The album, originally released in 2016, continues to receive critical praise:

“In recent years, we've lost several modern-day standard-bearers of vintage soul, including Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley. So it's a heartwarming treat to hear the torch passed to a new generation of spirited future stars like Durand Jones, a Bayou-bred belter whose recent debut rings that much truer for its $452.11 budget.” –NPR Music

“Ran the gamut from James Brown to vintage Stax.” –Billboard

“Smartly restrained music steeped in the Deep South.” –The Philadepphia Inquirer

“With a tingling rasp that screams James Brown and coos Otis Redding, Jones simply has to be heard to be believed on these vintage R&B pleas.” –Paste

“Modern soul that pulls with as much power as Lee Fields and Charles Bradley.” –Detroit Metro Times

“Jones and company create that timeless sense of excitement with an infinite kind of energy that bridges the R&B of today with yesterday.” –Impose

In support of the release, the band will take their lauded live show on the road in the U.S. and Europe, with stops in New York, Los Angeles, Nashville, San Francisco, Chicago, London, Paris and Amsterdam as well as performances at Bonnaroo, SXSW, The Great Escape and BottleRock. Tickets can be purchased at durandjonesandtheindications.com. See below for complete details.

A native of rural Hillaryville, Louisiana, Durand Jones was a self-composed childhood “introvert” brought out of his shell when his grandmother gifted him an alto saxophone, which he played all the way through a BA in general music education from South Eastern Louisiana University and on up to post-grad study at Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. Once in Bloomington, Jones joined and toured with the all-sax Kinari Quartet, performing complex chamber music and winning international awards in the process.

Initially, Jones was recruited to write and arrange horn parts for the IU Soul Revue but when the act fell short of singers, he was asked to step up to the mic. Fronting the Revue also brought him into contact with The Indications’ drummer / vocalist Aaron Frazer and guitarist Blake Rhein. With the addition of bassist Kyle Houpt, the group began writing and recording on a trusty TASCAM 4-track. Four years performing together onstage had schooled the musicians to play live and loud while the immersion in classic soul taught Jones, Frazer and Rhein the craft of songwriting and arranging.
