Written by Jonivan Jones and Recorded by Jonivan Jones and Mike West in Arkansas and Texas.

Mastered by James Plotkin (Plotkinworks).

After several years of traveling and putting in some miles to travel to play live music as a two piece consisting of guitar and upright bass, a sound and collection of songs was polished into creation. The cover is of a scene that was observed in the early hours of the morning after covering some miles and performing these songs near a desert as a two piece.

"Fighting uphill the last few years and traveling, sleeping in cars or on the ground in parks & national forests along tour routes created the backdrop for an album. It's full of road songs, still spells, little red hens, ragged truths, an ode to an important cowboy singer/songwriter, old trails, road staggers, lonely highway blues, bat countries, 2nd chance hearts and a fast fade. This release blankets the peak of 17 years of Independent songwriting, performing live and traveling across the States and parts of the world, it's a mixture of influences and experiences from Arkansas Folk to the Delta & Country Blues sound to the familiar rhythm of Americana and its roots." credits released December 2, 2022

About me..

"I am a songwriter from Arkansas, who began making music in 1994, crafting and recording melodies on an old 4 track tape recorder.  I began writing songs while growing up in The Natural State and learning traditional style folk music at some special get togethers in the Ozarks throughout my early life.  

 

Over time, I ventured into the realm of the gamble of publishing and affecting audiences with these compositions, chasing opportunities to perform and connect with listeners. I lived a kind of transient lifestyle for work from the age of 19, and spent the years experimenting with the different sounds and styles encountered along the way. 

 

Sometime around 2004 while living near New Orleans for work I began recording what I would then describe as alternative experimental psych ~ folk blues songs on an old 4-track recorder and publishing them to whatever location I could find.  Over the years until 2016, I wrote, recorded and performed this music live with a handful of co-musicians that I met along my travels.  

 

At the time, I called this ongoing project “animalsound”, “animal+sound” or sometimes “animalsounds” and had positive receptions/connections on one of our releases titled “The Unknown” with the (2011 Levee Breaking Art/Music Project/Pacific Northwest) and NPR.  

 

But eventually (around 2016) at the advice of a friend and amidst some life changes I decided to simplify my approach and lean into the core of who I was in regards to music. 

 

So my travels and life helped this cook over into its rough-hewn jangly form you can hear now. Some from the Twang and Psychedelic sounds learned in South Texas, some was a bit of my time around the South Pacific and at the core it's very much rooted in my early years of learning old Folk, Blues and Cowboy campfire style songs in Arkansas."

Some Press

The Arkansas born and bred singer-songwriter has churned out tunes since before the millennium. Jones’ childhood was brimming with the folk music style of the Ozarks: campfire tunes and handed-down cultural traditions. ”

Music Mecca

Jones has the right idea on the single “Runaway Main,” a country number that feels like a page ripped out of an updated list of apocalyptic prophecies. ”
