Southpaw Jones Indie, Singer-songwriter, Folk

Southpaw Jones treads lightly on the thin ice of irreverent honesty. Being left-handed, he naturally turns his guitar upside-down to play more comfortably. Being a creative little brother, he naturally turns the world upside-down to make his audience squirm with delight.

Southpaw has resided in Houston, Nashville, and Los Angeles, and he now calls Austin home. He performs solo, if not with Matt the Electrician, reaching out to find those open-minded folks who thirst for singable melodies and one-of-a-kind lyrics. Online, SouthpawJones.com warehouses 69 original songs with more on the way.

Critics say he has “that most amazing ability to be hilarious and heartbreaking at the same time,” and his songs are “at once political, personal, serious, hilarious, lucid, and muddled.” Author Spike Gillespie calls him “the left-handed Elvis Costello and the best songwriter in the land.” Southpaw calls himself “Slim” and sleeps in the fetal position.

Southpaw has had the honor of opening shows for Dan Bern, Terri Hendrix, James McMurtry, Slaid Cleaves, Fred Eaglesmith, and Lisa Loeb, performing in legendary listening rooms from coast to coast. He has performed with 5 instruments in 17 states during the past 15 years, but who’s counting?
