Press release:

Music legend Paul Ubana Jones takes us back to where it all began with a rendition of his self-titled debut album.

Winner of three New Zealand Music awards, Paul Ubana Jones boasts an impressive four-decade career and has shared the stage with Bob Dylan, Norah Jones, BB King and many more soulful icons.

Born in London to a Yorkshire mother and a Nigerian father, Paul was playing the guitar by the age of 11. After years of classical training, Paul later forged his own contemporary style, influenced by blues, rock, folk and jazz.

In the late eighties, he moved to New Zealand and produced the album that would change his life forever.
