Just to let you know that I have decided to quit the King Biscuit Boys. I've really enjoyed being in the King Biscuit Boys. I have learned, experienced a lot and grown as a musician, but would now like to do different creative things.
Thank you to everyone who has liked and listened to our music and came to our gigs. I really appreciate it. I wish Jonathan the best with all his musical pursuits in the future.
Jonathan will be available for solo shows and will seek others for live performances and collaborations.
Jonathan is currently recording tracks for release later in the year.
Some songs have been completed completed with Ben White featuring on harmonica including :Slowly walking away, Got my ticket home, Valentines day. A further collaboration with Ben features him on piano.
A further two (Miss you when you've gone & Lazy Liar) have Peter Royson on 2nd guitar and Florence Waite on harp with Ross Young on percussion.
'Lay my bible down' has just been mixed and features Florence Waite on harp.
Dancing Feet and Just got to are in the final stages.
More to come.
You can hear some of them on the SoundCloud clip below.
Jonathan is also working with Matt Timms, the harmonica player from Haney's Big House on songs for live gigs. It will be more electric sound than most of the stuff with Craig. We have about 25 that we think will work well.
Other projects are also on the way.

The King Biscuit Boys are predominantly an acoustic blues duo that can turn electric if required. Since 2012 they have been honing their craft playing regularly all over England and Wales. They are based in the South Midlands and have built up a loyal, local fans base.
The King Biscuit Boys deliver an energetic authentic blues infused live performance. While Jonathan provides various guitar styles and vocals; Craig interweaves with virtuoso harmonica playing. He also brings washboard, cajon, keyboard, lap slide and more to the party!
They perform a wide range of material from country blues, through the 40s and 50s to modern original blues songs.
"The mix of good time acoustic blues on guitar and harmonica, supplemented with a sprinkling of other instruments and a good balance of originals and covers, with a generous drizzle of humour thrown in, left me going home have had a thoroughly entertaining evening" - John Cee Stannard.
