Jones’ songs delve through his own journeys, aspirations and personal experience, via the yearning sounds of early 1940’s Harmony Groups, venturing to the Deep South and further beyond. Influenced by Alan Lomax’s many discoveries, Nina Simone & Tom Jobim, the beautifully introspective elements of Nick Drake and sweet melancholic sounds of Ali Farka Toure or Paul Simon. Having just played a number of summer festivals and close to 100 dates this last year – his live shows continue to evolve. http://www.afrobillyjones.com/
