who is chez jonesy?
chez jonesy (aka colin jones) was born in montreal, quebec,
canada in 1973.
music has been a part of my life for as long as i can
remember. we always had music playing around the house
growing up. we had piano lessons, an old drum kit that we
would beat up on, a bunch of old keyboards to make noises
with, and parents that were sympathetic and patient.
back in 1998, a friend of mine gave me an old accoustic
guitar, and i started to teach myself how to play. from
there. i started buying little gadgets, boxes, and doo dads
that i could use to record myself.
after a lot of tweaking, we slowly built a recording system
that produces some pretty good quality sounds.
i suppose that my musical goals are pretty vast. if i could
do music as a full-time career, i would. but as it stands
now, i subsidize my passion with a quote-unquote real job
that i also love.
the music i make is fundamentally pleasing to me. selfishly,
i enjoy driving around and listening to my own tunes. i am
truly thrilled when people tell me that they had a good
experience while listening to a chez jonesy track.
i guess that's what it's all about for me... making music
that i like, and hopefully, that other people like too.
i'll add more here as it occurs to me...
