With incredible charisma and amazing presence on and off the stage, Greg Jones has been winning over fans, musicians and critics on two continents....and the fire spreads. Greg has been singled out as one of New York's most promising artists and undoubtedly one of the most passionate live performers in his right. And the news of Greg is travelling.... The calls come from Boston, Philadelphia, Memphis and as far as London. Greg Jones is a rare formidable talent on the verge of major recognition, and the fire spreads still. In New York City free paper,the Village Voice, Greg Jones has been dubbed one of the area's best composers. He writes songs of existential gloom and doom, weaving a tapestry of emotion with fernetic guitar work and insightful lyrics to bring his entire audience to a jaw-dropped halt during live performances. Playing for the past 15 years at open mics across the Northeast of America and all over the UK, he has been honing his craft in preparation for what will be a promising and entertaining career for the years to come. 'Eyes closed, face turning bright red, Greg hunches over his guitar, wringing-no pounding the notes out of it injecting the songs into you in one powerfully built-up shot of moving emotion.' (Musicians Exchange, May 1997). 'If this artist isn't a self-contained trip, I don't know who is..' and 'What Jones is putting across is purely his own and anyone who can't hear that should have their ears scooped out !' (Inside Connection, June 1998). Anticipation for the release of his self-produced debut CD Like A Movie grew to a level near frenzy. With almost 1,000 CDs sold in the first month of it's release, the fire spreads still.... The demand for Jones' music has gotten the attention of local retailers, and 'Like A Movie' can now be found at select TOWER Record stores. In his own words 'There really isn't a choice for me, the choice has already been made..'. Greg Jones is more than just a singer-songwriter, he is the song.
