The City of Angels was good to Jody Jones, landing him various roles on network television and in both mainstream and independent film. In retrospect, more important was the opportunity Jody found in L.A. to cut his songwriting teeth in many of the city’s finest clubs including The Mint, Hotel Café, Ivar Theatre, Highland Grounds, The Viper Room, and Room Five. entually, hungry for a fresh artistic scene, Jody set out on the road. He stopped at every honky tonk and southern diner he could find on his way and finally settled in North Carolina for a stint performing in various venues, including the Sky Lounge and The Mad Monk. Surviving the Los Angeles riots, North Carolina hurricanes and everything in between for over a decade, Jody has found his way back home to Texas. “I was ready to produce my first full length solo album,” he reflects, “…put some things down ‘on paper and tape’ and I couldn ’t think of a better place or better people to work with…so I came home for now.” Along the way, Jody Jones has crafted his own unique brand of cross-culture country soul music that warms hearts and roots itself in his own real experiences. Tragedies, Broken Hearts and Liars is hard proof of his rising talent as both singer and songwriter. Its intense lyrics, strong rhythms and catchy melodies are undeniable and he’s just getting started.
