Jonathon Robert Linaberry has visited us twice before, last in 2018 just before we moved into our new facility. As insulating as solo musicianship can be, J.R. finds comfort in reflecting on how much The Bones Of J.R. Jones has grown in the last year. His new album marked the first time J.R. felt able to adequately flesh out his ideas in the studio without feeling rushed.
The result is a crisp, expertly produced collection of stomp-along songs that evoke a vivid spectrum of feeling: pain, fear, excitement, joy, longing, regret. “I had this perspective of what I wanted this album to be, which is a studio moment. Knowing myself well enough, I had the perspective of the prior two albums, and how they felt a little mish-mashed. And so having the studio as a goal to work these songs toward was the main impetus... I’m totally proud of the album and what we produced.”
