nine features another of Stacy Jones’ various talents, blues harmonica, with savory riffs in the middle. No one likes to play the waiting game when it comes to romance, least of all our narrator. “You’ve got me anticipating, baby, when you’re gonna make your move….” Her vocals are the most striking on this short and sweet selection, clocking in at three minutes and twenty-three seconds. Perhaps the band doesn’t want to keep blues aficionados waiting for a good time to grab the dance floor!
Since Stacy Jones and her band are decent songwriters in and of themselves, one might wonder why they spent so much time on covers here (e.g “Miss You,” “I’d Rather Go Blind,” and “You Upset Me Baby”). However, when one’s “Live…”, festival-goers might still gravitate toward the familiar. It’s a shame, because their full potential is still “…Untapped.” Rainey Wetnight - Blues Blast .com / Rainey Wetnight


"Stacy Jones Band: No Need to Spell It Out"

With their third release in as many years, the Stacy Jones Band sounds more confident, ballsier and sounding like they are having one hell of a good time recording No Need to Spell It Out.With 12 original new songs, the Stacy Jones Band – Stacy Jones (vocals, harmonica, keyboards, acoustic guitar); Tom Jones (bass, vocals); Jeff Menteer (guitar, vocals); and Rick Bowen (drums, vocals) – rip right into it with the opening track “No Matter What.” With Stacy Jones killer harmonica playing over the band’s steady groove, you are in for a roadhouse-style good time. Jones’ vocals are bright, powerful (and thankfully not buried in the mix), because she can wail her heart out – channeling her inner Etta James, Janis Joplin and Beth Hart. The fact that she is also a very skilled harmonica player and keyboardist makes this front woman a force that can hold her own.

On stage is where these new tracks are meant to be played. “You Belong To Me” would go down with a cold one in a dirty juke joint, while “Do What You Wanna” is a sassy hip shaker for all to enjoy. Above all else, “Heavy Water” and “Think I Feel Like Leavin'” are two of the best songs the Stacy Jones Band has ever written. “Heavy Water” is a sexy smoldering jam with haunting harmonica in the background, and it builds to a powerful chorus. “Think I Feel Like Leavin'” is a throwback blues jam you might have heard coming out of the small bars of Mississippi in the 1940s.

It’s a pleasure to watch a band grow through their records, and Stacy Jones Band has certainly done just that. No Need to Spell It Out shows that this quartet has matured to be one of the best blues/soul/rock bands not only in the Northwest, but the entire country. - Innocent Words


"CD review "No Need To Spell It Out.""

Stacy Jones has been playing music since she started playing piano at the age of four. By the time she finished high school, she had also picked up guitar and harmonica. She was singing Hank Williams songs in her dad’s band when she was eight years old. She’s been active on the Seattle blues scene since her teens and formed The Stacy Jones Band with Rick J. Bowen (drums), her father Tom (bass) and Jeff Menteer (guitar) several years ago, winning Best Female Vocalist and Best New Band awards from the Washington Blues Society in 2009.

The band’s fourth release, No Need To Spell It Out (Critical Sun Recordings), is a strong mix of blues/rock tunes, all written by various members of the band. Ms. Jones has a powerful, expressive vocal style, is equally skilled on guitar and keyboards, and can flat blow the back off a harmonica. Highlight tracks include the rocking opener, “No Matter What,” “Glory Bound,” which features some fine slide work from Menteer, the funky “Heavy Water,” where Jones gets to show off her harmonica skills, and “You Belong To Me,” where she takes a soulful turn on the keyboards. Guitarist Menteer really shines throughout the disc, but he really takes the cake on “Cry a Love Song,” an eight-minute rocker.

No Need To Spell It Out is a marvelous set of robust blues/rock tunes presented by a rising star on the blues scene, the talented and charismatic Stacy Jones. Blues fans would do well to keep an eye (and ear) out for her, for it sounds like she’s just getting started and still has a lot left to say.

