Hailing from Shoreline, Washington, the Stacy Jones Band is a four-piece band with one foot in blues and another in Americana/roots rock. Spearheaded by singer-songwriter Stacy Jones, the winner of the 2015 IMEA (International Music and Entertainment Association) award for Best Blues Song for her song “Can’t Do Nothin’ Right” off the band’s newest album Whiskey, Wine, & Water, the band takes a decidedly driving, rocking approach to blues and Americana music, to the point where the band’s music arguably borders on southern rock.

Stacy Jones is nominated time and time again for “Best of the Blues” awards in songwriting, performance, harmonica, guitar, and winning vocalist of the year. She has performed at the Chicago Blues Festival, SXSW, juke joints in Mississippi, river boats in California, headlined festivals, and more, in the process sharing stages with the likes of Elvin Bishop, Lee Oskar, Charlie Musselwhite, and many other legends.
