Jiggley Jones is a singer/songwriter who performs music that has been described as falling into the Americana, acoustic, and alternative country genres. According to his Reverbnation page, his music is described as sound like Dave Matthews Band, The Beatles, and The Civil Wars.
Jones was once a member of a band called Q, which was involved with soundtrack projects for such MTV shows as The Dennis Rodman Show, Cindy Crawford’s House of Style, and Road Rules; they also had music that appeared in the film, Tainted Love. During his career, Jones has also worked in entertainment public relations, and has performed in such venues as CBGB’s, The Woodbine Inn, and the Chameleon Club.
Jones has released a four-track EP titled, No Spring Chicken. The four tracks available on the EP are: “Baby Blue,” “Welcome Home,” “Ain’t That Alright,” and “Christmas 365.”
I have to admit that I come at this EP as someone who generally doesn’t listen to Americana or alternative country music. Unfortunately, by the time I finished listening to this EP, I didn’t feel motivated to try to discover more music in these genres to listen to. The one thing that really stood out to me about these tracks is the fact that Jones’ vocals kind of had a Tom Petty-like texture to them, except with a little more of a warble.
“Baby Blue,” the first song on the EP, has been released as a single. Unfortunately, I just really wasn’t feeling this song; I think for me, this was due to the fact that I really couldn’t appreciate Jones’ vocal style on this track.
I have to admit that the only track that I kind of appreciated on this release was “Welcome Home.,” because the vocal style Jones used on the song worked well with the musical arrangement; I found this song to be the one that was the most pleasing to listen to.
From hearing No Spring Chicken, I can tell that Jones has talent and experience in the music business. This isn’t necessarily a bad EP, it’s just that this type of music isn’t what I generally listen to. However, if you enjoy American or alternative country, then you might find enjoy listening to No Spring Chicken.
