Jiggley Jones Provides a Soulful Acoustic EP That Shatters Expectations on A Mountain, A Struggle, A Tunnel, A Light
Listening to the songs definitely felt like more than just musical presentation. There’s soul here, and you get the picture as you start to listen to the tracks on a closer level. With the tracks moving so well together, you will be hard-pressed to pick a favorite. “Hope in a Bottle”, “Look What I Found”, “Modern Day”, “Nothing So Natural” and “Walk on Me” all present a unifying blend of music that has many layers. It’s not just one man and a guitar, there are other instruments that embrace your mind as you listen.
This is a very strong release, and one that will have you closing your eyes and listening closely to the layered approach of Jones’s production. It bridges a lot of different genres, but it stays home in a bluesy, pop, country way. It’s not too unlike Johnny Cash’s latter work, but with a taste for the modern. It’s hard to put Jiggley Jones in a box, because there are so many different connections that you can place within the course of the EP.
Overall, I would recommend "A Mountain, A Struggle, A Tunnel, A Light”, as it is a solid entry into modern music. It’s not confined to one genre, which is always a good thing. Jones’s voice carries the strength of the songs here, and it’s definitely an EP that wets your appetite for more. Keep track of this artist, you’re going to want to hear these songs again and again.It's a modern folk, country, alternative, acoustic rock EP that is hard to nail down with one description. Listen up and see what you think.
