Apostle Jones long story short: we come bearing the gifts of Rock’n’Blues and Soul!


… a little more info …

The name and personification that is Apostle Jones was inspired by one of Mikey’s paintings, depicting a young man being visited by a ghostly spirit of the infamous 27 Club (e.g., Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix). The illuminated songster, from the center of the universe offers an instrument and a message for the tragic hero: “Go on, baby! And fix yourself but do it through music and help others find their swagger along their way. And do it with some style and sauce...” well… maybe not in those words exactly but the dream lives on! Thank you for joining us on our journey.

See you soon fam…
Peace, Love and Soul.
