Nighttime Friends

Hello, friends! If you don't know me, I'm Grant Jones. I'm a singer-songwriter from Billings, Montana. 

Nighttime Friends is my debut album. It's made up of tunes that I've written over the last seven years and have been playing around Billings for just about as long. If you're a regular at the Garage, at Montana Gallery, or at the Pub Station... you've probably heard these a time or two. 

Nighttime Friends has been a project and a half, and I'm lucky to have collaborated with some of my closest friends and musicians on it. The album features Phillip Griffin on backup vocals and bass, Keller Paulson on drums and percussion, Parker Brown on pedal steel and lap slide, and Erik Olson on keys. Matt Blakeslee produced these tunes, and Jordan Steingraber mixed and mastered them. These guys are the best of the best, and I can't thank them enough.

I'm excited to announce that Nighttime Friends has finally been recorded and is ready for your ears! With a little help from you and our old friend Kickstarter, of course.

Why a Kickstarter?

Because albums cost money, my friend. Production costs, ordering CDs of Nighttime Friends, yadda yadda... that's all just the tip of the iceberg. More than anything, getting the album out into the world is the first step on our path toward touring. 

The "Songs"

The songs speak of good times, heartbreak, and the deep sense that we are, in fact, all alone in the universe. And here is your first ear-look into the album! Please enjoy the hit single "Daisy".
