NEW SINGLE "Feel It or Not"
"Amnesia Jones" 2019
TIP THE ARTIST & SUPPORT INDEPENDENT MUSIC:
After the typical post-high school band breakup and a quick stint at an audio engineering school, Amnesia Jones quit his retail gig selling guitars in Auckland, New Zealand. Ditching the rat race to move even further from civilization, settling to record his first album & release in Waihi Beach.
Building a life on wheels, including a shoebox-sized home studio, he went to work creating a self-sufficient, self-sustaining sound. Keeping everything “in-house,” contrary to the twenty man songwriter teams prevalent in these last twenty years. In typical Kiwi DIY fashion; “If you want something done right, do it yourself.”
Also contrarian, dropping an entirely independent debut album in February 2019, unknown and unannounced. Amnesia Jones hopes to break through the haystack.
Letting the music speak for itself.
Bluesy, funky, jazzy, electronic, hopefully soulful, rockish music.
A new direction starting in 2021 with the release of the Deep/Tech House single "Polaroid" with Spotify playlisting on The Groove Lab by METATONE (Management for John Summit & Kyle Walker among others) and a great write up by at RDU:
"The first electronic release for Amnesia Jones’ ‘Polaroid’ is an exciting change of direction for the artist...Dreamy guitar melodies combine with a classic tech-house beat groove in ‘Polaroid’. The track is atmospheric and reminiscent of a lazy Summers day. Across the seven-minute run time, Jones does a great job keeping the listener engaged with an evolving sound palette...“Self-produced in Auckland under lockdown in an industrial warehouse, while halfway into a recording studio build, with no access to building supplies. Sleeping on a mattress under corrugated iron with no ceiling. Creating this helped me relax during these stressful times...”‘Polaroid’ is an impressive release from Amnesia Jones." Sam Dunlay.
A new, more vocal-heavy single "Feel It or Not" is due to release on the 3rd of December 2021, with plenty more singles to come at a steady rate. Breaking away from the album release structure to gain more traction in the musical climate of the future.
