JW-Jones' New CD

CA$ 11,500

146

This is going to be a great CD!  It's all about the top-notch songs and the production.

I've worked hard to save over 75% of the projected budget for this CD, but TIME IS RUNNING OUT!  We just need another $10k and this baby will be ready for delivery later this year!

The way that Kickstarter works is that you'll be charged only if all $10,000 of my goal is met. If my pledges only reach $9999, then I'll get nothing at all. If I surpass my goal, then all the money raised will go right into promotion - video, website, etc

If you've enjoyed our past CDs, and are as excited as we are about this amazing new project, please pick an incentive that suits your budget, and you'll get some great kick-back from kicking-in to this kick-starter! The power is with the people now, and don't forget to share on social media sites to generate interest so that we hit this goal as soon as possible so we all get something out of it!

PRESS RELEASE:

JW-JONES TO RECORD NEW CD WITH GRAMMY WINNING NASHVILLE PRODUCER, TOM HAMBRIDGE!

"JW-Jones is a red hot young Canadian guitar slinger/singer, and I'm looking forward to getting him into the studio and producing a big breakout record for him!", says Tom Hambridge from a studio in Nashville.

Jones knows this is a big opportunity and is ready to embrace it. "It's time to get out of my comfort zone and take my career to the next level… and I know Tom is the man to make that happen" said Jones from his home in Ottawa, days before heading on a Scandinavian tour to perform in Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. "George Thorogood & The Destroyers drummer, Jeff Simon introduced me to Tom in Memphis about a year ago and thought we'd make a great team!"

Things have been heating up for Jones who was asked to co-host the Maple Blues Awards in Toronto ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z40RvY4_NvM ), open for Johnny Winter on a US tour, open for Jimmie Vaughan, perform at Doheny Blues Festival outside Los Angeles, as well as record this killer new project, all before the end of May this year. His act is branded as a "High-Energy Crowd-Pleaser". Based on over 100 shows last year (Canada, Europe, USA), and being on target to beat that in 2014, Jones and his young band are definitely true road-warriors and the future is burning bright!

"I am digging deep into my personal life and telling some of my stories that have never been told before. Tom and I are co-writing many of these songs, so I know the passion and depth will shine through, and the listener will feel it"

Tom Hambridge's songs have been recorded by artists such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rascal Flatts, Delbert McClinton, Van Zant, many others, and have been featured in movies, commercials and television. He has been referred to as "The White Willie Dixon" by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, Buddy Guy, and Susan Tedeschi's "Secret Weapon". In 2011, he won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album for co-writing and producing Buddy Guy's album Living Proof. He was credited as the producer, songwriter and percussionist for George Thorogood and the Destroyers 2011 release 2120 South Michigan Ave., which included the song "Going Back" that reached number 1 on Classic Rock Radio. The same year, he wrote and produced B.B. King and Buddy Guy's duet "Stay Around A Little Longer."

Jones' eighth release will feature his touring band, Jamie Holmes and Laura Greenberg, as well as Tom's all-star session musicians Reese Wynans on keys (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joe Ely, Lee Roy Parnell, Brooks & Dunn), Tommy McDonald on bass (Bo Diddley, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Tim McGraw), Rob McNelly on rhythm guitar (Delbert McClinton, Hank Williams, Jr., Lady Antebellum, Dolly Parton), and Hambridge on drums.

Expect a fall release for the new record, and stay tuned on the JW-Jones Facebook page - www.facebook.com/jwjonesblues and Twitter - www.twitter.com/jwjonesblues for all the news!

Risks and challenges

The Risks and Challenges that Kickstarter uses as examples are production delays, collaborator mishaps, etc. Since this is my eighth release, I have the plans taken care of way in advance. The planning before this campaign alone has been three months in the making, and I am confident that everything will run smoothly. There is always a chance of delays when there is human error taken into consideration, but not this human! I always make sure to plan everything using a "worst case scenario" approach, and then be happy when it's early rather than getting close to deadlines. If there are any set-backs, I am a trained professional (don't try this at home!!!) and will tackle anything and everything that comes my way. PLUS, I have a GREAT team working with me to make sure that everything runs smoothly. Now all we need is the support and love from the people, friends, family, and fans!

This is a high-quality project, that naturally comes with a high-quality budget, but the results are going to be A-MAZING! Join us on this ride and be part of the team to get it out there! Thank you so much for your support!
