MTS Management Group and Americana/Alt-country singer-songwriter, Jiggley Jones are happy to announce Jiggley Jones’ signing with Lamon Records Nashville. Recording for Jones’ first album with the label will begin in January. It will be the follow-up to his 2012 EP, “No Spring Chicken.”
As the title of his first release suggests, the Eastern Pennsylvania native has led a long career in the entertainment business: “Lets face it, I’m not 18 anymore, and thank God for that”, says Jones. “I’m no longer coming from a place where I feel I have to ‘fit in.’ I’m coming from a place that is different because that is what I’ve become. No tattoos, no piercings, just music, strong and true, music that paints a picture.”
Jones, whether alone or a member of various bands, has written well over 100 songs. His experience has taken him through various phases and musical endeavors including soundtrack projects on MTVs “Cindy Crawford’s House of Style” and “Road Rules.”
Jiggley Jones, the project, came about in late 2007 and is now under the professional direction of MTS Management Group and Michael Stover. Since then, Jones has performed at notable venues such as The Bitter End in NYC, Hard Rock Cafe in Philadelphia, World Cafe Live, The Dewey Beach Music Conference, and CMA Fest in Nashville. He is the winner of the 2013 Graffiti Radio Songwriting Contest as well as the recipient of the 2013 IMEA Award for Best Songwriter.
“After an exhaustive search and many label discussions and offers, we are thrilled to have Jiggley Jones signed with Lamon Records,” said Michael Stover of MTS. “Lamon is a world-class label with a great reputation for quality artists and releases. We believe that they will provide Jones with the proper support and creative environment we desire for him. We are looking forward to a stellar 2nd release from Jiggley Jones.”
“Jones has that one-of-a-kind sound that I look for in an artist,” Stover says. “His songs will touch you and move you with their beautiful lyrics and melodic strength. However you want to look at this picture, whether it’s Americana, Wide Open Country, or acoustic whatever, he represents life, hope, and human nature as only a seasoned person can see it.”
