A national treasure. Paul Ubana Jones is a conjurer of unique and original songs rooted in primal blues and soul.

An intimate soulful performer, an acoustic guitar sensation, winner of three New Zealand Music Awards Paul Ubana Jones was born in London to a Yorkshire mother and a Nigerian father. Paul was playing the guitar by the age of eleven. Four decades as a professional decades and nine albums later he continues to perform throughout New Zealand, Australia Europe and the USA.

“A national treasure; Paul Ubana Jones is so much more than one man with a guitar. He is a conjuror of unique and original songs, rooted in primal Blues and Soul.”

“The most exciting Electro Acoustic Artist to visit our shores.” - Good Morning News, Santa Monica

Opening act Paul Ubana Jones earned his own standing ovation with utterly distinctive guitar style.I can only describe it as part Ritchie Havens, part Andres Segovia and part Ravi Shankar. That’s right, he closed his set with a raging Indian raga that was as dazzling in technique as it was inventive in composition.
