Album Notes
FOR YOUR RADIO-a collection of acoustic americana pop songs. Portland's Willamette Week says that "any given verse of his songs packs more wit than a roomful of singer-songwriters could muster in a month of open mikes." FOR YOUR RADIO is low-fi, off the cuff indie/acoustic music at its best, before Dan plugged in and started The Squids...

After FOR YOUR RADIO, Dan Jones signed to Eugene's Leisure King Productions and recorded ONE MAN SUBMARINE, a collection of atmospheric story songs, blistering, garage-y rock and roll, and jangly, intellectual power pop. The Portland Oregonian calls One Man Sub "irresistably tuneful," while Positively Yeah Yeah Yeah calls the record "a stunning indie gem.... electric, haunting, spontaneous, and fun." (ALSO AVAILABLE ON CD BABY.)

Summer 2005 sees the release of Dan's third album, Get Sounds Now, a Guided-By-Crazy Horse bulletin knocked out on the fly with the help of his band, The Squids, featuring friends from Testface, White Hot Odyssey, The For Reals Pellet Gun, and The Visible Men. The Oregonian says Get Sounds Now "shines with Jones and The Squids musical maturity," citing iconic musical influences Lou Reed and The Minutemen. "The angst and angles within the story lines come across with a wry humor and sympathy...never the urgent, needy, in-your-face variety." The Eugene Weekly says "Jones scores with Get Sounds Now...strong song after strong song."

The Willamette Week calls Jones' work "brilliant" and "irresistable." As for his solo gigs, The Portland Mercury invites the listener to "smash your head against the acoustic punk rock." And Mike Watt says "I'm thinking D. Boon would dig a cat like Dan Jones."

Performing in the clubs and listening rooms around the Northwest, Dan has shared bills with The Decmberists, Marah, Curt Kirkwood, Mike Watt, Erin Mckeown, Steve Wynn, Love, Season To Risk, The Minus 5, Stew, Jason Ringenberg, James McMurtry, Peter Case, Clem Snide, Roy Harper and many others.
