Furious Jones / Press

“The first thing that caught our attention here was the voice. At a point in time when folks either mope or try to sing way too perfectly, Tom Smith’s rough and raw vocals are a refreshing blast. Sounding somewhat similar to a very young Rod Stewart or Robert Plant, this guy can really belt out a tune.”

““This latest release from Furious Jones is a red hot statement from start to finish. It’s strong, song for song consistency and impressive song-writing touch that keeps coming at you. There is not a weak song on this entire catalogue period! The musicianship is 1st rate, the songs are short and sweet musical experiences and Smith is a master at satirical humor through music. Let me go on record by saying this is one of the best CD’s to slide across my desk this year!”

Cyrus Rhodes

““I can hear influences from The White Stripes, Led Zeppelin, Weezer, Foghat and Janes Addiction. These guys are like the Violent Femmes on steroids!” Cyrus Rhodes, 2014”

Indie Music Digest

“When I first arrived, this band called Furious Jones was playing. I caught the last half of their material, and liked what I heard. Their sound could be best described as a fast paced, overdriven rock and punk meld. What was impressive was that they were only a 2-piece with a guitarist and drummer. Tom Smith’s vocals were pretty impressive and had a classic rock feel. Sarah Smith rocked some awesome beats, and gave the music a punk-like drive. Formally known as Blacksmith, they were passing out free CD’s to anyone who would take one. Hit them up on Facebook, MySpace. Or check out http://www.FuriousJonesMusic.com. ”

““Their amps send a bouquet of rock ‘n’roll, Hendrix style blues and 90’s grunge into the crowd. This album is chock full of anecdotes. Smith’s vocals sound like Jack White doing a Johnny Rotten impression – they have the White rasp and are yelled with the intensity exhibited in Rotten’s Sex Pistol days.” ”
