Today’s the day! The highly anticipated solo release from singer-songwriter JONATHAN JONES (We Shot The Moon, Waking Ashland), COMMUNITY GROUP, is now available.
Located at his website (www.jonathanjonesmusic.com), you can purchase the album, stream the entire record for free, and download three songs – including a cover of Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up” – in exchange for an email address.
Community Group is a fan-funded, self-released album, made possible by Kickstarter, a website where supporters were given the opportunity 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 that accompany Jones’ smooth vocals. “I was dependent on these instruments as the backbone to this project, instead of always going to the guitar.”
