Laurence was handed the award for “Young Artist of the Year,” at the 2014 British Blues Awards ceremony held at the Great British RnB Festival in Colne, Lancashire.

Laurence Jones Is 22 years old and is already making a big name for himself. “Laurence is like a young Robin Trower, exciting and full of energy” – BBC Radio 2

The young gunslinger of the blues Laurence Jones has sensationally signed a deal with “Ruf Records”. His Debut album for the label and 2nd album for Laurence was recorded at the Legendary Dockside Studio in Louisiana where artists such as B.B King and Derek trucks have recorded. A catalogue of big names appear on the album including Walter Trout, Aynsley Lister, Yonrico Scott, Charlie Wooton and producer Mike Zito.

Laurence was invited to tour with Kenny Wayne Shepherd on his U.K Tour after hearing there was a buzz about the young man. On the last night of the tour Kenny asked Laurence to jam with him on stage. “Laurence sure has the blues in his soul” – KWS

Walter Trout invited the band to support them on his 2013 U.K tour “Laurence is a cross between Eric Clapton & Buddy Guy he is a genius” – “Walter Trout”

A Buzz has been building rapidly around Laurence Jones, starting well before the release of his 2012 “Thunder In The Sky”. Since then Laurence has clocked up some serious road miles from touring through out the U.K and Europe.

+ Red Butler

With a burning desire to entertain and pursue a serious music career, at the age of 18 Alex Butler decided to form a band.  April 2012 saw the beginning of the blues/rock band emerge as Red Butler with Alex Butler (guitar), Charlie Simpson (drums), Jane Pearce (vocals) and Steve Eveleigh (bass).  July 2014 saw Mike Topp replace Steve.

Drawing upon influences from SRV, Etta James, Joe Bonamassa, Gary Moore, Free, King King, Santana and Derek Trucks the band have developed their own style of writing and have begun producing thoughtful, light hearted and melodic compositions.  The band have been mentioned a number of times by the blues media culminating in the award for ‘Best New UK Act’ 2014 via the Writers Poll for Blues Matters!

Following the successful launch of their debut album ‘Freedom Bound’ in summer 2014 the band are working hard on new material for a follow up album.   Considerable interest has been shown in this project, which should come to fruition towards the latter part of 2015.

Heightened exposure has brought many rewards and Red Butler are now receiving invitations to perform throughout the country at forthcoming festivals and high profile support slots.
