Biography

1-Luke Jones was a bandleader, alto and baritone sax player and clarinettist who was born in Louisiana but as an infant moved to Los Angeles. From the late 1930’s he was involved in the LA scene, playing for Lionel Hampton and Roy Milton before forming his own jump trio with pianist Betty Hall Jones and drummer/blues shouter George Vann. Between 1946 and 1949 he cut some two-dozen sides for the Atlas and Modern labels

2-Luke Jones was born in Hanover (Germany), during the first part of his childhood he was brought up on a British army based in Bergen, Honne but moved to a seaside town on the south coast of Dorset (UK) at the age of 10. Luke began to write songs at the age of 17 finding inspiration from a number of American based artists including Neil Young and REM. He soon developed a desperation to leave his new home due of financial struggles and frustrations with living in a small town, he eventually found his way to Brighton (UK). This move only enhanced his musical inspiration and expression. His passion for music was originally instilled upon him by his father at an early age, as it was a major feature within family life, this helped him significantly with the creation of his unique and powerful sound.