"No Need To Spell It Out"

Boy, if you haven’t had the chance to catch the Stacy Jones Band yet, you’re really missing out on a fun time. The Seattle-based band has yet to make it to Portland, but they’ve been busy throughout the Northwest that when they finally do get down this way, jump at the chance to see them. Their latest release, No Need To Spell It Out, all originals capturing their rockin’ blues material to a tee. It’s jumping and it’s thrilling. Stacy’s voice soars like all the great female blues shouters before her, like Big Maybelle, Big Mama Thornton, Koko Taylor and Lydia Pense. The band’s delivery is stellar; hot and smoldering and it cooks!
Jeff Menteer is a guitarist of note. He can be funky, greasy, blistering and steaming, whatever the mood of the song calls for. Pay extra attention to his playing on numbers like “Glory Bound,” “You Belong To Me,” “Cry A Love Song,” and the solo he takes on “Tell Me Why” is absolutely biting! Rhythm section Rick J. Bowen on drums and Tom Jones on bass delivers in the pocket every time out. And what can you say about Stacy? The lady simply does it all. Besides her extraordinary vocals, she lays down acoustic guitar, keyboards and killer harmonica.
The Stacy Jones Band is destined to become another Northwest favorite. If you can’t make it up north to catch them and do not want to wait until they get to Portland, pick up a copy of No Need To Spell It Out and enjoy their music now. And you’ll be listening to it for a long time to come. Greg Johnson CBA

"New CD Release by The Stacey Jones Band Due Out November 1st"

The Stacy Jones Band, winner of the 2010 Best Female Vocalist and 2009 Best New Band awards from the Washington Blues Society, has a new disc scheduled for release on November 1st.


The new CD, titled No Need to Spell it Out, contains 11 original tracks including an eight minute jam epic track titled Cry A love Song. The band has been working hard on the new disc since last spring. New and long time fans of the Stacey Jones Band will not be dissapointed. On the tails of their 2010 release Long Time Comin', the band continues to bring their excellent musicianship, songwriting and dynamic arrangements forward with this new release.Twenty-Something Stacy Jones not only impresses with a vocal richness beyond her years but is also a top-notch harmonica player as well as playing keyboards and acoustic guitar. The entertaining trio of Rick Bowen (drums), Tom Jones (bass) and Jeff Menteer (guitar) provides the foundation for a strong ensemble sound and the band’s obvious joy of making music together is constantly commented on.

In 2009 The Stacy Jones Band took the Seattle music scene by storm, playing over 115 gigs & festivals as well as winning the Best New Band award from The Washington State Blues Society. The band released a limited edition CD Live at the Triple Door, in September. The Stacy Jones Band’s first full length CD, Long Time Comin, was released in January 2010 and continues to receive strong airplay and is now in its second pressing. 2011 looks promising for this Northwest favorite. - Todd Harrison/ Washington Blues Blog


"Stacy Jones Band/ No Need To Spell It Out"

Those who have followed the live blues in the Puget Sound know the Stacy Jones Band as great lively band that gets people on the dance floor, has great guitar playing, and a great young singer in her 20’s. She is not just the great lead singer though. She plays piano, organ, harmonica, and guitar as well. If you try to count the instruments she can play bring pen and paper to make tick marks. If you have seen any of their live shows during the last year you have heard a lot of great new material. Now at last, that great new material is on a new CD you can get. It opens with harp and then the vocals of their song, “No Matter What.” The next song is “Glory Bound” and that may be what this band is heading for. Those two songs make you dance even if you don’t dance. When Stacy sings “Heavy Water” you feel something that only great blues music can do but can only be done by a great singer. If Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi, or Debbie Davies want to sing this song (and I would bet they will want to) they will have to get permission. The music on this CD comes from the band. It is songwriting worthy of some awards and you can quote me on that.
Songs like “Do What You Wanna”, “You Belong to Me” and “Cry A Love Song” are all great songs that should be heard on the airwaves nationwide. “Full Moon With Her” and “I Think I Feel Like Leavin’”, and in fact every song here sounds like it was written by the best. The vocal harmonies, the guitar playing, the full arsenal of Stacy’s truck full of instruments,…it all makes this a good experience for your ears and gatherings should be organized for cardio workouts to it. I won’t be surprised by BB nominations in fields like “Best CD”, “Best Song Writing” with different band members competing over the award for songs they have on here, and “Best Female Vocalist.” I often underestimate people, so maybe there will be some nominations for some of the instrument playing too. This is not a good CD. This is a great CD. This is not a good band. This is a great band. Robert Horn- WBS Blues Letter- Dec 2011

