The Bones of J.R. Jones is a project from singer, guitarist, and songwriter Jonathon Linaberry. Born in central New York State, Linaberry was introduced to making music first via the piano, and then the trombone, but later dropped them both for the sound of the guitar. He moved to Brooklyn after high school and became enamored with New York City’s punk rock scene. It wasn’t long before he was overtaken by blues and roots music after digging into some archival albums given to him by his parents. Playing one-man band style, stomping out rhythm while picking guitar or banjo, Linaberry adopted the stage name The Bones of J.R. Jones and released his first EP, The Wildness, in 2012. His most recent album Ones to Keep Close (2018) is his most impactful and fullest sounding record yet with guest spots from Nicole Atkins and Ian Chang, among many others. Check out The Bones of J.R. Jones’ live performance of his song The Drophere.
