Laurence Jones is an exceptional Blues Rock artist who even though he is in his mid-twenties is a very mature singer-songwriter.  He has already won Young Artist of the Year three years running in the British Blues awards making a little bit of history!

Suffering a diagnosis of Crohns Disease in 2012 didn't stop Laurence fulfilling his dream and he released his debut album, "Thunder In The Sky" featuring the almost Punk "Bad Girl" and the funky "Too Good".  Laurence has also been Best European Guitarist at the European Music Awards in 2015 and in 2016 took Guitarist of the Year in the British Blues Awards!

The second album, "Temptation" was released in 2014 featuring my favourite track "Whisper In The Wind" which is a lovely Acoustic Country Blues track which reminds me of Bon Jovi playing it right down.  Following hot on the heels in 2015 came ""What's It Gonna Be" and then the fourth album, "Take Me High" in 2016.

There is much of his influences in his music, Hendrix, Clapton et all but there's also a good old fashioned Rock and Roll experimented and intertwined with other genres but keeping the Blues Rock sound.  Laurence is a force to be reckoned with, and am glad to give him this endorsement, he is a rare talent indeed.  See below the video for "Give Me Your Time" from new album "The Truth"
