    DURAND JONES & THE INDICATIONS ANNOUNCE SPRING 2017 “MAKE A CHANGE” TOUR AND NEW 7″ SINGLE!

    “Back in July when Durand Jones & The Indications debut album was released, we had no idea what the world would think,” explains Terry Cole from Colemine Records. “After all, the record, albeit finely crafted, was conceived in a dingy Indiana basement on a shoestring budget of 452 dollars and 11 cents (we kept receipts). They didn’t have ‘buzz.’ They didn’t have a following. They didn’t have the measured flash of more polished operations. But as the final mixes spun off of the master reel, we knew what they did have was one remarkable soul record. To our delight, the record was a smash and their no-frills LP continues to fly off the shelves.”

    PREVIOUS PRESS RELEASE ANNOUNCING DURAND JONES & THE INDICATIONS 2016 SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM

    Bayou-born soul sensation, Durand Jones, is bringing his raw energy to Colemine Records with his debut self-titled LP. Jones brings you fiery original soul music, pairing soaring vocal work with dusty drums, slinking guitars and screaming organs.

    With a stellar background in gospel, Jones got his start in the church, singing in the choir of his hometown in rural Louisiana. When his music career took him to Bloomington, Indiana, he was selected to join the legendary Indiana University Soul Revue, and it was through his involvement that he met writer/producer duo Aaron Frazer and Blake Rhein. The three began writing original soul music, recording themselves straight to tape in the basements of Bloomington – a process which brings you the gritty sounds available on Ohio-based Colemine Records.

    Sure to satisfy fans of Charles Bradley, Lee Fields, Aloe Blacc and Leon Bridges.

  • Here’s what people are saying about Durand Jones & The Indications:

    • “Durand Jones has the wail of Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard, the nostalgic toe-popping vibes of Leon Bridges and a record to compete with both.” - THE OBSERVER
    • “Easily one of the best deep soul albums we've heard in years.” – DUSTY GROOVE
    • “ … a very sharp debut album… a total gem.” - THE VINYL DISTRICT
    • “Durand Jones & The Indications are soulful perfection on ‘Smile.’ The song, which will be instantly appealing to fans of the likes of Charles Bradley and Leon Bridges is the essence of soulful rock and roll.” - BULLETT
    • “Durand Jones and the Indications hearken back to a time when soul was recorded, performed, and (if possible) heard live.” – POPMATTERS
    • “… a terrific debut” - PURE VOLUME
    • [5/5 stars!] “If anyone tells you that soul music just ain't what it used to be, slug that person in the gut. OK, that's a bit severe. I shouldn't advocate belting a total stranger in the midsection. A better idea is to give that naysayer a copy of the new album from Durand Jones and The Indications. You only need to listen to the first couple bars of "Make a Move" to realize that this is soul music the way it used to be. Then you hear Jones's voice and it's hard not to think about singers like Sam Cooke. His voice is even and a little raspy. Oh, and he sings about social issues just like Curtis Mayfield… a first-rate soul band.” – EXAMINER
    • “Durand Jones is bringing classic soul music into the present.” - DC ROCK LIVE
    • “Durand Jones kicks it old-school with debut LP” – THE HERALD TIMES
    • “A perfect way to start any day, not just the weekend. Get some Durand Jones & The Indications in your life, you won’t regret it.” – FLEAMARKET FUNK
    • “Durand Jones & The Indications is a solid listen focusing on the intricacies of song craft and musicianship and comes highly recommended.” - TIGR TIGR
    • “… soul music that's so much of the old school that it might as well drive a car with fins.” - MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL
    • “…a phenomenal debut and modern soul record.” - EASY STREET RECORDS
    • “… a soulful beast. The album is beautifully produced, mostly straight to tape from a basement in Indiana, and awash with sexy horn lines, hooky Funk guitar and perfectly placed organ pads. Even with all this great music that The Indications has to offer, Jones absolutely dominates the songs with his powerful, soulful and ever-evolving voice.” - SPILL MAGAZINE
    • “If you’re a fan of acts like Leon Bridges and Charles Bradley, the old school sounds spewing out of Jones & The Indications’ promising debut will satisfy… this a band to keep an eye on.” - RHODE ISLAND CENTRAL NEWSPAPER
    • “… sure to be a classic of the modern soul era.” - A JOURNAL OF MUSIC THINGS
