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. The album will be called Listen.
The Musicians on Listen will include:
20-year-old Ben has been playing the harp for 5 years, guitar for 3, bass for 2 and the piano for a few months. Ben plays traditional blues, because it’s the music he listens to 99% of the time. “It’s a deep well of music and such good stuff as well, mainly 30s through to the 50s and 60s at the latest, but it’s blues all day long” says Ben.
Peter comes from a similar background to Jonathan and shares his love of blues music. They met along time ago and Peter offered his help to provide some more guitar.
“Dyna Flo” as she became known during the recording is a young lady who though still in her teens shows an understanding of the music that you would expect from someone with far more years listening to the blues.
An old friend added some subtle percussion where it was needed on various songs.
has been the driving force behind The King Biscuit
Boys for 9 years. He wrote most of the material and like Ben is 99% blues,
though he has had much longer to drink from the well.
'Miss you when you've gone' & 'Lazy Liar' have Peter Royson on 2nd guitar and Florence Waite on harp with Ross Young on percussion. 'She was Lying' also features Florence on harp.
'Lay my bible down' has just been mixed and features Florence Waite on harp.
'Big Sigh', 'Dancing Feet' and Just got to are in the final stages of recording
'Two policemen' is awaiting suitable vocals.

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.
