Produced and Recorded at Buffalo Music/Jonivan Jones Music. All songs written by Jonivan Jones. Mastered for Digital and Vinyl by James Plotkin (Plotkinworks).

"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

"Jonivan Jones is a songwriter hailing from Arkansas, who began making music in 1994, crafting and recording melodies on an old 4 track tape recorder. He began writing songs while growing up in Arkansas and learning traditional style folk music at gatherings in the Ozarks. 

 

Over time, he ventured into the realm of publishing and affecting audiences with his compositions, chasing opportunities to perform and connect with listeners. Living a transient lifestyle for work from the age of 19, he devoted the years to experimenting with the different sounds and styles encountered along the way. 

 

South Pacific travels, Twang and Psychedelic sounds learned in South Texas to early years of learning old Folk, Blues and Cowboy campfire style songs in Arkansas helped this cook over into its rough-hewn jangly form. The musical style can also be characterized by its ragged lilts and reverence to Delta & Folk Blues. 

 

Live performances are a stirred-up framework of genres, creating a unique but familiar sound. Years of songwriting and random live shows amassed a catalog of unique music that is often a nod to life’s pact with the wild."
