CHECK OUT WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ABOUT BILLY JONES
 
Taking Blues to New Places with R&B, Southern Soul, and Urban Style : 
"One of the very Best Authentic Modern Blues and Soul albums in recent memory.
Billy Jones is a totally charismatic veteran who shows all the signs of becoming as big or bigger than Buddy Guy.
What really got to me were the lyrics. ...it is "Blues" ..transformed, updated and urbanized.
Exquisite Modern and Traditional Blues and Neo-Soul by one of the most talented artists on the contemporary scene."


"This young man has enormous talents. ..he has a quiet demeanor which disappears when his performance starts.
Then he transmogrifies into an animated music machine. ..a great musician and a gifted performer. ...and a nice guy."
Bob Davis - Soul-Patrol


"While I love traditional blues artists such as Son House, Howlin' Wolf, etc., it was just so damned nice to listen to something that speaks eloquently in the tradition of those older artists, and yet manages to bring something new and funky to the table."


"...the times and travels of an american bluesman."


"...his vocals are a blend of blues intensity and style with urban soul. ...incredibly soulful and funky! ...it's as if every song chastises me for never having heard of this man or his music before now. ...a combination of multiple genres while still maintaining a great late night, urban club feel. No matter if you want to call it soul, blues, R&B or whatever, Billy Jones can really put some emotion into his music. ...at times dark, mysterious, downright funky, and always compelling. ...and as I say all the time, that is what music, and especially Southern Soul music, is all about. ...each of the songs guarantees I'll be back for more."
- Southern Soul Review


"Here's a lick that caught my attention in "Love Nobody Else": "She said, 'All I wanted was for you to love me. But you only love yourself. And you so wrapped up in yo' own ego that you can't love nobody, love nobody, love nobody else'". There's a profound message here ... On one level, the lady in this song exhibits some emotional intelligence. She "gets it". I see that Billy Jones "gets it" also ... given that he incorporates this underlying theme into his music. It will stir your heart, your intellect and your soul."
- Kevin Burns, Google

"...he has a voice that will enchant you. ...Billy Jones is certainly his own man. ..with a show-stopping style!
I like. Super cool. Great mix of flavors. ...blues and funk, with a contemporary aftertaste. Good stuff. "

"As you all know, in my humble opinion, Billy Jones is one of the most interesting artists around on today's NuBlues music scene.
For
 his latest album, he has put together a collection of his best songs on an album called 'Funky Blues & Southern Soul - volume 1'.
These songs are compelling at the very least because they pay homage to the blues greats, yet show a wide range of influences and musical diversity. Look for 5 or 6 of these songs to make appearances on BOTH Blues @ RadioIO.com and NuSoul @ RadioIO.com in the coming weeks. In the meanwhile, check out some of his music at any one of his numerous
websites, listed below."

...biographical fact:
Billy Jones spent his teen and young adult years touring with, playing back-up guitar and being mentored by Calvin Leavy, Little Johnny Taylor and Larry 'Totsie' Davis. ...these are the original versions by the original masters that were written and recorded long before the cultural raiders and imitators came along.
All three of these great artists died penniless and unrecognized. ...and their life's works stolen to make fortunes for others.
Now ain't that the Blues?
...it is an honor to have been a musical soldier in their bands.
Calvin Leavy

                          -----------------------------------------
...these are some of my favorite quotes:
 
"Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure."
"We are the masters of our own destiny. We are the makers of our own fate."
"Without Courage ...we cannot practice any other virtue consistently."
“Know thy self and you will know the secrets of the universe.”

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
