The Bones of J.R. Jones
The Bones of J.R. Jones
Linaberry remains a disciple of early 20th-century blues and folk artists like Blind Lemon Jefferson and Lightnin’ Hopkins, both of whom the singer discovered in his teenage years. Still, he readily admits more contemporary influences are beginning to creep into his musical oeuvre. “I like to think I’m casting a wider net,” Linaberry says, citing opening Spirit’s Furnace track “13 Kinds” and “I’m Your Broken Dog” as “major departures” for him, what with their heavy folk influences and electric guitar as opposed to his earlier more traditional blues numbers. “I definitely still listen to the folk and blues stuff, but I really try to make a conscious effort to listen to music outside that box — whether it be bands like Sylvan Esso or more pop-influenced stuff,” he adds. “Sometimes you have to find out what the kids are listening to!”

Part of his current challenge, he explains, is paying homage to his influences while still making his own mark. “I am hyperaware of the history that a lot of the music I play brings with it,” he says. “I’m trying my damnedest not to reinvent the wheel but carve out my own voice. It’s very tough to create something in this day and age with everything being a tap away without having a little history involved in it. But it’s about finding that balance where the music does feel fresh and new but also familiar at the same time.”

What has continued to define The Bones of J.R. Jones is the musician’s hypnotic live show. He operates as a one-man band — playing guitar, drums, and singing in unison, creating the feeling of a raucous blues band with more immediacy. However, as a result of his new album’s size and scope there has emerged a stirring impulse in him to bring other musicians onstage.. “These songs are big enough that if I wanted to have another drummer up there with me it would make sense,” he explains. “I’m trying to evolve the live show and the space it lives in.

Peter & The Tribe
Soul-stirring performers of punk, funk, rock & soul.

With their compact, dynamic songs of loss and longing, Peter and the Tribe resurrect a classic sound that moves your body. Combining blue-eyed soul with the grit of Seattle grunge, this power trio exudes passion and kills it everytime they take the stage.

Peter and the Tribe was born from break-ups. As a solo act, Peter Cameron meandered through the city, forging an arsenal of songs about failed relationships. Along the way, he was introduced to Dusty Scott Ross and Justin Pascua, who were playing in what would become Peter's favorite band in town. But things changed. That band broke up. Justin, Dusty and Peter started jamming together, and found a connection in their mutual losses.

Now, Peter and the Tribe are conquering hearts one gig at a time.
