New Albm ‘micro’ is now available

Hey Folks

After two years of painful and rewarding recording, editing, chopping, re-recording, editing, tweaking and general fiddling around, my fifth album ‘micro’ is now available to the general public. (you can buy a hard copy at cdbaby)

I am thrilled with the way it has turned out, and am very excited for you all to hear it.

Please do let me know what you think via email – it means a great deal to me.

thanks again for listening

Wow… long time, no posts

i can’t believe how long it has been since i’ve taken the time to update this area.

the year has been flying by.

callum turned one year old in october, and you can read all about our family activities here:

http://shonesy.blogspot.com/

as for the music world, fear not. the fifth album is feverishly being worked on, and i expect to have it completed by christmas.

the working title is ‘micro’, and i’m very happy with the content. final editing is the hardest for me. i’ve said it before, and i’ll say it again – when is ok to sit back and say ‘there…. now it’s finished’ ?

at any rate, work is progressing, and i’m dealing with the artwork details, liner notes, credits, etc as well as trying to polish off the tracks musically and taking care of mastering….

keep your fingers crossed, and i’ll hopefully be posting a little more often in the near future.

all the best

Tradewinds Update – Patchword.mp3

Wind

hi kids.

i’m pleased to announce that we have a new tradewinds song for your listening pleasure available in the “tradewinds” section.

the name of the track is PATCHWORK, and was written by max floatation and chez jonesy in the darkest corners of our respective studios. again, the concept of tradewinds starts with a seed track that is bounced back and forth between contributors until a final product is arrived at. in the case of PATCHWORK, there were about five back and forths.

we’re both really happy with how it turned out, and hope that you enjoy it too.

keep making music

Sorry for the lack of updates….. :-(

Things have been very hectic since the arrival of our son Callum.

He is doing great, but music production has taken a slight hit.

That is not to say that things have stopped altogether.

Work on the new album is coming along nicely, and there are a few cool tracks in the works. I’m hoping that an album can be wrapped up by Christmas, but more on that later.

Lastly, here’s a little pic of young Callum at three months and change. We have inserted a picture of one of the original Wizard of Oz munchkins into the picture, as we believe that we have at last found Callum’s real father.

Keep making music!

Moon Tunes Update

Moon Imagejust a note to let you all know that there is a nice update in the Moon Tunes section (scroll to the bottom). long overdue to get them uploaded, but well worth the wait,  i assure you! there are some really great tracks there.  One set of jams dates back to March of 2007 (two tracks there to listen to), and the other set were recorded at the end of September 2007 (six tracks to listen to).

as with all moon tune jams, these tracks are all in the original, recorded condition, and have not been modified – one take, one song. that’s how it rolls, kids.

enjoy, and tell us what you think!

Say ‘hi’ to Callum Owen Jones

 Callum 1

Well, he made it! It was an arduous process, but the little guy finally decided to poke his head into this relatively cold world and see what all the fuss is about.

It was quite a difficult time for my wife Shona, but at the end of the day, it was all worth it.

This kid has great rythm, and even better lungs. I have written a song called Callum’s Arrival, and I’ll share it with you as soon as it’s edited. Like Callum, the song really kicks!

 Peace

Momma Jonesy is getting big!

It’s been a long time since no posts, but that is not to say that nothing has been happening in the Jonestown.

First off, Momma Jonesy is now only 4 weeks away from the due date. You can check out her tummy progression here:

I’m starting to get a little crazy with anticipation.

My buddy Tony painted this picture based on an early ultrasound pic that we had. He is a very talented artist. You can (and should) check out his art here: http://www.tonyramsell.com/

Micro Painting

 

He is very talented, and has done a lot of great work around Vancouver. You can also see a bunch of his recent works on display at The Five Point bar on Main St, corner 16th ave.

Regarding music stuff, I’m please to announce that we have finally settled into our new house, and the studio construction is more or less complete. New room, new sounds. I’m still sorting out a lot of the gear, and getting it set up just right, but for the most part, we’re up and running again in the new and improved Jonestown.

New music is on the way, and new tracks for the latest (fifth) album are in development. Still too early to say when the release will be, but I’ll let you all know.

Take care everyone.

Micro Jones is On the Way!

I just realized that I haven’t share the exciting news here: Chez Jonesy and Shona Jones are going to be bringing a baby into this world.

Here’s a pic of the little one at 12 weeks.

 Micro Jones at 12 Weeks

 

Until we figure out whether it’s a boy or a girl, we are calling it MICRO Jones. Obviously, I’m more happy with this name than Shona, but she’s being a good sport. We’ve decided not to learn the sex of the baby, and wait until the actual birth day until the surprise is revealed.

 Also, Shona has put together a blog where you can follow all of the Jones family developments.
