in the nineties, from a tiny village in deepest darkest
Wiltshire, UK, there came forth a band with fire in its belly
and blues in its heart, and that band was called The Hoax.
One of its four key members was Jon Amor, a long, lean guitar player
who, along with his cohorts, toured the UK, Europe and the USA for eight
years until the group disbanded in 1999, with four successful albums and
a string of awards to its name. Since then, Jon has taken on the role of
frontman with his band AMOR and established
himself as a singer and songwriter in his own right, releasing two
highly acclaimed and influential albums and giving the British blues
rock scene a much-needed kick up the backside. Jon disbanded AMOR in
2005 and made the final leap into solo performance with a string of
unique acoustic gigs. He also recorded a brand new album
Unknown Soldier which is set for release on May 2nd and features guest
performances from Led Zep legend Robert Plant and renowned
tub-thumper Clive Deamer of Portishead and Roni Size fame.
