Bio

Charlotte, North Carolina’s Wicked Jones exists at the crossroads where the inspirations for Guns N’ Roses and Al Green intersect. Finding such a mysterious junction may make your GPS freeze up in utter confusion, but it exists, trust me. Robert Johnson may not have sold his soul to the devil there, but he’d likely feel right at home along this freestyle freeway. This is because Wicked Jones creates hard rock with soul. (Or was that soul that rocks hard?) And before you scoff at the notion, ask yourself this sincere question: Was Jimi Hendrix a rock star or a soul singer? (If you answered “both”, you’ve proven my point).

Wicked Jones recorded 'Gone Racin' for Lee Roy Mercer's prank call CD appropriately named 'Gone Racin'(Warhead Records). Music videos for ‘Under My Skin’ and ‘Shoot the Black’ by NASCAR producer Derek Pernesiglio introduced national broadcasts of Speed Channel’s ‘Trackside Live’. The affiliation with NASCAR doesn't end there. Also, Wicked Jones has music featured on Jimmie Johnson’s 2007 NASCAR Championship DVD.

Wicked Jones has earned the privilege of performing live events with Flyleaf, Nappy Roots, Powerman 5000, Stuck Mojo, Dilana, Broken Teeth, Lynyrd Skynyrd, 3 Doors Down and Shooter Jennings.

Press
  • Kristin Day - Mixer Magazine on WICKED JONES

    “The band is tight and lead singer "G" D'Voldre switches between hardcore metal screams and soulful crooning impeccably. It's no wonder they got to play with Flyleaf.”Publication: http://www.reflector.com/mixer/must-hear-wicked-jones-151536.htmlDate:
  • NEW MUSIC SHOW 106.5 THE END (WEND - CHARLOTTE)

    "Wicked Jones has a very bright future. The talented musicians is just the start. The energy of the music will get your blood pumping and the catchy lyrics will stay with you long after the CD ends."Publication: Divakar Shukla Date:
  • YES! WEEKLY

    "This album may contain numerous lines and themes of provocative metaphors. These guys have either managed to incorporate what seems like an eclectic mix of genre influences or they’re musically confused. Either way, it works."Publication: Heather MacIntrye Date:
  • INDIE-MUSIC.COM

    "I love that they're experimenting with different genres and throwing unlikely bedfellows together."Publication: Beeb AshcroftDate:
  • THE VILLAGE IDIOT MAGAZINE

    "Their talents not only lie with their instruments, but in the studio as well. The four-some not only engineered a new sound fusion of soul and industrial rock, but produced their own album."Publication: Tiffany Allison Date:
  • THE VILLAGE IDIOT MAGAZINE

    "This four-piece band has just produced a explosive CD and every tune on it just plain jams. It is hard rock, metal and southern rock all wrapped up in a tight package just waiting to get out but it definitely has soul. If you can’t feel it you are dead."Publication: Rob Moore Date:
  • THE NEWS & OBSERVER

    "Wicked-good, Jonesing for more... Take soulful Southern rock and toss in a metallic edge, and that pretty much sums up the unlikely sound produced by Wicked Jones."Publication: Ed Condran Date:
  • FAYETTEVILLE OBSERVER

    "The band embraces suggestive lyrics on songs like the album’s title track, while effortlessly moving from Southern rock to soul to hardcore metal with the greatest of ease. There are a lot of influences involved in this band’s gritty sound, and they aren’t afraid to show it."Publication: Jessica DeVaultDate:
  • HEAVY METAL MAYHEM

    "I Was Not Expecting Much ,But Gave A Listen Anyway. Boy I'm Glad I Did, Because These Guys Are Amazing. This Is Some Of The Best Music Out There Today. "Publication: Mike "The Big Cheese" Date:
  • CRANKIT ENTERTAINMENT MAGAZINE

    "Their music touched me. Listening to their hits like “Sinister Love,” “Some Highway Head,” and “Supernatural Flesh” will show you what I mean. The pure dynamic sound of Sossomon's guitar with (or without) the slide, Kitchens crisp, and funky, bass play, Carter's precision drum play and "G's" soul-injected vocals make this band unique and one to hear.
