Biography:

Sam Jones is a British singer-songwriter, guitarist, recording artist & producer. Often working as a multi-instrumentalist, recording many tracks over several decades. A cross-section of which make up his live solo set. He is known for his slide guitar playing, use of Yamaha instruments & crooner vocal style. He was born in Chester, England & grew up in North Wales. He spent 12 years living in London until 2016 when he moved to Poland where he holds residency status. He has embarked on four self-booked, self-financed & self-promoted solo European tours since April 2016 with multiple mini-tours of France, Belgium & Poland. He’s even toured the Isle of Man. His debut foreign show was in Poland at Cafe Mięsna in Poznań in 2007. He set up his own booking agency/record label Camouflage Booking/Camouflage Records & sells limited edition CDs & USB sticks online or after shows. A series of bootleg-style limited edition CD live albums have been produced each with additional demo/studio bonus tracks. An ongoing official album entitled ‘Retrospective’ is compiled from studio & live recordings. The album acts as an introduction to his songwriting with some notable contributors. Comprehensive track by track details act as an online inlay card & are frequently updated on his website. He’s worked with several established musicians such as Ged Lynn (The Stairs), Charlie Harper (UK Subs), Brian James (The Damned) & PJ (Anti-Nowhere League), he even appeared on a track with Charlie Heaton (Jonathan Byers in ‘Stranger Things‘). He’s already gained the respect of many well-known industry insiders such as journalist John Robb. During 2017 & 2018 he fronted Polish Mod-Punk band Angry Town. The name of the band refers to Gniewkowo, where the original line-up met for the first time during a solo concert of Jones. Sam’s musical journey through several power-trios led to the creation of the band. He reused the name to release two lockdown-singles in 2020, both singles featured a politically motivated promotional video premiered on YouTube. Angry Town returned to the stage in 2022 as a 2-piece outfit supporting Sham 69 in Poland. An official album entitled ‘No Second Chance‘ was released on CD in March & remastered by Tim Turan for all digital platforms release in October this year. As the frontman of his various power-trio carnations or as a solo performer, he’s played support for several well-known acts including Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson), The Coral & Polish band Kobranocka. As well as his music his unique mod/alternative hybrid sense of style caught the eye of fashion label Relco London in 2017 who used him to model their clothes & he is featured on their website alongside the band Blue Nation. Sam has a new collaboration with DressCode Shirts & Mazeys. He has worked as a featured artiste in films such as Tim Burton’s ‘Sweeney Todd‘ & the Ian Dury biopic ‘Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll‘. Sam has played in many of Europe’s key cities such as Liverpool, Berlin, Prague, Kraków, Dublin, Paris, Brussels as well as some pretty unusual locations like the former ghost town Bussana Vecchia in Italy. His experiences have resulted in a book of memoirs & travel advice entitled ‘A Musician’s Guide to Europe’. Since September 2023 he has adopted the moniker ‘Samuel Thomas Jones’ for a series of acoustic & slide guitar shows, demoing & showcasing new compositions ‘Doggerland’, ‘Spinning Jenny’ & ‘Wishing Well’.
