Like Big Jack Johnson, Sam Carr and his other labelmates at Fat Possum/Capricorn, guitarist, singer and songwriter Paul "Wine" Jones grew up with blues all around him. He learned to play guitar at his father's feet at age four, taking his earliest inspiration from his father's playing. Jones' brother, Casey, is the in-demand Chicago blues drummer who's backed Albert Collins, Koko Taylor and dozens of others. Jones played music as an avocation for many years, working farming jobs until 1971, when he became a professional welder in Belzoni, Mississippi. He's been based in Belzoni ever since.
