Joshua Scott Jones Releases Debut Solo Single 'Honk (If You're Tonky)' New Album 'The Healing' Due Out Later In 2014

Best known as one half of the country duo Steel Magnolia, JOSHUA SCOTT JONES is now stepping out on his own, and has just released his debut solo single "Honk (If You're Tonky)." The song--available now on all digital retailers, including iTunes--sounds fresh and powerful and serves as an introduction toJOSHUA's forthcoming full-length album THE HEALING, due out later this year.

"'Honk (If You're Tonky)' spoke very loudly to me right off the bat as an anthem for guys," JOSHUA shares. "It speaks to the misunderstood side of men, that makes us rough around the edges while carrying the burden of a big heart and just wanting to live in harmony with yourself. What better than an 'anthem' for a first single?"

The singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist--who plays acoustic and electric guitar, piano and a littlepercussion on the album--also executively produced this very personal album. Three years since his last album release with Steel Magnolia, JOSHUA is looking forward to the next chapter of his career. "It feels like a long time coming. It's like moving into a new home or getting a new car; you have strong sentiment and deep attachment for the old car, but are eager to get behind the wheel of the new one." THE HEALING is a candid reflection of his life and the changes he's experienced since first arriving on the scene.

Of THE HEALING, JOSHUA explains, "I feel like at this point in my life as an artist, I can't be anything but candid. The record certainly reflects my headspace over the last few years and tells the story of what I've gone through, especially the title track of the record, 'The Healing.'"

Music fans in Nashville will have the privilege of getting an advance listen of JOSHUA's new material when he performs a free public showcase during Country Radio Seminar (CRS) week, Wednesday, February 19 at12th & Porter. JOSHUA's set starts at 9pm. Additional tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

"I always look forward to touring and at this point in my career connecting with a live audience and always trying to gain new fans is one of the things I look forward to most," JOSHUA says. "The set list will definitely include the songs on my solo record, but there will be hints of Steel Magnolia. I feel a kind of responsibility to the audience to make song choices that flow from start to finish and that build the show so they leave feeling satisfied and wanting to experience it again. That's my goal with every show."
