Stacy Jones – Whiskey, Wine & Water – A Review

Read our review of Whiskey, Wine & Water by Stacy Jones

stacy jones whiskey wine & waterThe new release from Stacy Jones Whiskey, Wine & Water is a pumping concoction of blues and Southern Rock, led by Jones’s muscular and soaring vocals.

Stacy Jones hails from Washington State.  She has twice won the Best Female Vocalist award from the Washington Blues Society.  Her voice compares with Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi.  That’s how well she sings.

Whiskey, Wine & Water (released on March 27 2015) was produced by Jones and Floyd Reitsma (Pearl Jam and Dave Mathews) and recorded at Studio Litho in Seattle, WA.  This collection of twelve homespun, original songs about love, lost love, whiskey drinking and life on the road is engaging.  Key tracks for me are “Can’t Do Nothin’ Right” (about mucking up and forgiveness), “Dreams” (her father co-wrote this one before she was born), “Hole In My Sole” (inspired by the passing of the great JJ Cale), “4 Days More” (about hope and excitement) and “To Be Loved”.

With her fourth studio album, Stacy Jones shows off her country, folk and Americana roots while having her cowboy boots well entrenched in dusty blues and soul.  Jones has shared the stage with Elvin Bishop and Charlie Musselwhite and has made appearances at SXSW (South-By-South-West Austin TX), Chicago Blues Festival and Beale St.Memphis during the International Blues Challenge.

Her talent is awaiting the next level of recognition and I suspect it won’t be that long.

There’s not a lot of excellent quality clips of Stacy Jones that I could find, but this one will sure give you a good idea of her abilities – a song called “Heavy Water” performed back in 2011.
