Nate Jones Band/Guggy's Rock & Roll 101/Top Hat Black/Jason Patrick Meyers

When: Fri., Dec. 12, 8:30 p.m. 2014

For singer-songwriter Nate Jones, a Cleveland native who recently moved to San Francisco, the time he spent playing and recording in Northeast Ohio was essential to his development as a musician. His new album, The Nate Jones Band EP, is a terrific collection of diverse songs that shows off his incredible range. He alternately evokes smooth operators such as James Taylor and more contemporary neo-soul guys like Amos Lee. ones grew up listening to classic singer-songwriters such as Paul Simon and James Taylor. Those musical influences come across on the EP, a nice showcase for his naturally soulful voice. On the album’s first single, “Another Night, Another Town,” he sings with a bit of drawl, giving it an alt-country feel. The organ riffs in the song also give it a roots rock vibe. But he doesn’t necessarily think his music fits into the alt-country mold. (Niesel)
