Known as the Appalachian Soul Man, West Virginia native, Aristotle Jones has become a fan favorite in West Virginia, Central Appalachia and beyond.
With engagement, connection, and passion, Aristotle Jones leaves it all on the stage with uplifting music influenced by artists like Bill Withers, Leon Bridges, Ray Charles, Darius Rucker, and other Genre blending musical pioneers.
When he is performing as a one man acoustic singer songwriter, Aristotle blends original material with popular cover songs and delivers a heartfelt folk and gospel inspired repertoire that includes many entertaining anecdotes about life growing up in rural Appalachia, and spending time on his Granddad's (Robert Jones) Farm
On stage with his 9 piece "Amazing Appalachian Soul Band", Jones captivates audiences with his range, emotion, authenticity and originality. With his full band Aristotle expands the arrangement to include a stellar horn section, a solid rhythm section, and feature soloists. The music is modern but the feeling of Aristotle's full band shows transport the audience with the nostalgic energy of Juke Joints found throughout rural Appalachia.
