This Local 101 comes from the Chicago-based solo artist Dan Jones. Check out the his bio as found on reverbnation!
Take Leonard Cohen’s lyrics, Jack Johnson’s vibe, and Johnny Cash’s voice, and you have Dan Jones. Born in Florida, raised in Georgia, and with Jamaican blood running through his veins (as fast as Usain Bolt), Dan Jones arrived in Illinois as a freshman at Wheaton College in 2008, and graduated in 2014. In the spring of 2012, he attended the Contemporary Music Center in Nashville, Tennessee. Here he was exposed to many of the inner workings of the music industry, and played the role of emcee during the semester’s tour around the Midwest. Upon returning to Wheaton College after the semester in Nashville, he was forced to take a year off of school. This year off, however was just what he needed to find his voice and begin to take his craft to the next level. Now with a college degree and nothing to do with it, Dan Jones is working, writing, and waiting, certain that his passion for music will one day become his career.
