Through The Years
The 1990's were transition years. David played guitar in a few rock bands such as, Tantrum, and his own band, Bad Influence. The transition came when he joined The Powell Brothers Band and got back to the country music he grew up on. In 1994, he, along with steel guitar player, Milton Carroll, formed Eastern North Carolina's hottest country band, 8 Second Ride.
In 2003, David decided it was time for him to start following a dream. This is when SIXGUN was formed. For 11 years, SIXGUN was one of the most popular bands in eastern North Carolina. But there was still something missing.
DLJ is born
On January 21, 2014, off of a suggestion from long time friend, Karen Cayton, David Wilson Jones Jr became David Lee Jones to the music world. The idea was created the Saturday night before in downtown Nashville, TN. Fellow artist, Taryn Papa, planted the seed that night.
Today, David is an accomplished guitarist and vocalist who has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in country music, such as Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, George Jones, & Keith Urban, just to name a few.
