In this episode, had a chance to speak with Maine singer and songwriter Laurie Jones. We talked about her new album, Dark Horse, how the recording process and songwriting was different from her other albums, how Maine influences her as a musician, badass women, inspiration, and more!
ABOUT OUR GUEST:
Laurie Jones is an American Singer/songwriter that had been dubbed “the missing link between Dusty Springfield and Tom Petty. She has been referred to as “Chrissie Hynde with a folk guitar” and compared to Lucinda Williams and Sheryl Crow for her Americana and Folk-Rock influences. These comparisons she happily and humbly accepts. Influenced by a multitude of styles from Tom Petty, Suzanne Vega, and Fleetwood Mac, Jones combines the craft of songwriting with her own unique sounds that range from Rock to Gospel. Whether playing her songs acoustic solo, or backed by her rock solid band, Jones delivers the lyrical sass and musical punch she has built her reputation on.
