Southpaw Jones treads lightly on the thin ice of irreverent honesty. Being left-handed, he naturally turns his guitar upside-down to play more comfortably. Being a creative little brother, he naturally turns the world upside-down to make his audience squirm with delight. Critics say he has "that most amazing ability to be hilarious and heartbreaking at the same time," and his songs are "at once political, personal, serious, hilarious, lucid, and muddled." Author Spike Gillespie calls him "the left-handed Elvis Costello and the best songwriter in the land." Southpaw has had the honor of opening shows for Dan Bern, Terri Hendrix, and Lisa Loeb, performing in legendary listening rooms from coast to coast. As he has for the past six years, Southpaw continues to perform each Thursday with Matt the Electrician in Austin. He updates his site weekday mornings to the delight of dozens.
