Album presentation October 16, 2016, 16:00 - 17:30 hours


The Geldrop duo JansenJones present their first vinyl record album ′Breaking Waves′ on Sunday October 16 at 4 o′clock at the venue Heerenhuys23, Heuvel 23 in Geldrop. The EP is co-produced by Ed van Otterdijk and will be distributed by Piapella Music & Media.


Otterdijk: ″Jan and Jed have their own individual style which draws influence from the British rock and symphonic pop scene of the seventies. With Jed′s solid drums and fine vocals and Jan′s virtuoso guitar playing, they have created a unique sound on this record.″

Jan Jansen and Jed Jones are both well-known on the Eindhoven music scene. Both are currently active in the bands MacTaple and L′ATTAQUE, with Jan also playing guitar for 10 years with the band Broodje Earring. Both are also regular studio and session musicians.

Jed Jones toured for 12 years professionally across Europe with The Bogus Brothers before settling down with his family in the Netherlands. During that time he wrote a number of songs, with the intention to develop and record them at a later date.

Many years later he met guitarist Jan Jansen while playing drums in the backing band for his childrens′ school revue.

From this chance meeting their friendship developed, and with shared musical interests they began to work on the songs, bringing them to life and adding new material, lyrics and arrangements. Some of these were recorded in Jan′s own JJ Blues studio, and others in ′Piapella′ recording studio, owned and run by award-winning composer and producer Ed van Otterdijk, who later mixed the album.

These can now be heard on the new vinyl album "Breaking Waves". This will be presented on Sunday October 16 at 4 o′clock at the venue Heerenhuys 23, Geldrop, where some tracks will be performed live by Jed & Jan. You are cordially invited and very welcome to attend.

A compilation of the tracks can be heard here.
