Atticus Jones is a songwriting duo forged out of the love of music and songs that mean something. Daniel spends his time noodling away on the guitar, creating the bits and pieces that inspire the songs of Atticus Jones. There's no rhyme or reason to the way he goes about things. He just starts playing and then keeps going. Obsessed with the guitar, he is surrounded at home by acoustic and electric guitars and all the paraphernalia and toys that come with them. If you watch Daniel begin the process of songwriting, you can’t help wondering whether he is concentrating on the song or whether he is thinking about what he can make the guitar do next... how he can make it sound. Eventually he plays the bits and pieces to Scott and if Scott's head turns quickly, then it's more than likely that there's a song in the making.
After Scott is exposed to these musical fragments, he can't sleep at night because of the voices in his head that whisper lyrics and hum tunes. Scott has many inspirations for songs, most of which leap out at him from the chord progressions which then through some mental osmosis merge with his observations of the world around him. He says he actually feels like the song gets under his skin and he has to get it out. Either way, no matter what the starting point - whether it’s the chords matching the world or the other way around - some time passes and, after some deep thought, 50 fragmented ideas on an iPhone and some paper, a song comes out that both Daniel and Scott think is the best song they've written so far. They fall in love with every single song they write.
Together, they have written over 30 songs and it doesn’t look like there’s any chance of stopping. Their songs mean a lot to them and the people in their lives. Songs about family and friends. Songs about justice and injustice. Songs of triumph and of failure. Oh and yes, there’s a few in there about love and love gone wrong. Hey... what would a songwriting duo be if they didn’t write some love songs. They hope you enjoy their music and share it with your friends because that’s all that they are hoping for...that people will listen and enjoy their music. They want it to have an effect on people, after all, that’s what art is about. Maybe drop them a line and tell them what you think. They’d love to know.
