After years supporting musical greats, Darryl Jones brings his own soulful roots rock to the stage, showcasing original songs and deep covers. His music tells stories from growing up on the South Side of Chicago and has influences from James Brown to Curtis Mayfield to the Beatles, as well as the legendary musicians with whom he has shared the stage. His impressive international touring and recording career began at age 21, with jazz icon Miles Davis.
