Tour Information
Described as one man with one guitar sounding like a whole band, Paul Ubana Jones is one of the country's most soulful hidden treasures. With a voice that is as husky as it is evocative, with intoxicating rhythms leaving nobody untouched Paul is not one to miss.

Born in London to a Yorkshire mother and a Nigerian father, Paul Ubana Jones was playing guitar by the age of 11. This was the beginning of a three-decade career that would see him crossing continents, recording eight albums and receiving three New Zealand Music awards.

After graduating from music college, where he studied guitar, cello and composition, Paul began to forge his own contemporary style, influenced by blues, rock, folk and jazz, which he has developed over the years.

In the late eighties, Paul moved to New Zealand, where he still lives. He continues to perform regularly in New Zealand, Australia, and internationally. Over the years, Paul has shared the stage with various artists, including Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, Norah Jones, Bob Dylan, Tuck and Patti, Crowded House and many others.

His festival appearances include Dublin Blues Festival, Byron Bay Blues Festival, Vancouver Island Folk Festival, Blues at Bridgetown, and many others across Europe.

‘Trying to describe just how good Paul Ubana Jones is, is like trying to define why the Mona Lisa is the most famous painting in the world- words pale in comparison’ — Evening Post, Wellington
