Guitarist, singer and songwriter Andrew Jr. Boy Jones was born into a musical family. He received his first guitar at the age of 7 and started out his professional career at 16 by joining Freddy King's Thunderbirds. During the 1970s and 1980s, the Dallas native backed-up many local musicians, before leaving for California in 1987 to join blues outfit Silent Partners. A few years later, Jones teamed up with harmonica player Charlie Musselwhite for three recordings, and finally went solo in 1997. His first album, I Need Time, was comprised of 11 self-penned titles. In 2009, the artist released Gettin' Real, his fifth offering of classic roadhouse blues. A dedicated performer, the guitarist has played live in a host of countries, including Lebanon, China and Chile.
