As well as performing with the King Biscuit Boys and others, writing songs Jonathan has also written articles, reviewed CDs & live performances for Blues Magazines and is a promoter for the Bletchley Blues Club in Milton Keynes. www.bletchleybluesclub.uk.
Jonathan will be available for solo shows and will seek others for live performances and collaborations.
Jonathan is currently recording tracks for an album release later in the year. He has a couple of tracks, Slowly Walking Away & Ticket Home, that have been completed with Ben White featuring on harmonica and Peter Royson on 2nd guitar. These have been released to the IBBA (Independent Blues Broadcasters Association) at the start of August 2020.
By September, Jonathan had finished two more tracks. Valentines Day, an original song inspired by Bukka White.
Ben again features on harp with Peter again providing the 2nd guitar.
Miss you when you've gone is a reworking of a song that The King Biscuit Boys recorded. Jonathan and Peter share the guitar parts. Florence Waite provides the harp.
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.
Below is a clip from my first gig with Ben White on harmonica. Craig was unable to travel to the Manchester area. The unedited video was taken by Emma Westerman. Hopefully we will be able to schedule more gigs. It's a different sound to what we do with Craig, so it might suit some different venues.
Best quotes at gigs:
I nearly walked out of the Bob Dylan gig, but happily stayed for all of yours :-)
