“It’s not quite folk, it has hints of pop perhaps, and it rocks
“It’s not quite folk, it has hints of pop perhaps, and it rocks like no other.” – No DepressionThere’s a sort of magic when you meet someone who’s doing what they’re clearly meant to be doing. You can feel an electricity in the air—an energy that can’t quite be explained—but you know it when you see it. This is undeniable when you meet Laney Jones. In a few short years, since picking up the banjo, this young songwriter and bandleader went from playing rural Florida watering holes to performing on PBS alongside Alison Krauss and licensing music for the likes of Disney Pixar. Laney Jones has received accolades from No Depression and L.A. Record, as well as the legendary Alison Krauss. As an unsigned artist, she’s managed to grace the stage at New York’s Lincoln Center and DC’s Kennedy Center for the Arts, feature on PBS’s Great Performances series, earn corporate sponsorships and licensing deals, and receive nationwide college radio spins for her original songs. Currently, her voice can be heard on soundtracks of films and TV from the likes of Disney, Netflix, Dreamworks, Google, Toyota, and Red Bull. Laney’s also won many prestigious songwriting and new artist competitions, most notably the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Contest. We are thrilled to welcome Laney Jones and her band, The Spirits, to SHOWROOM. This will be a Dance Floor show, with standing room on the ground floor. Don’t worry, we have plenty of seats available around the edges of the room!
