Beginning as a collaboration between established solo artists Paddy Milner (keyboards, vocals) and Marcus Bonfanti (guitar, vocals), the band was soon joined by the renowned rhythm section of Rex Horan (bass, vocals) and Evan Jenkins (drums, percussion), Jawbone has quickly become a band with a unique sound focused on delivering strong songs.
Each member of Jawbone is a respected musician in the industry. They have played with everyone from Tom Jones, Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, Ten Years After, Van Morrison, Robert Plant, David Gilmour, Cliff Richard, Ronnie Wood, James Hunter, Phil Manzanera, and many more.
In January 2018, Jawbone were chosen to back Eric Clapton, Van Morrison & Tom Jones at Paul Jones’ legendary charity show at G-Live in Guildford, gaining rave reviews from the artists involved and the sell-out audience alike.
The distinctive voices of Paddy Milner and Marcus Bonfanti compliment and contrast throughout the songs as they share lead vocal duties on the album. Rex Horan’s searing falsetto vocals create the three-part harmony that has become a hallmark of the Jawbone sound.
Named after a song taken from The Band’s self-titled 1969 second album, and taking influences from Little Feat, The Band, The Rolling Stones and Crosby, Stills Nash & Young but also mixing it with the eclectic musical backgrounds that each member brings, allows Jawbone to create a very fresh take on rock’n’roll.
