Taking Blues to New Places with R&B, Southern Soul, and Urban Style :
"One of the very Best Authentic Modern Blues and Soul albums in recent memory.
Billy Jones is a totally charismatic veteran who shows all the signs of becoming as big or bigger than Buddy Guy.
What really got to me were the lyrics. ...it is “Blues” ..transformed, updated and urbanized.
Exquisite Modern and Traditional Blues and Neo-Soul by one of the most talented artists on the contemporary scene."

"...he has a voice that will enchant you. ...his songs are oozing with sexuality. ...at times dark. ...mysterious. ...downright funky, and always compelling. ...Billy Jones is certainly his own man. ...with a show-stopping style!"

"Here’s a lick that caught my attention in 'Love Nobody Else': “She said, ‘All I wanted was for you to love me. But you only love yourself. And you so wrapped up in yo’ own ego that you can’t love nobody, love nobody, love nobody else’”. There’s a profound message here … On one level, the lady in this song exhibits some emotional intelligence. She “gets it”. I see that Billy Jones “gets it” also … given that he incorporates this underlying theme into his music. It will stir your heart, your intellect and your soul." - Kevin Burns, Google+

...genuine road-hardened delta blues outlaws. ...blues/funk meets southern soul!

"...his vocals are a blend of blues intensity and style with urban soul. ...incredibly soulful and funky! ...it’s as if every song chastises me for never having heard of this man or his music before now. ...a combination of multiple genres while still maintaining a great late night, urban club feel. No matter if you want to call it soul, blues, R&B or whatever, Billy Jones can really put some emotion into his music. ...and as I say all the time, that is what music, and especially Blues & Southern Soul music, is all about. ...each of the songs guarantees I’ll be back for more."

"This man has enormous talents. ..he has a quiet demeanor which disappears when his performance starts.
Then he transmogrifies into an animated music machine. ..a great musician and a gifted performer. ...and a nice guy."

"While I love traditional blues artists such as Son House, Howlin’ Wolf, etc., it was just so damned nice to listen to something that speaks eloquently in the tradition of those older artists, and yet manages to bring something new and funky to the table."
                           -----------------------------------------
"As you all know, in my humble opinion, Billy Jones is one of the most interesting artists around on today's NuBlues music scene.
For
 his latest album, he has put together a collection of his best songs on an album called 'Funky Blues & Southern Soul - volume 1'.
These songs are compelling at the very least because they pay homage to the blues greats, yet show a wide range of influences and musical diversity. Look for 5 or 6 of these songs to make appearances on BOTH Blues @ RadioIO.com and NuSoul @ RadioIO.com in the coming weeks. In the meanwhile, check out some of his music at any one of his numerous
websites, listed below."

                           -------------------------------------------
...biographical fact:
Billy Jones spent his teen and young adult years touring with, playing back-up guitar and being mentored by Calvin Leavy, Little Johnny Taylor and Larry 'Totsie' Davis. ...these are the original versions by the original masters that were written and recorded long before the cultural raiders and imitators came along.
All three of these great artists died penniless and unrecognized. ...and their life's works stolen to make fortunes for others.
Now ain't that the Blues?
...it is an honor to have been a musical soldier in their bands.
