This is an archive of the band profile for The Smokin Jones.

From a song-writing partnership spanning over 3 years, The Smokin Jones was formed in Leeds, UK, by singer Kris Jones and guitarist Kevin Sumpter after a chance encounter at a Shaun Ryder gig.

Having attained a White Label release with 'Days Like This' they went on to create a back catalogue comprising of in excess of 40 songs.

With the arrival of the experienced Mike Bedford on drums the amazing Adam G on guitar, and the newest member, Jono Hughes on bass, together with the collaboration with producer Will Jackson (Music/ Embrace/Kaiser Chief), The Smokin Jones are a unique song driven outfit - with anthemic power and feeling, their music is suffused with rolling melodies, great lyrics and searing guitars..
