Summer Time Sessions at County Arms

Continuing our Thursday Night Live & Unplugged Music Sessions we have our Second Confirmed act of Ryan Ashley Jones, formerly of The Hitchcock Rules!

Ryan, sounding like a cross between Cat Stevens and Randy Newman with perhaps a hint of Elvis Costello thrown in for good measure, began playing in a working man’s club in Cornwall when he was 16.

Playing love songs to cynical men and women who had developed world wearied dispositions became a staple of Ryan’s touring life. In 2009 The Hitchcock Rules were born, they quickly cranked “love songs” up to 11 and embarked on a 5 year adventure that would see them touring the UK more times than they care to remember, releasing two albums, several EP’s and burning the clutches out of at least 3 Renault Master Vans.

Following the demise of The Hitchcock Rules Ryan turned his hand to management taking on management and production duties for Americana band “Grey Dog”. They released album “Maps” and toured the UK festival scene, supporting artists such as Paolo Nutini and The Flaming Lips with Ryan playing bass. After Grey Dog came folk pop group “Kola” who released an EP “Ruins” and promptly decided that touring the UK was way to much like hard work.

Most recently, (like a snake eating its own tail), Ryan has gone back to playing the same working man’s club that he started in, only now with the cynical perspective of someone who has developed an eternal mistrust of anything made by Renault and a definite appreciation for what those poor souls back in 2001 had to endure.

We look forward to confirming more acts soon so keep those eyes peeled for events popping up in the next few weeks! For more information visit our Facebook, Instagram or Twitter pages. Just search for @CountyArmsTruro and you’ll find us!
