The Headline is now Jon Amor Band who we are so pleased to have secured as Jon has a great history as a player and being part of the Hoax. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oH1FrIQlARg
Jon Amor is surely one of the finest song writing talents not to break into the mainstream of British music. Having already won much critical praise for his soulful, literate electric guitar work in the past, Amor's talent for penning honest, well-crafted songs is reaching new heights as he steps out as a solo artist.
Jon ruled the British Blues scene in the late nineties as guitarist in 'The Hoax', a band that released four critically acclaimed albums, won numerous awards and toured extensively in the UK, Europe and North America.
Robert Plant gives his endorsement of Amor's work with some trenchant harmonica work on the title track, and drummer Clive Deamer drives each song along in the same fashion he did with Portishead and Roni Size, among others. The EP bears Amor's hallmarks of freshness and originality, which is a pleasing omen for the full album which Jon is currently close to completing (working title 'Unknown Soldier')."Rocks with an edgy energy.... With a rangy voice that slips into an easy falsetto" The Times
"Amor should be ruling the British rootsy rock roost". Mojo Magazine
