MP3 Dan Jones - Get Sounds Now

Guided-by-Crazy-Horse americana power pop, ballads, bombast and 80''s-type stuff.

13 MP3 Songs
POP: Power Pop, ROCK: Americana

Oregon''s garage poet Dan Jones has been singing his omnibus of americana/punk tales since 2000, when he self-released his acclaimed, off-the-cuff For Your Radio. ("Any given verse of his songs packs more wit than a roomful of singer-songwriters could muster in a month of open mikes," said The Willamette Week then). Summer 2005 sees the release of Dan''s third album, Get Sounds Now, a Guided-By-Crazy Horse bulletin knocked out on the fly with the help of his band, The Squids, featuring friends from Testface, White Hot Odyssey,The For, Pellet Gun, The Visible Men. The Oregonian says Get Sounds Now "shines with Jones and The Squids musical maturity," citing iconic musical influences Lou Reed and The Minutemen. "The angst and angles within the story lines come across with a wry humor and sympathy...never the urgent, needy, in-your-face variety." The Eugene Weekly says "Jones scores with Get Sounds Now...strong song after strong song."

The Willamette Week calls Jones'' work "brilliant" and "irresistable." As for his solo gigs, The Portland Mercury invites the listener to "smash your head against the acoustic punk rock." And Mike Watt says "I''m thinking D. Boon would dig a cat like Dan Jones."

In 2003 Leisure King Productions (Tom Heinl, The Visible Men) released Dan''s One Man Submarine, a collection of americana, punk-influenced power pop, and garagey rock songs. The Portland Oregonian called the record "irresistibly tuneful," while the Cincinnati City Beat''s Positively Yeah Yeah Yeah column declared Dan a "late-blooming master songwriter" and the record "a stunning indie gem.... electric, haunting, spontaneous, and fun." Performing in the clubs and listening rooms around the Northwest, Dan has shared bills with Mike Watt, Erin Mckeown, Steve Wynn, Love, Season To Risk, The Minus 5, Stew, Jason Ringenberg, James McMurtry, Peter Case, Clem Snide, Roy Harper and many others.
