Hailing from deep in the heart of Shropshire, and now sharing his time between the French Alps and the folk-infused depths of Cornwall, Al is an authentic British singer-songwriter. With his easy charm, road-worn voice and modern folk sound, Al can work any crowd.
Al has been duly touring the South West circuit for years, playing to sell-out crowds at venues like the Eden Project in support of international stars such as Jack Johnson and Paolo Nutini. The excited buzz around his shows in the Alps have earned him support gigs for KT Tunstall, Newton Faulkner and Squeeze at both the Altitude and Little World festivals.
After a great year of new releases, including airplay on BBC Radio 2 (Dermot O’Leary show), BBC 6 Music (Tom Robinson, BBCIntroducing Mixtape) and great reviews on Fresh On The Net. His debut album, Come Alive, has just been released to critical acclaim. The future is looking very bright indeed for this humble but most impressive British musical talent.

“The day was amazing and the band were brilliant. Al's guitar at the ceremony was perfect and him and the band in the evening were incredible - played the first dance perfectly and then the whole set was awesome. There was genuinely never a single moment when the dance floor wasn't packed with people. The band were so great they even didn't take a break and just played straight through! And it was really nice they'd learned and played some Elvis tunes especially for us. They honestly couldn't have been any more perfect. We had loads of people saying they were the best wedding band they've ever seen. Thanks again- it genuinely made the event ”

“I just wanted to send you an email post our wedding with al Jones.
To put it briefly....... he was absolutely brilliant. Played a chilled set for the reception and really rocked the place for the start of the party after dinner. His energy and enthusiasm were amazing and he really made the day. Every guest commented about how brilliant and talented he was and he really did make the day something special and memorable. Charming lovely guy as well. I would highly recommend him to anyone and I know that there will be lots of people from the wedding trying to book him for future events. Thanks for all your help and as I say, al really made the day for us.”
