An intense journey back to the sixties
Along with his band, Durand Jones conquered the hearts of America and, rapidly, the world beyond when he released his debut album in late 2016. Recording on a budget, Durand Jones and The Intentions were inspired by obscure soul artists of the 1960s: The Ethics, The Icemen and The Brothers of Soul, not to mention several swing and blues groups. The result is an achingly authentic sound that positively drips with 1960s groove and will leave you feeling both displaced in time and utterly addicted to this exciting young voice. Although it was never his intention to be a musician, it's clear that Durand Jones' voice was made to be heard - after his grandmother made him sing in the church choir as a boy, he began to develop an interest in gospel, soul, funk, R&B and pop, and eventually went on to study music at university. There he met four-piece blues band The Intentions - and the rest, as they say, is history. Durand Jones and The Intentions have created an extraordinary sound that has almost single-handedly revived a lost genre and reminded the world just how good it was. And it is, of course, meant to be heard live, which is why you need to get your hands on Durand Jones tickets now.
Durand Jones live: a must-see experience
As singer and saxophonist, Durand Jones was presented with the prestigious Louis Armstrong Award while still studying and certainly does have more than a little of this legend about him. You'll also be reminded of artists like Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield when you hear Durand Jones live: he embodies an unbeatable charisma and passion for his music that is simply infectious. The first full album by Durand Jones was recorded mostly live and retains an intense, immediate quality, proving that big budgets and plenty of post-production really aren't everything. A second album was announced for release at the start of 2019, taking listeners on a journey through American music as the members of Durand Jones' band all put their unique influences into the creation of the richly eclectic record. While there aren't many other artists like him out there, a Durand Jones concert is worth investigating for fans of groups like The Dip, St Paul & the Broken Bones and The James Hunter Six.
