Andrew Jones: Presented by Sou’wester Arts

Since arriving in Portland in 2009 the multifarious bassist, composer and songwriter has been hard to pin down, working with an incredibly diverse roster of artists. His unique sense of musicality has found a home playing and making records with songwriters, rock bands, jazz composers, avante-improvisers, and hip-hop and live electronic acts. Jones has also collaborated with dancers and visual artists as well as visiting experimentalists and theater productions via the Improvisation Summit of Portland and Time Based Arts Festivals. Outside of the NW, Andrew has had recurring work with artists from New York and Los Angeles, most recently an international touring stint with acclaimed songwriter/composer Julia Holter. The two connected when Jones’ opened for her with his own project, The Crenshaw, with drummer Chris Johnedis. That duo’s full length album features Jones singing darkly comic and cathartic lyrics in counterpoint to upright bass ostinatos, off-kilter beats and psychedelic synth samples. For his forthcoming record, Andrew has been working under the name ‘and/or you’ with Mike Lockwood on drums.
