with Bird and Byron
On his debut solo album, Wait Til I Get Over, Durand Jones lays us several courses and flavors of sound that are all distinctly Southern and Black—rhythms heavy with raw, Delta grit; bright exhalations of church spirituals; even tender, cadent spoken word.
As one of the singers and principle songwriters of Durand Jones and the Indications, Jones’s professional creative efforts have been, for the most part, in aggregate. On Wait Til I Get Over, Jones leans into the vulnerability of his singular perspective, delivering something utterly distilled and potent. Taken as a whole, Wait Til I Get Over is a mesmerizing new addition to Southern Black music, affirming Jones as a uniquely gifted artist and vanguard of the form.
Bird and Byron are a soul and rock duo based in Nashville, TN. Lead vocalist Bird and instrumentalist Byron fuse together their love of old and new classics into a unique soulful expression. They will be touring with a full band in support of their self-titled debut album.
