Seattle's own; Darin Jones(28) and San Antonio native; Caleb Fischer(25), comprise the powerhouse front men of Seattle, Washington's newest upcoming original country/rock group: Jones & Fischer! Move over Nashville, this band proves that the standard formula for which makes a country band successful and commercial is child's play! They are doing it all themselves the old fashioned way, learning and honing their craft and gaining new fans one show at a time with a full time schedule. All six members of J & F are multi-instrumentalists covering a lot of musical ground with saxophone, banjo, mandolin, keyboard, fiddle, harmonica, drums, stand up bass, acoustic and electric guitar. Front men Darin Jones(Lead guitar/lead vocals) and Caleb Fischer(Acoustic guitar/lead vocals) are the heart, soul and namesake of the group who write and sing all of the groups songs. "Everything we do revolves around the song and what it calls for. Having 6 guys on stage could be a recipe for dynamic disaster but we pride ourselves on our ability to play for the song. Our originals are our bread and butter, if you don't have the original songs to push yourselves then your just spinning your wheels doing what someone else has already done and said" says Jones. "We're not trying to be anything other than what we are; two guys who love good music that doesn't fallow trends or whats just popular right now. Our music is honest and personal and what you hear in our songs is what we have lived and it sure as hell ain't just about trucks and backroads!" says Fischer.
Darin Jones's guitar playing is the anchor of the bands sound and unlike most any you'll see or hear today. There are echo's of 70's southern rock soul, 80's souring lead melody, 90's spank-twang country chicken' picken' and that big something that just makes him stand out in a saturated industry of guitar players with an in-your-face tone that not only grabs your attention but demands it! He has a bellowing full voice with a fast natural vibrato that pairs nicely with the groups ballad and mid-tempo songs.
Caleb Fischer is a trained and polished musician who spent early years in school bands honing the fundamentals of music and being a virtuoso of several instruments including trombone, piano and guitar before deciding to pursue country music after serving in the US Navy. His rhythm guitar kicks off several of the bands songs and his soulful vocals give just the right amount of twang to make him stand out amongst the country crowd while giving a contrasting but complimenting tone to Jones's. especially while harmonizing.
