Joshua Scott Jones, best know as part of the country duo Steel Magnolia, is going solo!
Jones has just released his debut single, “Honk (If You’re Tonky),” and the track is available now on iTunes and other digital outlets. Regarding the new single, Joshua had this to share: “‘Honk (If You’re Tonky)’ spoke very loudly to me right off the bat as an anthem for guys. It speaks to the misunderstood side of men, that makes us rough around the edges while carrying the burden of a big heart and just wanting to live in harmony with yourself. What better than an ‘anthem’ for a first single?” You can stream and take a listen to the track here: http://youtu.be/feWZnCS5iHs.
The song serves as the lead single to his upcoming album, The Healing, due out later this year. You name the role, Joshua took it on with this album. From singing, writing, and playing multiple instruments (guitar, piano and even some percussion) to executive producing, this very personal album is all Joshua.
He explained: “It feels like a long time coming. It’s like moving into a new home or getting a new car; you have strong sentiment and deep attachment for the old car, but are eager to get behind the wheel of the new one.” He continued on to say, “I feel like at this point in my life as an artist, I can’t be anything but candid. The record certainly reflects my headspace over the last few years and tells the story of what I’ve gone through, especially the title track of the record, ‘The Healing.’”
Jones will be a playing a public showcase during Country Radio Seminar (CRS) week, Wednesday, February 19th at 12th & Porter. There, fans will get an advanced listen of his new material.
Jones is also looking forward to hitting the road again and connecting with the audience. Tour dates will be announced soon so stay tuned.
