Mr Jones‘ intense songs, that he plays on guitar and sings with a powerful, versatile voice are fascinating for every listener. The mixture of classic American folk music and the immediate neighborhood to the modern singer/songwriter scene make Mr Jones find his very own individual style.
His certain feeling for the Americana genre comes through on his two most recent albums ‚I thought I was already there’ and ‚the basement files’. He finds his very own interpretation of covers of his friends and idols and still leaves them the appeal that made him choose the songs for recording. That makes him an ambassador of American acoustic music in Europe.
Born in Germany, he crafted his songwriting and his stage presence by following his idols in the USA. He shared stage with quite a few of them while touring through renowned clubs in Germany, Austria, Italy, France, Belgium, Holland, England, Scotland, Ireland or the USA. He also recorded his CD ‚Waitin‘ For Me‘ in Houston, TX. Worldwide radio airplay got him more outstanding reviews.

„Mr Jones, it was great to hear your songs and your love for the singer/songwriters.“
(Darrell Scott, Grammy nominated Singer/Songwriter and Producer, USA)
„Mr Jones’ road stories sound so authentic – just, as if was born and raised in Texas.“
(Matti Goldschmidt, Folker! Magazine, Germany)
„Not only is the songwriting in the great Texan tradition, sometimes it also reminds me of the glorious days of Greenwich Village.“
(Massimo Ferro, Radio Italia, American Folk, Italy)
„Depth? Absolutely! But with Mr Jones it is not all about soul-wearing burden but a good pinch of wit and self-mockery of someone, who likes to dig deep to find the hidden inner sense, only to then free himself from it to laugh hearty about the good and beautiful things in life.“ (Passauer Neue Presse)
„The title track Waitin‘ For Me (…) is a ballad like Springsteens Philadelphia, that could easily be used as a soundtrack for a movie.“
(Luc Gheldof, Roots Town Music Magazine, Belgien)
