* AN INTRODUCTION BY JOHN DEXTER JONES TO LIFE ON THE HARD SHOULDER

I’m a musician. I’m a singer. I’m a frontman. I’m a songwriter.

I knew I would be in a band when:
1 – I watched Top Of The Pops in the 1970s
2 – Alan Holmes introduced me to music beyond the singles charts
3 – Huw Heywood bought a guitar

I’m in a band called JUMP. That’s been the position since 1990. Before that I was in a band called THIEF, before that, a band called RUTTERKIN and before that, WHITE SUMMER. Recorded material exists of all those bands but the JUMP catalogue of thirteen studio albums and two live albums is the one for which, in certain circles, I am known.

During my career with JUMP, I have had the privilege to tour with and appear on the same bill as many wonderful artists, some of whom are people I have admired for as long as I can remember. Live appearances number well into four figures. That’s a lot of pubs, clubs, arts centres, theatres and arenas.

I’m a collaborator too. I’ve worked on a number of musical projects as a singer, writer and producer.

I’m here if you have an idea.
