The Extended Play Sessions Host An Up-and-Coming Roots Act
The Extended Play Sessions American Roots Music Television announced that old-timey bluegrassy roots act Laney Jones and the Spirits will be in the studio for a Session on Friday, April 24th at 7 pm. I may be a bit biased since I know this act well, but this Session is one not to be missed!
Come share some fabulous music and friendship at this Session!
“this is beautiful … She’s on to something original, that as an artist she’s on to something new… You got it going on and I can’t wait to see what you’re gonna do next!” – Alison Krauss, speaking about Laney on PBS’s Great Performances
“Raised on an exotic animal farm in rural Mount Dora, FL, Laney Jones sings tales of love and adventure with a voice that has been described as “a mix of lemon, molasses, gin and gunpowder” (WPRK), mellifluous and smooth but brimming with passion. Her live performance highlights her multi-instrumental prowess on banjo, ukulele, tenor guitar and harmonica backed by her band the Spirits. Since releasing her first studio album Golden Road in 2013, she has traveled far from the orange groves and marshes of her home, graduating from Berklee College of Music and playing festival stages from coast to coast.
“This past January, Jones was featured on the PBS series, Great Performances. The 90-minute documentary offers an overview of the Kennedy Center’s American Voices weekend-long festival and features Laney as an emerging artist alongside musical great Alison Krauss. Additional accolades for the band include invites to SXSW, Sundance, a formal IBMA showcase and a Southern Musician Sponsorship from Belk Department Stores which earned her performances with Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban. Laney Jones and the Spirits are set to release their next album in fall 2015.”
This is a unique “speakeasy” with very limited seating for just 40 lucky souls; every seat is no more than 25 feet from the stage.
No flash photography or professional video cameras are allowed but you may take photos during the show… just turn off your flash and silence your cameras/phones.
