Guitarist Laurence Jones is playing with his band at Komedia, Brighton, on Wednesday, September 16 (7.30pm).

Laurence was voted Young Artist of the Year in the British Blues Awards 2014 and, in the same year, he won the first UK Blues Challenge, which lead to him represent the UK at the fifth European Blues Challenge in Brussels.

Spokesman John Smith said: “At only 23, Laurence has clocked up some serious road miles touring throughout the UK and Europe.

“In 2013 Walter Trout invited Laurence and his band to play as support on their UK tour.

“In April, Laurence released his third album, What’s it Gonna Be, with Ruf Records, featuring guests Sandi Thom and Dana Fuchs.”

John added: “Voted Best New UK Act by Blues Matters Magazine in September 2014, Red Butler will be stepping on stage earlier in the evening.”

Tickets are £11 from 0845 293 8480.
