World Premiere: Nooky Jones wants her "Like Candy"

(September 11, 2019) What happens when you combine classic R&B with Yacht Rock? You get a fun young band like rising Minneapolis septet Nooky Jones. The group has gotten love from outlets ranging from Paste to NPR for their tasty brand of pop/soul, and they’re likely to get more with the September 27 release of the new EP, Like Candy. Nooky Jones will be celebrating the release of their EP on Saturday, September 28th at an exclusive event and performance in Paisley Park’s iconic Sound Stage in Chanhassen, MN sponsored by 89.3, The Current.

The band, consisting of Cameron Kinghorn (Vocals), Adam Meckler (Trumpet), Scott Agster (Trombone), Kevin Gastonguay (Keyboards), Andrew Foreman (Bass) and Reid Kennedy (Drums), makes an effort to bridge the classic music they love with their modern sensibilities, and it all works in a way that should attract multiple generations to their sound.

The title track from the upcoming CD features a bouncy piano opening before breaking into fuller, horn-filled sound and understated vocals. The infectious track sounds like Kenny Loggins meets Tower of Power meets Vulfpeck, and that’s a pretty good combination in our book.

We’re proud to present World Premiere of “Like Candy.” Check it out below and welcome Nooky Jones to SoulTracks!
