Durand Jones & The Indications

Welcome to the soundtrack to your next date night.

Durand Jones started singing in his small-town Louisiana church choir as a kid before heading off the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University with his alto saxophone in hand. Things changes, as they do, and Jones soon found himself belting out a rambunctious rendition of “Dock Of The Bay” to a basement full of drunken undergrads.

That band became The Indications.

The Indications took inspiration from some obscure 45s, wrote some songs that have the grit and soul of the late 60s and 70s, then recorded those on a 4-track cassette recorder in their basement. Total budget for the album: $452.11. Since the album dropped, they’ve been on the road constantly and are, undoubtedly, one of the next big things to hit the music scene. We can’t wait for you to hear them at LouFest—but until then, get a taste below.
