Laurence Jones, at 23, is already making a big name for himself on the Blues circuit and is hailed as Britain’s hottest gunslinger.

The band has already played alongside some of the biggest names from the world of blues with Walter Trout inviting the band to support them on his 2013 UK tour. Walter says of Laurence “ Laurence is a cross between Eric Clapton and Buddy Guy - he is a genius, he sure has the feel”.

Laurence was voted “Young Artist of The Year” and “Guitarist of the year in the 2016 British Blues Awards and is nominated for “Best European Guitarist 2016” in the European Blues Awards having won the category in 2015.

He has just undertaken a heavy International touring schedule garnering rave reviews wherever he played. There are new plans in place to visit Spain, Poland, Italy, Belgium, Holland, Germany, The Caribbean, Norway, Denmark and even America so we are very fortunate to have secured his services for you at the New Crawdaddy.

His latest critically acclaimed release “Take Me High”, produced by the legendary Mike Vernon, has been labelled as the best album of his career to date.
