Laney Jones

"I wanna be another rolling stone," Laney Jones declares on a dynamic new cut from her latest, forthcoming project, which, just like its author, defies convention and sets an intention for the exciting next chapter of her career.
A raw, versatile, and heartfelt performer, the East Nashville-based artist has spent the last few album cycles building a loyal following of fans who feel drawn to her innovative blend of cathartic lyricism, poetic word- play, and innovative melodies that draw comparisons to artists such as Neil Young, Courtney Barnett, John Lennon, Big Thief, and Jeff Tweedy of Wilco.

True to their word, all Laney Jones and her band, The Spirits, want to do these days is roll into your town and gently blow your mind with their unique brand of rustic Americana, psych-folk, and confessional indie rock.

A successful sync musician, Laney also creates under the moniker Koyotie, working with Position Music on ad syncs including movies and brands like IHG and Guinness.

“I describe my songs as ‘mantra songs,’” Laney adds. “I'm not a religious person, but I am spiritual. I wanna sing stuff that gets people to a higher vibration.”
