about Brian Ashley Jones
Brian Ashley Jones is a soulful singer, accomplished lead guitarist, and versatile songwriter. Described as "Blues Grass", Jones' music is heavily influenced by the guitar driven blues, bluegrass, folk, country, and rock that he absorbed in his hometown, Spartanburg, South Carolina. Now based in Nashville, Tennessee, Jones maintains an active touring schedule and performs about 150 live shows per year at festivals, concert series, radio shows, and songwriter venues as well as leading workshops around the country as part of Nashville Songwriters Association International's Pros On The Road program.
Jones showcases his writing and playing chops with 11 well crafted original songs in his current release Courier. The swampy instrumental "Pull 'em Up" has been featured in the widely acclaimed PBS television series Road Trip Nation, and "Take" earned Brian a finalist position in the 2008 Emerging Songwriter's Contest at the Flat Rock Music Festival.
Along with his own busy touring schedule, Jones has found time to accompany a diverse batch of artists on stage and in the studio including Eric Heatherly, Thom Shepherd, Caroline Aiken, Sara Hickman, Jeff Black, John Pennell and Grammy Award winning songwriter Jon Vezner.
