Sam Jones is British singer-songwriter, guitarist, recording artist & producer. Often working as a multi-instrumentalist, recording many tracks over several decades. A cross-section of which make up his live solo set. He is known for his slide guitar playing, use of Yamaha instruments & crooner vocal style.
He’s worked with several established musicians such as Ged Lynn (The Stairs), Charlie Harper (UK Subs), Brian James (The Damned) & PJ (Anti-Nowhere League), he even appeared on a track with Charlie Heaton (Jonathan Byers in ‘Stranger Things‘) and already gained the respect of many well-known industry insiders such as journalist John Robb.
During 2017 & 2018 he fronted Polish Mod-Punk band Angry Town. The name of the band refers to Gniewkowo, where the original line-up met for the first time during a solo concert of Jones.
Angry Town returned to the stage in 2022 as a 2-piece outfit supporting Sham 69 in Poland. An official album entitled ‘No Second Chance‘ has been released on CD in March this year.
As well as his music his unique mod/alternative hybrid sense of style caught the eye of fashion label Relco London in 2017 who used him to model their clothes & he is featured on their website alongside the band Blue Nation.
He has worked as a featured artiste in films such as Tim Burton’s ‘Sweeney Todd‘ & the Ian Dury biopic ‘Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll‘.
Sam has played in many of Europe’s key cities such as Liverpool, Berlin, Prague, Kraków, Dublin, Paris, Brussels as well as some pretty unusual locations like the former ghost town Bussana Vecchia in Italy. His experiences have resulted in a book of memoirs & travel advice entitled ‘A Musician’s Guide to Europe’.
