Best known as the male half of the duo Steel Magnolia, Joshua Scott Jones is back with a successful debut single, deeply personal album The Healing set to release soon, and a run of solo tour dates beginning in early March. Joshua Scott Jones has been through some difficult times over the past few years. He has a lot to say, and fans are ready to listen.
Honk (If You’re Tonky)
The debut single “Honk (If You’re Tonky)” pairs powerful lyrics with a memorable hook. “Its an anthem for guys” according to Jones. Guys can harbor a rough side that is often misunderstood while really having a big heart. It speaks to living in harmony and being comfortable with yourself.
“This record is completely self produced so I feel more responsible for it in every way. My goal is for fans to feel every track, tap into who I am on a deeper lever and keep it on repeat for months on end” says Jones. Joshua Scott Jones typically doesn’t hold back much. Making himself more vulnerable than most, his songs reach out and make you feel the honest emotions along with him. The Healing may boast different song styles while still delivering an overall theme of reflection and the healing that follows.
The set list will include songs from the new album but blended with hints of Steel Magnolia. The show will flow from beginning to end with the hope that fans want to come back. Jones said the biggest difference will be transferring the interaction he gave to his duo partner to the fans in the audience.
“Songs are inspired by movies, music, personal things happen that make me emotional, anything really. You know how things build up and you finally get that good cry? That is the place where some of the best lyrics come from”, says Jones.
Joshua says one of the most meaningful songs on the new record is the title track, “The Healing”, which describes the calm he finally came to after years of personal highs and lows.
