JW Jones, the award-winning Canadian blues rock guitarist and singer-songwriter, will release his new album High Temperature on Solid Blues Records via Proper Distribution in the UK and Europe on Friday 20th October 2017.

The album dovetails an 18-date nationwide UK tour starting at the Worthing Pavilion on Thursday 23rd November.

High Temperature, produced by Nashville-based Colin Linden, recently won Best Self-Released CD at the 2017 International Blues Challenge (via Blues Foundation in Memphis), and was also named the Hot Shot Debut on the Billboard top ten.

On the new LP, Linden takes JW into new territory with warm, analog-driven tones, and a wide-range of material. JW’s evolution as a musician and vocalist shines through like never before.

High Temperature is the follow-up to JW’s Juno Award nominated 2014 album Belmont Boulevard, which was nominated for a Maple Blues Award, and held the number one position on Canadian roots radio stations for thirteen weeks.
