Zach Jones & the Tricky Bits are living proof of the continuing charm of power-pop. Centered around Jones's undeniable vocal talent and gleeful, witty songcraft, the band's catalogue has the tunefulness and longing of the early Beatles, The Byrds, Big Star, and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers.

The band’s forthcoming new single, "Lonesome & Blue,” reaches back even further in time, with a Buddy Holly-esque retro swagger and a vintage cheeriness that is contagious. It was co-written, co-produced, recorded, and mixed — in mono — by Paul Loren, a gifted artist in his own right and a fellow devotee of the rock ‘n’ roll records of yesterday. The song's buoyant and effortless groove is a happy byproduct of the kinship among Jones, Loren, and the Tricky Bits: Brian Killeen, Oscar Albis Rodriguez, and Hannah Winkler.

Since the release of their Trump takedown, "Great Again,” in 2016, Zach Jones & the Tricky Bits have released two EPs and two singles, while opening shows for like-minded bands such as Jukebox the Ghost. Jones’s precision and songwriting smarts come from over a decade of well-honed experience as a sideman (Sting, Elle King) and a producer (A Great Big World, Jenny Owen Youngs). “Lonesome & Blue” will be released this May.
