Somewhere deep inside each of our souls is a place of extreme longing… a desire for connection, acceptance, hope, joy, forgiveness, and most of all for love. Los Angeles singer songwriter Littleton Jones captures these emotions, fills them with melody and rhyme, and delivers them to soul searching fans of alternative pop, classic rock, and folk music. Most engaging is the sense of intimacy in his voice, honesty in his lyrics, and the feeling that his songs are our songs. It's as if he weaved all our life's experiences together with his and gave us a voice to comfort us.
In the sweltering New Jersey dawn of August 2003, the ac wall unit at The Dancing Goat was anxiously preparing for its biggest challenge. Performing for a sold out crowd of 200 devoted friends and fans, local favorite Littleton Jones subsequently released his 12-track debut cd Somewhere Deep Inside. This is where the party began. After two full years of local performances throughout the NY/NJ Metropolitan area, Littleton Jones "took a left and headed West" to reunite with long-time friend and producer Seth von Paulus. Jones packed his suburban sedan with as much as he could possibly fit, leaving everything else behind. Boxes of grade school valentines, poofy mittens and itchy scarves, worn out bibles and baseball cards. Even his cherished, very first, nylon string classical Sango guitar did not make the cut. The cross country journey to one of the biggest musical capitals of the world would be one that he would never forget, nor regret. Littleton Jones, welcome to LA.
Silverspoon Rebel, his 2012 FIVE-SONG DIGITAL EP, chronicles the songwriter's physical and spiritual cross-country journey from East to West. Folk rock roots, acoustic & electric instrumentation, intuitive storytelling.
Jones has also written a Christmas song which was released in December of 2005 and performed by a very peculiar Brit named Lord Weatherby. The song Santa Claus Is Freaking Me Out has received significant airplay and has won numerous awards including Grand Prize Winner of the 2005 Nashville International Christmas Song Contest and First Place Winner (Comedy/Novelty) of the 2006 USA Songwriting Competition. Most recently, the song placed in the 2011 Top 50 AirPlay Direct Holiday/Christmas charts (Best #34).
