About the Service

Lloyd Jones imageLloyd Jones is one of the most original artists on the modern day Blues scene. Jones is, in the words of Blues Revue, certainly worthy of greater recognition. The release of his first recording for Blind Pig Records, Love Gottcha should bring him the national and international acclaim he deserves. Lloyd Jones has performed with a variety of Blues luminaries such as Albert Collins, Robert Cray, Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, B.B. King, Dr. John, John Hammond, Etta James, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jeff Healy, Roy Orbison, George Thorogood, James Cotton, Koko Taylor, Junior Wells, Buddy Guy and many more.


Lloyd Jones and his band have become a mainstay on the West Coast circuit, and have brought their tasteful, crowd-pleasing brand of music from New Orleans to Canada to the Caribbean, where Delbert McClinton witnessed a performance and remarked, when I heard Lloyd Jones live for the first time, it was like exhaling after holding my breath for fifteen years.



 Jones sings like Delbert McClinton's long lost brother and plays guitar like Robert Cray unleashed. 

Vintage Guitar

Lloyd Jones' intelligent and soulful mix of original Blues, Funk and R&B is unlike any bluesy hybrid you're likely to hear. 
Blues Review

On his recent recording, Trouble Monkey the best damn record I've heard in a long time! 
Robert Cray

Jones sings and plays guitar with a lean and hungry edge.
