Saturday, 20. July 2019, Frankie's Blue Room, Columbia Jones

Over the last 5 years, Americana musician out of Salt Lake City, Utah Columbia Jones has been quietly grinding away. It started out drumming for and booking gigs for a local Folk Rock group 5 years ago. With them he performed all over the Mountain West. As time went on he transitioned to being the leader of his own group. Writing songs, booking shows, and hiring musicians. Suddenly, last year Columbia Clocked over 11 gigs in 13 states. Anyone who knows him though knows that his quiet success is no surprise. Always a quiet and un-assuming kid, he was incredibly shy throughout his early years and struggled being charismatic and having many friends. Yet when he sets his mind to something it happens. That's why you can be excused for not having heard of him. While some spend hours a day making Instagram videos and auto-tuned recordings of themselves, Columbia has been busy. Playing dive bars, restaurants, street corners, and venues from Nashville to San Francisco. What he has become now though is nothing short of an amazing performer. 

This spring, Columbia releases his debut album after a number of EP's. His full length however shows incredible growth only found from playing and traveling the country. With help from his part time touring band his songs have matured as they dabble in heartbreak, hard work, family life, and the birth of his first child. With a little fun thrown in there for good measure.

Be sure to catch Columbia Jones on his national tour this summer playing a dynamic solo performance. Its part songwriter night, part One-Man-Band, part blues band, and part rock concert. You'll seldom find an artist put on such a unique performance. But more then his One-Man-Band under-pinning, he has talent, an incredible voice, depth in his songwriting, and employs all limb coordination for a dizzying performance. This is a not-to-miss event coming to a city near you.