"Stacy Jones Band/ No Need To Spell It Out"

"No Need To Spell It Out" contains 12 Tracks and as far as the lyrics and music were concerned, this entire album was really a group effort, with all the members of the band getting credit on various songs. Stacy Jones herself, gets credit for writing the lyrics and music to nearly half of the Tracks. In addition to Stacy Jones singing and playing Piano, Organ, Acoustic Guitar, and Harmonica, she is joined by fellow band mates Rick Bowen (Drums, Percussion, and Vocals), Jeff Menteer (Lead Guitar & Vocals), and Tom Jones (Bass). Rick, Jeff, and Tom, bring an immense amount of experience to the Stacy Jones Band. Special Guest Kathy Hettel provided Harmony Vocals on 2 of the Tracks. "No Need To Spell It Out" was produced by Bubba Jones, Rick J. Bowen, and The Stacy Jones Band.
My first impression after listening to "No Need To Spell It Out" was that the music struck me as being more on the rock side then the blues side, but please don't think that I didn't like the music, actually I loved it. From the hard driving opener “No Matter What" to the hypnotic bluesy jazz closer "Diggin' In The Mud", the Stacy Jones Band simply do not miss a beat as each and every member of the band ploughs through each Track like a possessed John Deere Combine on a Horizonless Wheat Field.
"No Need To Spell It Out" certainly did not fall into the category of Sophomore Jinx, as it came across with as much power, creativity, and uniqueness as their fantastic debut release. Stacy Jones Vocals and the rest of the bands amazing Musical Prowess continue to shine brightly as does their future, if they continue putting out these kinds of albums.
"No Need To Spell It Out" is one heck of an album which continued to wet my appetite for future albums from this amazing group of artists. Highly Recommended and Thoroughly Enjoyed.

"Stacy Jones Band/ No Need To Spell It Out"

From the State of Washington, Stacy Jones has been singing and playing music since she took up the piano at age four. Before she’d graduated from high school, she’d also become proficient on the guitar and harmonica. Hard work and a lot of practice have paid off as the The Stacy Jones Band hit the ground with a steady gallop. They have now released three annual albums including 2009’s “Live at the Triple Door EP,” 2010’s “Long Time Comin'” and now 2011’s “No Need to Spell it Out.” After the 2009 release, the band was recognized as Best New Band by the Washington Blues Society. The following year, the Society named Stacy as winner of the 2010 Best Female Vocalist award. The band’s formula for success is to consistently present charged-up music that imparts energy, power, originality and talent. Rick Bowen (drums), Tom Jones (bass) and Jeff Menteer (guitar) are consummate musicians who have the chops, as well as some foresight to push the envelope a bit into some blistering rocking territory. They also all contribute to the band’s original material. Special guest Kathy Hettel sings some harmony on two tracks, “I Think I Feel Like Leavin’” and “Do What You Wanna’.” While there are several enjoyable tracks on this CD, “Heavy Water” is a standout track that establishes an engaging groove, includes vocal harmony, and allow Stacy to strut her stuff on harmonica. The following track “You Belong to Me” showcases some of Stacy’s fine piano playing. Appearing regularly at venues like The Oxford Saloon in Snohomish, Wa., this band deserves the attention of a larger legion of fans. (Joe Ross)

"Nashville Blues Society Review - No Need To Spell It Out"

THE STACY JONES BAND - NO NEED TO SPELL IT OUT - Critical Sun

The Washington Blues Society has a hidden treasure that shouldn't stay hidden for long. Building off their 2009 victory for Best New Band for that Society, Stacy Jones won for Best Female Vocalist in 2010. And, they have just released their fourth overall CD, entitled "No Need To Spell It Out." It is some sho' nuff high-octane, all-original blues that showcase not only Stacy's writing and vocal prowess, but her keyboard, guitar, and harp(!) chops, too. The rest of this high-powered group are Tom Jones on bass, Rick Bowen on drums, and Jeff Menteer on guitar, and they blast thru these cuts with tight arrangements as well.



