Since the spring of 2005 this quirky band has been performing and recording their distinctive style of folky swing. In November of 2006 they released their first official album, “Love and Circumstances.”
Christabel and the Jons is currently recording their highly anticipated second album, which is as of yet untitled… Meanwhile they continue to tour, mostly around the southeast region but with periodic voyages to the northeast, southwest, and pacific northwest. They can often be found in thrift stores as they travel from town to town, hunting for clip-on ties and 1950s party dresses.
Influences include: Nina Simone, Bob Dylan, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Greg Brown, Peggy Lee, Ray Charles, Malcolm Holcombe, The Red Stick Ramblers, Jolie Holland, Iron & Wine, Muddy Waters, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Taj Mahal, Joni Mitchell, Willie Nelson, Mississippi John Hurt, Paul Simon, The Beatles, the everybodyfields, Elvis, Feist, Madeleine Peyroux, Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys, Floyd Tillman, The Roots, Van Morrison, Al Green, National Public Radio, This American Life, Prairie Home Companion
Sounds like: “Sweet tea on a Sunday afternoon.” (Leslie Wylie)
