SongVault Artist Profile
North Carolina, United States
Rock / Alternative
Charlotte, North Carolina’s Wicked Jones exists at the crossroads where the inspirations for Guns N’ Roses and Al Green intersect. Finding such a mysterious junction may make your GPS freeze up in utter confusion, but it exists, trust me. Robert Johnson may not have sold his soul to the devil there, but he’d likely feel right at home along this freestyle freeway. This is because Wicked Jones creates hard rock with soul. (Or was that soul that rocks hard?) And before you scoff at the notion, ask yourself this sincere question: Was Jimi Hendrix a rock star or a soul singer? (If you answered “both”, you’ve proven my point).
Wicked Jones recorded 'Gone Racin' for Lee Roy Mercer's prank call CD appropriately named 'Gone Racin'(Warhead Records). Music videos for ‘Under My Skin’ and ‘Shoot the Black’ by NASCAR producer Derek Pernesiglio introduced national broadcasts of Speed Channel’s ‘Trackside Live’. The affiliation with NASCAR doesn't end there. Also, Wicked Jones has music featured on Jimmie Johnson’s 2007 NASCAR Championship DVD.
Wicked Jones has earned the privilege of performing live events with Flyleaf, Nappy Roots, Powerman 5000, Stuck Mojo, Dilana, Broken Teeth, Lynyrd Skynyrd, 3 Doors Down and Shooter Jennings.
