(RESURRECTION RECORDS) - "Inspired To Write You," Joshua Scott Jones' record debut, ellicits a soulful element that introduces the listener to an energy that drips with raw emotion. Although only 24 years old, Jones' comes across as an old soul as he captivates his audience with a charming charisma that translates through his compositions. His passionate performances coupled with his arresting, melodic voice belies his age. Jones' music is edgy, heartfelt, and sincere which is clearly evident in "Moon Beams," but can also be angry, sexual, romantic, and soulful while never straying from that unexplainable "thing" that sets him apart and makes people listen.

Joshua Scott Jones remarkable ascent to the top has a humble genesis. Growing up in the Midwest, Jones wrote and performed his first song at the age of 13 and by age 17, began touring the Midwest and gaining momentum as a solo performer. It was not unsual for Jones to skip town on a whim and make his way by playing on street corners throughout the U.S.-literally singing for his supper. After getting his feet wet singing on corners in the Miami area, Jones decided to test the Hollywood music scene. Months after succeeding in establishing connections, Jones returned home to the Midwest with a resurrected vivaciousness added to his songwriting that is still prevalent in his performances to this day.

Joshua Scott Jones has been influenced by a wide array of artists rangning from The Beatles, to Sublime, to Frank Sinatra, to D'Angelo. At times, Jones has an ultra-cocksure personality that may be misconstrued as intimidating. By contrast, he can come across as sensitive, introverted, humble and insecure. Jones has been frequently known to throw back a few which can sometimes lead to unintended brawls.

"Inspired To Write You" is a catchy, groundbreaking display of emotional depth rarely conveyed in music today. Jones' almost seemingly effortless voice and guitar driven melodies connects with listeners on a transcendent level that leaves fans with an unquenchable thirst for more.
