Tell us about your latest album/ tour?
Little Death – 12 song blues rock country album released by Foghorn Records on 29 Sept 2017.
Tour dates to be announced. Album release party is on at Toukley on the Central Coast on Sat. 4 November
What’s your favourite work at this point in time?
The band has been practicing hard to provide a quality live performance of all the songs on the album and we are starting to arrange new songs written by me to bring to the live shows. The band and I are really looking forward to working on the new material as we continue to hone the songs from the album. After our very first gig as The Adam Jones Experience at the Krambach pub in country NSW (near Nabiac), which was a roaring success with the whole pub packed full with everyone dancing and applauding after every song, our favourite work must be doing live shows!
How would you describe your sound in food form and why?
A classic tasty starter such as freshly cooked garlic king prawns to represent the more ballady acoustic songs. A hearty steak with fresh veg for the more gutsy blues rock numbers, finishing with a sweet fruity cheesecake to represent the parting ‘gift’ on Little Death – the song ‘Trailblazers’.
Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.
In the first 3 days in Damien Gerard studios tracking for the album Little Death, the bass player on the album Jacob Hunt misheard the lyric in Charmed ‘I feel so charmed’ for ‘I feel so Jones’. Everyone at the studio thought that was funny and kept carrying on about it to the point where it has become our hashtag #IFeelSoJones.
What, or who, inspires you?
Life experiences, loving relationships, nature and the state of the human world continually inspires me with my songwriting, along with the work of other great musicians, past and present.
Which song do you wish you wrote?
‘Imagine’ by John Lennon – musically and lyrically, a brilliant song.
What’s next for you?
Lots of gigs, weekly band practices with hard work being put in on new material, and next year, start recording the next album, tentatively titled ‘Laugh Like Buddha’.
What’s your scene?
Music! I’m addicted. Reading about music, and listening, writing, playing, practicing, performing. I have 6 beautiful acoustic and electric guitars. I love songwriting, catching up with friends at gigs, doing my own live shows, and practicing with the band.
