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. “When I was in Cleveland, I started figuring out how to make music work as a full-time endeavor,” he told us last year. “I would fill in between club dates with bar and restaurant dates. I would just sit with a guitar and sing for hours. It was like a paid rehearsal. I developed a lot and because of that I became a much better singer in that year or year and a half. I started an acoustic trio that I expected to turn into an electric trio. It got stuck as an acoustic trio and that was good too. The last couple of years have been good stuff for development.” Jones grew up listening to classic singer-songwriters such as Paul Simon and James Taylor. Those musical influences come across on last year's The Nate Jones Band EP, a nice showcase for his naturally soulful voice. (Niesel)