Also of note is Stacy's powerful, gospel-centered vocals that are prevalent on several cuts. The set opens with her harp and acoustic guitar intro on "No Matter What," where our heroine struggles to find just the right words to tell a lover her true feelings. "The Radio Song" features her piano work in a tale where she eschews trickery and gimmickry in favor of singing from the heart and soul to convey her message. "Glory Bound" features some deep slide over a passionate vocal from Stacy, while "I Think I Feel Like Leavin" is a good-time shuffle built around a rhumba-fied beat.


We had three favorites, too. Everyone knows of someone who's just a bit eccentric and slightly left-of-center, and it seems everywhere she goes, she "brings the Full Moon With Her." "The Medicine" has more of Stacy's great gospel fervor, while the power of Hurricane Katrina is documented in the swampy, brooding tale of the "Doomsday Reveille," "Heavy Water."



Stacy Jones is a multi-talented young woman bent on conquering the contemporary blues world. With sets as formidable as "No Need To Spell It Out," she and her band make themselves a definite force to be reckoned with!! Until next time.....Sheryl and Don Crow - Nashville Blues Society

"Review of Stacy at Bumbershoot 2005"

Volume XVII Number X October 2AAJ
One Day Of Bumbershoot Blues
Story by Eric Stiener
The Highway 99 All-Stars featured a blues who's who of Pacific Northwest musicians and included a young harp protege, Stacy Jones. Jones more than held her own on Junior Wells' signature tune "Messin' With The Kid" and blew tasteful frills and fills behind Randy Oxfords trombone, John Lee of the Crossroad's Band's, Hot Rod's B3, and Steve Sarkowsky's drums. Virginia Klemens shared vocals with lead guitarist Jerry Lee Davidson and tossed prize CDs and tee shirts to the crowd, which grew to capacity awaiting Sonny Landreth's show. The Highway 99 All-Stars hold court at The Highway 99 Blues Club the first and third Tuesday of each month. My favorites from the Highway 99 All-Stars' set included a full-tilt boogie version of Chuck Berry's Nadine" and Stacy Jones' soulful interpretation of 'Night Time is the Right Time." For a young artist, she's chosen some pretty demanding material, and if her spot at the Miller Lite Blues Stage is any indication of this young player's potential, she's up to the challenge of interpreting Junior Wells and Sonnv Bov Williamson. From The Miller Lite Blues Stage at the Thirty Fifth Annual Bumbershoot. - Washington Blues Society


"Soulfull Blues Rock CD"

"Red Dirt Road" by Stacy and the Wolf Tones is a genuine and authentic blues rock CD. It features the beautifully weathered bluesy voice of Stacy Jones accompanied by a talented group of musicians fusing a southern house rock sound with jazzy undertones. "Big Bucks Band" will make your foot tap and also features some of Stacy's impressive harmonica work. The piano work of Beth Wulff can't be ignored on this track either."Shady Lady" is a nice little lounge blues number with powerful vocals and "tell it to'ya" lyrics. If you like soulful blues rock and heart-felt vocals, you'll enjoy this CD.

"Red Dirt Road CD Review by Eric Steiner (President of WBS)"

Red Dirt Road is a diverse record that veers toward country blues more than traditional blues. It's a welcome addition to my car's CD player whenever I have the opportunity to drive for a while. There are many songs suited for the open road, including the title cut and the delightfully rambling "This Night." If you like up tempo country blues you will appreciate Red Dirt Road. I first discovered Stacy Jones at Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival in 2005, and I knew then that she had that special something that's finally showcased on this CD.
