Based in Brooklyn, The Bones of J.R. Jones (aka Jonathon Linaberry) has made a musical descent from the hardcore punk scene to roots and blues after being gifted a collection of albums entitled American Roots Music by his father. He dove in head first, never looked back and developed a deep seeded love for classic folk and blues, by early torch bearers like Blind Lemon Jefferson and Lightin’ Hopkins.
Forthcoming album Dark Was The Yearling is out on the 20th May, and our advance copy has been getting some serious repeat plays here at MM. It is an album that stomps, hollers, kicks and gleefully embraces the hellfire and brimstone damnation of classic garage-blues. Have a listen to the first single, the excellent Good Friend Of Mine.
