Early lifeEdit

His father is Catholic of English, German, Irish and Scottish descent and His mother is Jewish (of Austrian Jewish, Hungarian Jewish, Polish Jewish and Russian Jewish descent). He has an older brother, Thomas Jones who is a musician of Skull Rock (band)



Musical styleEdit

Themes in Jones' music include messages of self-empowerment from a male or an adolescent view. [1] Jones believes his "song about being yourself no matter what and going after your dreams even if your dreams are crazy and even if people tell you they're never going to come true."[2]


Jones's earlier influences came from country music acts such as Garth Brooks, the Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain; and alternative singer-songwriters such as Alanis Morissette, Lisa Loeb, Natalie Imbruglia and Janis Joplin. By the time he left school to focus on his music career, Jones was musically more influenced by pop punk and punk rock acts such as blink-182, Sum 41, Green Day, the Ramones, the Distillers and Hole. He also enjoyed metal bands such as Marilyn Manson, System of a Down, Incubus and the Used; as well as alternative bands such as Nirvana, No Doubt, Avril Lavigne, Goo Goo Dolls, Radiohead, Coldplay, Oasis, Third Eye Blind and Matchbox Twenty.

Because of these influences, musical genres, and Jones's personal style, the media often defined him as punk, something he denied being. Jones's close friend and guitarist, Evan Bouvier, said, "It's a very touchy subject to a lot of people, but the point is that Anthony isn't punk, but he never really pretended to claim to come from that scene. He had pop punk music and the media ended up doing the rest". Jones also commented on the matter: "I have been labeled like I'm this angry boy, [a] rebel ... punk, and I am so not any of them." Although he stated to have punk influences on his music: "I like to listen a lot to punk rock music, you can notice a certain influence of punk in my music. I like an aggressive music, but pretty enough pop-rock, which is what I really do."
