ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The story of RADIOJONES begins with Paul Trudeau- a prolific songwriter who has written songs heard on popular TV shows including JAG, Charmed, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Ed and Meet My Folks, as well as the movie Murder by Numbers. On top of a busy songwriting schedule, Trudeau has also toured extensively playing keyboards and guitar with Lifehouse, Suzanna Hoffs, Meredith Brooks, Leah Andreone, Blinker The Star and Jude Cole. While on tour with Lifehouse, Trudeau met guitarist and songwriter Brady Michaels - who was touring with Michelle Branch - and the two struck up plans to start writing together. A few years later, after a writing session that produced some of their best material, they decided to devote their full attention to the songs clamoring from within. Bassist Mark Corben was invited to join the new outfit and he brought along drummer Darren L. Elpant of 10 Speed. Even at their first rehearsal it was immediately evident that the group's chemistry and dedication to song craft shone through.

The resulting songs heard on RADIOJONES' self-titled debut album have a timeless feel reminiscent of artists like Elliott Smith, The Beatles, Lemonheads, The Jayhawks and The Wallflowers. There's a poignant urgency to melancholy tracks like "Desperately" - where Trudeau's earnest yearning for a lost love sounds both hopeful and wistful as he sings, "I still need you/ desperately". It's there again in the lovelorn woe of "Wait" that speaks for us all just as it speaks for one. Elsewhere, "Think" is a bopping pop song in the great tradition of Simon & Garfunkel, replete with saloon pianos, swinging drums, strummed acoustic guitars and light swells of a string section. The entrancing "Converse & Jeans" ends the disc with a somber and sweet droning tone as Trudeau repeats over and over, as if a mantra, "feels like I'm dying inside/ and I can never go home."

Steve

...a real buried gem...
This one was a real buried gem from last summer. RadioJones (or is it Radiojones?) is pretty much a mainstream-sounding band in the vein of The Wallflowers or Counting Crows, but what sets them apart is the quality of the tunes. And unlike most albums, which are front-loaded, this one gets better as it goes on. While the first three tracks are nice enough, it's not until about the fourth track, the ballad "Wait", that they really get on a roll; from there, the uptempo "Think" jangles along in fine fashion; "We All Dance" is quality Americana, and "Don't Tell Sandy" has a chorus that will worm its way into your head. Another standout is "Helpless", an excellent midtempo number, complete with whistling in the break.

Terry Gladstone - 95.5 KLOS

Reminds me a little bit of Train...great mleodic rock with a dynamic lead singer
Radiojones was featured on an episode of Local Licks on 95.5 KLOS in Los Angeles back in April 2005. Back then they were called All American Tragedy but had to change their name. Terry said it was one of the best editions of local licks and was blown away by the record.
