Soul-rockers Horojo Trio featuring JW-Jones ‘Set The Record’ with their debut album

Award-winning soul-rocking rhythm and blues group Horojo Trio is ready to Set The Record with the release of its debut album — available April 1 via Stony Plain Records.

The 11-track release includes the new single and video, “Hard As I Can,” and you can watch it below.

Horojo Trio is drummer Jamie Holmes, singer/keyboardist Jeff Rogers, and guitarist JW Jones, who has, as a solo artist, reached the Top 10 on the Billboard blues charts and received multiple Juno and Maple Blues Award nominations.

The result of a chance jam session that was so inspired it left both the audience and trio wanting more, the trio has since won ‘Best Band’ at the 2020 International Blues Challenge and performed at several top blues festivals and venues. It’s also earned a nomination for Music Group of the Year at the 2022 Ottawa Awards.

The Ottawa Citizen said Jeff’s voice “practically bowls you over with intensity as sweet, rich, and gooey as molasses in a heatwave,” while Nick Krewen (Globe & Mail, Billboard) called Juno nominee and IBC Best Guitar-winner JW Jones “a frequent resident of Billboard’s Top 10 blues charts and a roots radio favourite.”

Jamie has toured throughout North America and Europe, and recorded in Nashville with Grammy-winning producer Tom Hambridge.

Set The Record is available April 1 via Stony Plain Records.

“Stay Crazy” (Radio Edit) is available now on all digital platforms.
