By: Jiggley Jones
2018 Started out as a usual year of music promotion for Jiggley Jones' Latest Album "Not Your Typical Day Out", and his single release "Truth Seeker". Little did he know at the time that the reception for the new music would be mind-boggling?
In late February, he engaged a CMJ Radio Promoter to push the record on College Radio. In the initial 4 weeks of the campaign, music program directors were adding his songs to rotation. This further enhanced his creditability and he began becoming known as an acclaimed artist throughout the college radio circuit. He was also interviewed in many popular music blogs and digital music publications such as Scope Magazine, Vents Magazine, Razorfish, Cashbox, and many others. Previously charting on the Roots music report, New Music Weekly Internet Country Charts, and many others with previous records, -Not Your Typical Day Out, by Jiggly Jones is destined to repeat that success and much more.
The idiosyncratic nature of Jones' songwriting is underlined by the title of his latest release. The ten cuts on Not Your Typical Day Out and his single Truth Seeker are filled with the shrewd observations of experience and character we've come to associate with his lyrical inventions. Jones' works well towards ensuring that those lyric concoctions are accompanied by substantive musical vehicles and the playing serves the song without ever lapsing into over-indulgent virtuosity. It has the sort of taste and discernment you expect from a performer who has graced prominent stages from New York City's The Bitter End, Wilmington Delaware's The Word Café, Nashville's Music Festival, and experienced a fair amount of chart success while never compromising his musical vision. All of the awards and laurels he's received never matter though. Jiggley Jones is still fluid, still resisting stasis and moving as an artist, and we are compelled to follow along. Unlike a lot of other indie artists, he never tries to be anything else but himself.
Formally signed to a Nashville recording label, Jones made the decision in 2017 to part ways with the label and release his new record "Not Your Typical Day Out" independently. Like a great deal of other signed artists, he felt that the label was not providing the kind of promotion they promised him, and in general, were absent from their duties. Essentially, they were intent on creating an image that was not a part of Jones' wheelhouse, ultimately preventing him to just be himself.
Jones has produced an outstanding and expansive release with Not Your Typical Day Out outstripping his fine preceding EP releases and opening the door for an even brighter and more diverse future. Jones has talent in enough supply that he freely moves from style to style like a musical magpie with such a thorough mastery of his craft he can take on any sound and make it resonate as something all his own. The talent illustrated by this release tells us everything we need to know about why Jones has appeared at numerous important festival shows and drawn significant crowds to well known-venues.
It's true that 2018 has become a break-out year for the songs and obvious talent of Jiggley Jones. Even though he has been at it for quite a while, he has absolutely no intention of stopping now. The only mystery surrounding the aura of this eclectic musician is where he will take us next with his music in the remainder of 2018 and beyond. What mastery can his fans expect next from future recordings? Who knows? But that is one of the best parts of following this unpredictable artist. One thing we know for sure, it can only get better. If that's possible -- Follow this amazing artist at his official website to keep up with what he is doing, and how he will blow your socks off with his future recordings and performances. www.jiggleyjones.com
