Labeled as the “Darlings of Triple A Radio,” Freddy Jones Band has a storied history in the format. With two number one hits and several top tens, the Chicago roots band has strummed its way to the forefront of the national music scene. Staying true to the breezy melodic lyrics and echo acoustic guitar they’ve come to be known for, the band will be releasing their new album in June of 2015. Three-time Grammy winner producer/engineer and mixer Justin Niebank (Taylor Swift, Sheryl Crow, Kid Rock and on and on) and label partner Timm Martin have helped FJB create what Niebank says is “the best record he has worked on in over three years!” And with the myriad of number one records Niebank has worked on that says a lot! The first single, “Those Diamonds,” will drop first quarter of 2015 and Niebank calls it “an undeniable hit song.”
The founding members of Freddy Jones Band, Marty Lloyd and Wayne Healy, began writing and crafting the new songs along with Niebank during informal demo sessions. Marty and Wayne tested the new songs at performances across the country. Audiences were treated to novel material in vulnerable and raw acoustic performances straight from the writing sessions. Feedback was so strong tracking began immediately in Nashville alongside with Nashville’s most celebrated studio musicians. All original members of FJB also participated in the final tracks.
For all of the charting success the band has enjoyed, Freddy Jones Band may just be in its finest hour sitting on its soon-to-be most inspirational and popular work to date.
