Jiggley Jones won the hearts of ArtSees Diner Radio a spell back and now he is back with his new single, "Walk On Me." When asking Jiggley "how do you classify your genre of music?" Do not be surprised to get an answer such as; "I sing Jiggley-esque!" Some people you just cannot box in, and categorize. Jiggley is exactly that type of singer/songwriter.
However you want to look at this picture, whether it’s Americana, Wide Open Country, or acoustic whatever, this artist represents life, hope, and human nature as only a seasoned person can see it. His Top 5 Roots Music Report debut EP, (#3, Americana/Roots Country, #3 True Country) No Spring Chicken included the singles “Baby Blue” and “Ain’t That Alright,” and the accompanying videos, which received more than 300,000 combined Youtube views. Now, Jones is returning with his first album on Lamon Records Nashville. A Mountain, A Struggle, A Tunnel, A Light was produced by Grammy nominee, Dave Moody. First single and video, “Walk On Me” were released in April 2014.
