JONATHAN JONES, current singer of We Shot The Moon and former singer of rock quartet Waking Ashland, has just released “Duracell,” the first track being made available from his upcoming solo album Community Group, out June 14.
Located at his website (www.jonathanjonesmusic.com), the song is available for unlimited streaming and a free download, if you provide a valid email address.
Community Group is a fan-funded, self-released album, made possible by Kickstarter, a website where supporters were able to pledge money to Jones in order to help him finance this new release. “The title of the album largely (but not entirely) comes from the Kickstarter experience of making a record in a non-traditional community setting with my fans,” says Jones.
“I wrote this album looking to challenge myself on making a recording that was a departure from my previous projects’ over-produced sound.” Community Group features an array of instruments, such as a string quartet, brass, harp, and a heavy dose of piano. “I was dependent on these instruments as the backbone to this project, instead of always going to the guitar.”
Community Group is currently available for pre-order.
