BOB JONES BIO
Written by Bill Dahl
There aren’t many people on the Chicago blues scene that have made names for themselves on their songwriting ability, but that’s precisely the case with Bob Jones.
Since he broke through to the bigtime by writing Artie “Blues Boy” White’s 1977 hit “Leanin’ Tree,” Bob has written unforgettable material time and again for the crème de la crème of blues and soul royalty, both in his Windy City hometown and on the Southern soul circuit. White, Cicero Blake, Lee Shot Williams, Willie Clayton, Pat Brown, Nolan Struck, Bobby “Slim” James, the late Little Milton and James Carr, and plenty more have relied on Bob to bring them guaranteed hits over the last three-plus decades, and Jones never lets his friends down. He’s collaborated with Memphis producer Quinton Claunch and the irrepressible Swamp Dogg, and he’s acted as a compositional mentor to Clayton. Read more at: http://www.bigtimeblues.net .
