Britain’s hottest gunslinger. Blues-rock’s most legendary producer. If the hook-up between Laurence Jones and Mike Vernon sounds mouthwatering on paper, just wait until you hear Take Me High. Released in July 2016 on Ruf Records, this fourth album represents a spiritual passing of the baton, with the producer who recorded everyone from Eric Clapton to Peter Green in the ’60s now working with the cream of the new blues generation.

On production, Mike Zito brings old-school blood-and-thunder to the mix, while his Royal Southern Brotherhood bandmates Yonrico Scott (drums) and Charlie Wooton (bass) provide the bedrock, bolstered by blues harp from Johnny Sansone, the B3 lines of Lewis Stephens and stunt-guitar cameos by Walter Trout and Aynsley Lister. “I first met Laurence in 2012, when his trio opened for Royal Southern Brotherhood on a few UK tour dates,” says Mike, who recently produced Samantha Fish’s breakout Black Wind Howlin’. “He’s a real artist. He had a great big voice and his guitar playing was really strong – but he was also playing original tunes, and that turned me on as well.”
