Details

A literate and engaging song artist with echoes of Greg Brown, Lyle Lovett, Bruce Coburn and Daryl Scott, Christopher Mark Jones sings soulful country and blues-inflected Americana narratives.

He has “a rich voice that’s slightly rough around the edges” (Scott Mervis, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette), but still grabs the listener along with his “fascinating lyrics” (Melody Maker, UK) and his “intricate guitar-playing” and “wide-ranging textures and exquisite instrumentation” (Larry Berger, Saturday Light Brigade) . Listeners hear echoes of “Greg Brown's pacing and a Lyle Lovett attitude” (Ben Shannon), as well as of John Prine, Bruce Coburn and Darrell Scott.

Between careers as a basketball player and French professor, Jones busked in Paris, toured the UK, Denmark, and Holland, and played New England clubs. He now tours and streams solo from Pittsburgh, PA, and plays regionally in formats varying from solo to full band. Looking for the Light (2021) is his sixth recording of original folk/roots songs.

...Impeccable performances supporting Jones’ engaging lyrics and music, the fruits of four-plus decades of songwriting - Harry Funk, The Almanac
