The Bones of J.R. Jones
The Bones of J.R. Jones
When Jonathon Robert Linaberry needs a break from city life, he goes Upstate, near the Catskills, to renovate a little farmhouse he purchased a couple of years back. As he pours himself into his work, J.R. doesn’t think about texts, email, or even his music, which he performs solo under the moniker The Bones Of J.R. Jones. His only focus is the house.

“That’s been an amazing emotional outlet for me,” he says of his periodic retreats. “To kind of sustain myself after coming from the road and getting back into the grind of the city, to have this, for lack of a better term, Shangri-La.”

In a sense, recording and touring as The Bones Of J.R. Jones is its own form of isolation. But you wouldn’t immediately think so: As a one-man band, J.R.’s project, which fuses a moody blend of soul, blues, roots, and Americana, sounds enormous both on record and live in concert. That’s because J.R. plays—and has grown accustomed to playing—every instrument by himself.

He’s happy to report, though, that he’s a lot less solitary on his forthcoming third full-length album, Ones To Keep Close, which is due to arrive on May 11. In addition to workshopping the 11-track album with producer and good friend Rob Niederpruem at Hyperballad Music in Brooklyn, J.R. also called on soul-psych luminary Nicole Atkins, who guests on the album’s jangly lead single, “Burden.”
Lerin Herzer
Lerin Herzer
While growing up in the Seattle area, singer/songwriter Lerin Herzer had a love for the cinematic scores that set the tone of some of her favorite movies. At four years old, after hearing a particularly inspiring theme, she sat down at the piano and sounded out the notes. Her father, also a musician, heard her play and signed her up for piano lessons. Although she had training in classical music during those lessons, Lerin was always drawn more to cinematic scores and soundscapes tied to the movies she enjoyed. Lerin continued her formal music education in college, where she studied music theory and composition.
