Kim Jones / Press

“Kim Jones, coffee shop guruette will be playing the lunch hour on May 27th. Her style can be described as "folk rock with rich acoustic rhythms and melodic vocals supported by a rock groove." She received a lot of recent acclaim with many Colorado festival appearances as well as regular rotation on a few Denver radio stations. Her songs are mindful and in touch with the human spirit.”

“Singer-songwriter Kim Jones is a very strong singer with a very throaty, deep voice – she has been compared to Joni Mitchell, Melissa Etheridge, Patti Griffin. (My own comparison would be to KT Tunstall and Adele.) The musicians she’s got backing her on Lucky Girl, including Wendy Woo and Melanie Susuras on harmonies and Glenn Taylor on pedal steel – are first rate, as well as the compositions, which feature the standards rounded out by violins, viola, cello, and a host of horns. It is no surprise that she’s gotten her fair share of radio attention, including spins on Denver’s 99.5 The Mountain and 88.9 KRFC in Fort Collins. My only suggestion would be – granted my speakers at work on a computer aren’t that great, but to me it seems like there are some recording issues even though she promotes the fact that it was recorded and mixed by Colin Bricker at Mighty Fine Productions in Denver. ”

“Singer-songwriter Kim Jones, a native New Yorker, has put down roots in Denver, but if Road Dreams is any indication, she's got traveling on her mind. Several of the CD's tunes deal with voyages of one sort or another, including "Journeymen," which tells the immigration tale of her great-grandparents, and "Let's Sail Away," a title that wasn't chosen at random. Jones's lyrics aren't the freshest around (she relies too heavily on familiar imagery), but she's blessed with a warm, smoky voice and a first-rate group of local accompanists -- producer/keyboardist Lance Bendiksen and Subdudes vet John Magnie head the list -- whose playing is rich and inviting. With better material and a little help from her friends, Jones could be going places”
