Don't call him the 'future of blues'. Enough talk of the 'next big thing'. With second album 'Temptation', British bandleader Laurence Jones has turned his hot-tip potential into fully formed brilliance, and officially graduated from boy-wonder to main man. If you thought Laurence was good in the past, you won't be able to resist 'Temptation'. "This album represents what I'm doing right now," he explains, "and these songs come across like when I play live." 'Temptation' is Laurence's first album for Ruf Records, and the climax of a thrill-ride early career that has barely paused for breath. True, other artists might have more miles on the clock, but the twenty-something bandleader has made the years count, having already released a critically acclaimed debut in 2012's 'Thunder In The Sky' (5/5 from Get Ready To Rock magazine), opened for heavyweights including Walter Trout and Buddy Whittington and won comparisons with Robin Trower from BBC Radio 2. No wonder that label boss Thomas Ruf chased his signature: "All Ruf artists have something exceptional about them, and Laurence will soon be right up there."
