Joshua Scott Jones Releases Debut Solo Single

Joshua Scott Jones

There was never an official statement but it looks like Steel Magnolia have certainly called it quits.  First Meghan Linsey announces she will debut her first solo EP later this year and now Joshua Scott Jones is releasing his very first single, “Honk (If You’re Tonky).

Joshua’s sing–available now on all digital retailers, including iTunes–sounds fresh and powerful and serves as an introduction to his forthcoming full-length album The Healing, due out later this year.

“‘Honk (If You’re Tonky)’ spoke very loudly to me right off the bat as an anthem for guys,” Joshua shares. “It speaks to the misunderstood side of men, that makes us rough around the edges while carrying the burden of a big heart and just wanting to live in harmony with yourself. What better than an ‘anthem’ for a first single?”

The singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist–who plays acoustic and electric guitar, piano and a little percussion on the album–also executively produced this very personal album. Three years since his last album release with Steel Magnolia, Joshua is looking forward to the next chapter of his career.

“It feels like a long time coming. It’s like moving into a new home or getting a new car; you have strong sentiment and deep attachment for the old car, but are eager to get behind the wheel of the new one.”

The Healing is a candid reflection of his life and the changes he’s experienced since first arriving on the scene.
Of The Healing, Joshua explains,

“I feel like at this point in my life as an artist, I can’t be anything but candid. The record certainly reflects my headspace over the last few years and tells the story of what I’ve gone through, especially the title track of the record, ‘The Healing.’”

“I always look forward to touring and at this point in my career connecting with a live audience and always trying to gain new fans is one of the things I look forward to most,” Joshua says. “The set list will definitely include the songs on my solo record, but there will be hints of Steel Magnolia. I feel a kind of responsibility to the audience to make song choices that flow from start to finish and that build the show so they leave feeling satisfied and wanting to experience it again. That’s my goal with every show.”

Steel Magnolia Ready For What’s Next

Steel Magnolia

Former Steel Magnolia, Meghan Linsey may be pursuing a solo career, but she’s not completely sure there won’t ever be new music with her former partner Joshua Scott Jones. The couple broke-up and the duo disbanded after they hit a rough patch when Josh entered rehab. According to Country Weekly, both members are ‘ok’ and looking forward to the next chapter.

We were together personally for a long time, almost six years, and we did break up. We basically took some time to ourselves, reconvened, decided we could tour together, decided to go ahead and book the dates, and then in the meantime, we started working on our solo projects.”

“I see it as a positive thing. I’m really grateful for the experience and to have had the success that we had, but he was doing a solo thing before, too. And I think we both had that in the back of our minds that we would do solo projects.”

In the mean time, Meghan is keeping her voice fresh and her schedule busy. She recently lent her voice to “The Voice” contestant Cody Belew in his song “Baby Get Out.”
