We recently crossed paths with Ben Jones. He’s a Musical Director and Guitarist whose staple studio work includes Jimmy Napes, Mary J Blige, Nate James, Lalah Hathaway, Kelly Rowland among others! When we got talking we started to get a clearer picture of the breadth of his career so far...
A frequent performer at London’s famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz venue, he’s played with Natalie WIlliams’ Soul Family and collaborated with Tawiah, Level 42 ‘s PB Underground and another friend of Musicpsych and jazz / blues prodigy, Scott McKeon. He’s also toured with extensively with Tinie Tempah, Will Young, Pixie Lott and Westlife.
Ben runs his own musical project in conjunction with Basement Jaxx vocalist Vula Malinga - called DivaGeek (Diva represents Malinga and geek is a self-depriciative description of what Ben’s own music production backround braings to the project).
Ben came into contact with us as a Strymon user, his Timeline and BlueSky are staples for his current day-job (or night job) as guitarist with the house band for ITV’s the voice. He indicated that both pedals are indispensable and are taking over the pedalboards of everyone he comes into contact with professionally… nice of him to say!
