Acoustic Journey Q&A

Photo by Anthony D'Angio
Your name: 
Andrew Jones.

Where are you from? 
Brackley, Northamptonshire.

Name of band: 
Acoustic Journey.

Who else is in your band? 
Ben Gurney & Andy Sammons.

How would you describe yourselves? 
We are a beers and barbecues kinda country music.

Who are your main influences musically? 
There are so many great artists out there at the moment its difficult to say. I guess we owe a lot of our sound to the likes of Big & Rich, Rascal Flatts and Chris Cagle, but that has developed into our own style over time as we write and play together more.

What do you hope to achieve in music? 
It would be amazing to head out to Nashville and play some shows over there for the homegrown country fans. We just love to play live and that's where our main pull is in our opinion. Getting some acceptance from an American audience would definitely be a high point.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
Playing at C2C Country to Country 2015 has to be the highlight thus far, a great crowd for our set and meeting so many amazing people, both artists and fans. Also, getting to share a few beers with the UK’s rising country music stars really made the weekend awesome!

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
Missing a support slot with our friends Dexeter due to illness was not my best moment, can’t help being ill though I suppose.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why? 
It would have to be Real Good Feel Good. We try to keep all our tracks as upbeat feel good tunes and relate to our younger years (not too long ago) hanging out at St James’s Lake in Brackley, drinking beers and cooking out on disposable BBQs, much to the annoyance of the dog walkers. It’s quite a small town so we generally knew who they were! We still get out to the lake a couple of times a summer but not so easy now we all have full time jobs and families to look after.

Where can we listen to it? or you can download it from iTunes.

Where can we find out more about your music?
