LANEY JONES AND THE SPIRITS - $10 Fri Jul 10 2015 8pm @ 224 W Bruce St. Raised on an exotic animal farm in rural Mount Dora, FL, Laney Jones sings tales of love and adventure with a voice that has been described as “a mix of lemon, molasses, gin and gunpowder” (WPRK), mellifluous and smooth but brimming with passion. Her live performance highlights her multi-instrumental prowess on banjo, ukulele, tenor guitar and harmonica backed by her band the Spirits. Since releasing her first studio album Golden Road in 2013, she has traveled far from the orange groves and marshes of her home, graduating from Berklee College of Music and playing festival stages at Grey Fox, Shakori Hills, String Break, Lancaster Roots and Blues and numerous others. This past January, Jones was featured on the PBS series, Great Performances. The 90-minute documentary offers an overview of the Kennedy Center’s American Voices weekend-long festival and features Laney as an emerging artist alongside musical great Alison Krauss. Additional accolades for the band include invites to SXSW, Sundance, a formal IBMA showcase and a Southern Musician Sponsorship from Belk Department Stores which earned her performances with Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban. Laney Jones and the Spirits are set to release their next album in fall 2015. http://concertedefforts.com/roster/laney-jones-spirits/ Get your tickets at the link below-- https://anodynecoffee.com/shop/shop/laneyjones/Tickets Save I'm Going!

“That’s really beautiful….Very exciting! I can’t wait to see what you’re gonna do next.”
— Alison Krauss, speaking about Laney on PBS’s Great Performances
“… a thing that brims with as much sweet innocence as it does rich craft.”

“With their critically adored 2013 debut studio album Golden Road and a feature on PBS’s Great Performances under their belts, Laney Jones and the Spirits are certainly a band to watch. Alison Krauss certainly thinks so—the country superstar described their work as “beautiful and original.” Miss Jones has a voice like honey and whiskey and can play a mean banjo, but this Berklee College of Music graduate and her band are still evolving their sound. They’ve been criss-crossing the country recently to advance their long-awaited follow-up album, expected later this year.”
