CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

DEEP-SOUL ACT DURAND JONES & THE INDICATIONS PERFORM 6 SXSW SHOWS NEXT WEEK!


DURAND JONES & THE INDICATIONS' MAKE A CHANGE TOUR ARRIVES IN AUSTIN NEXT WEEK FOR 6 SXSW SHOWS AND MAKES AN EARLY APPEARANCE IN TOWN THIS SAT. FOR AN ANTONE'S SHOW WITH ALOE BLACC & WHITNEY!









"Back in July when Durand Jones & The Indications debut album was released, we had no idea what the world would think,” explains Terry Cole from Colemine Records. "After all, the record, albeit finely crafted, was conceived in a dingy Indiana basement on a shoestring budget of 452 dollars and 11 cents (we kept receipts). They didn't have ‘buzz.' They didn't have a following. They didn't have the measured flash of more polished operations. But as the final mixes spun off of the master reel, we knew what they did have was one remarkable soul record. To our delight, the record was a smash and their no-frills LP continues to fly off the shelves."



Now, by popular demand, Durand Jones & his mighty Indications are hitting the road on their first U.S. tour. They've already sold out the first two shows of this tour in NYC and Chicago, so don't sleep — go out and catch them in your city.

HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING ABOUT DURAND JONES AND THE INDICATIONS:



“Durand Jones singing is a rare combination of purity and power—unlike his Daptone forefathers, Jones hasn’t endured decades of smoky bars and tough breaks. Though sonic comparisons to Charles Bradley and Lee Fields are unavoidable, Jones’s youth and DIY ambition make him stand out against the overarching narrative of rediscovery that has become all too familiar. These aren’t middle-aged session guys in fedoras propping up an aged belter long since fossilized on a dusty 45. It’s a band that writes compelling original material and turns out ultrafun, dance-filled performances at the club. If, like many folks, you’re missing the panache and energy of the late Sharon Jones, this Jones will definitely fill the void.” - CHICAGO READER



“A young singer with a classic sound, Louisiana native Durand Jones aims to fill the Charles Bradley-shaped hole in your heart.” - AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN



“Easily one of the best deep soul albums we've heard in years.” - DUSTY GROOVE



“Album of The Year”  Rock Pop & Soul - SOMETHING ELSE REVIEWS



“Durand Jones has the wail of Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard, the nostalgic toe-popping vibes of Leon Bridges and a record to compete with both.” - THE OBSERVER



Durand Jones and the Indications hearken back to a time when soul was recorded, performed, and (if possible) heard live.”  - POPMATTERS



"The album is beautifully produced... Jones absolutely dominates the songs with his powerful, soulful and ever-evolving voice.” - SPILL MAGAZINE



“…a phenomenal debut and modern soul record.” - EASY STREET RECORDS



“ … a very sharp debut album… a total gem.” - THE VINYL DISTRICT
