“Jones is a real talent with an undeniable gift for melody and songcraft, as is evident throughout his debut EP. The record is overflowing with an incredible number of ideas. It plays almost like a Greatest Hits album – each song is great, but quite distinct from the others on the record….At first glance we think we know what we’re getting, but then it dawns on us that there’s a lot more beneath the surface.”
“Austin is a city over-flowing with talented musicians, which makes it difficult for accomplished artists to stand out. Nevertheless, local singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and prolific musical collaborator David Thomas Jones is a rising DIY musician within Austin’s city limits, and increasingly, beyond.”
“David Thomas Jones is the best new indie act off the block…such a hardworking and talented individual should not go unnoticed…and now we have, arguably, the best indie alt rock record of 2012.”
David Thomas Jones is a multi-instrumentalist/songwriter/producer from Austin, Texas.
