The Artist

When speaking about his artist, label president Dave Moody states that, “his songwriting is relevant and fresh, and he has a vocal style all his own.” Reiterating that same sentiment manager Michael Stover continues by saying “Jiggley has that one-of-a-kind sound…his songs will touch you and move you with their beautiful lyrics and melodic strength.” Two great descriptions that encompass the musical attitude of his Lamon Records Nashville debut release titled “A Mountain, A Struggle, A Tunnel, A Light.”

 

Let’s not let the word “debut” fool you though. Just like the title of his 4 song independent EP release, “No Spring Chicken”, Jiggley himself has lived. “Lets face it, I’m not 18 anymore and thank God for that”, says Jones. “I’m no longer coming from a place that I have to in order to fit in, I’m coming from a place that is different because that is what I’ve become.

The New Record


The new record starts off with the single “Walk On Me,” a melodic and slightly melancholy tune that deals with the difficulties of forgiveness and then switches completely around with a nice mellow “jazzy” number called “Look What I Found”, a love song that focuses on the idea of lucking out and finding that person who you consider a “diamond in the ruff.”

 

The third song is a powerful melodic metaphor about being ship wrecked on a deserted island (which actually represents a person’s life) and up washes a bottle with a note in it that is a message of hope. “Hope In A Bottle” is a song that sticks with you and makes you want to come back for more. Quickly afterwards the music jumps into the song “Nothing So Natural” with an infectious beat that carries the whole way through. There is nothing more natural then a parent’s love for their children.

 

The fifth track is an acoustic number called “Early Morning Light” which deals with the fear of losing a love during those times when things might be getting a little stale. The album finishes out with a strong, upbeat tune called “Man On The Run” with the line … hey, tell me who’s the man… bringing out that positive, forward moving lifestyle that keeps things going in the right direction.
