Info for Tulsa Custom

Seth Lee Jones not only relishes his Oklahoma roots, but he actively nurtures them to ensure they remain real and relevant. His sophomore studio release, Tulsa Custom, reflects his strong work ethic, continually developing his unique playing style that complements his original material and fresh interpretations of covers. Distinguished in any number of ways, with songs spawned from a decidedly personal perspective, include the visceral delivery of opening cut, “110,” the steadfast strut of songs such as “Mr. Evil” and “Outta My Mind”, and the brash boogie style of “Good Dog”, played in 5/4 time, an untypical time signature for blues & Americana.

“The process seems to come naturally these days”, says Jones. No surprise, given his dynamite rhythm section of Bo Hallford – bass and Matt Teegarden – drums, providing the perfect platform to launch his raw, unbridled roots & blues rock hot rod. Recorded almost entirely live at Teegarden Studios in Tulsa, OK, the passion and energy that is captured is palpable. In the words of Goldmine—”It’s pure electricity.”

“Jones is probably the most ear-catching, head-turning blues/roots guitarist since Derek Trucks” (Guitar World)

“Seth Lee Jones is one of the most intriguing American guitarists working right now and he’s going to take a whole bunch of people to school if he’s given half a chance.” (Rock & Blues Muse)

Seth Lee Jones
A third-generation guitar player and a skilled luthier, Jones was born into a musical family in Tulsa, moving to Los Angeles at fifteen. He later studied classical and jazz at LA Valley College and graduated from Hollywood’s Musicians Institute at the top of his class. Jones returned to his hometown in 2010 when the lure of affordable housing and an inspiring local music scene proved irresistible. His first release was Live at the Colony (2018).

Jones regularly finds time to pursue his parallel passion as a guitarist, and performs with his band as well as musician Jared Tyler and the band Saugeye. In the past, he’s played with roots country musician Jacob Tovar and the jazz-influenced Gogo Plumbay. He also played on the critically lauded Back To Paradise: A Tulsa Tribute To Okie Music.

started playing music as a kid growing up in Tulsa, Oklahoma. After a decade away from home out West, Seth came back to Oklahoma to ply his trade as a luthier and to compose music. Through what he calls a “happy little accident,” he started playing a unique style of slide guitar that uses bender palm pedals, producing mesmerizing gritty sounds that borrow from the deep in the influence well of the history of American music.
