From The Press
Praise for the band and The Spirit Speaks has been rolling in...check out some selected quotes!
"It was all joyful praise, brilliantly timed with one crescendo after another. If they hadn’t been playing in Webster Hall’s basement, they might have torn off the roof." - New York Times
"Modern practitioners of a long musical tradition...infusing their joyful, reverent songs with elements of vintage soul and R&B." - Wall Street Journal
"The music has the feel of a Sunday service but also the quality of a top-rated musical group." - Houston Chronicle
"When a gospel band blows away the heathens at SXSW time after time, the rest of us should take notice. Hot stuff that goes beyond the limitations of whatever your beliefs are." - Midwest Record
"Soulful and tender, yet powerful and moving at the same time...don’t miss out on this unique experience." - Fleamarket Funk
"Their fiery forthcoming LP The Spirit Speaks is recommended to fans of Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and Aretha Franklin’s Amazing Grace." – Rolling Stone
"The Jones Family Singers should definitely be on your must see list." – Noisey/Vice
"Hailing from Bay City, the Jones Family Singers bring more than just a joyful noise. The three-generation gospel collective's high-energy performances are the living embodiment of the indelible connection between the black church and its rock & soul offspring." – Austin Chronicle
"The music offers variety, depth, soul, sophistication, selection and sequencing that illuminate the full range of their artistry...crisp arrangements that don’t sacrifice any vitality for the sake of polish." – Texas Music Magazine
"Insistent, no nonsense delivery, like Tina Turner and Mahalia Jackson wrapped into one." - New York Music Daily
