Press Quotes:

"He’s a strong singer with a charming stage presence, and he handles Holly’s signature vocal 'hiccup' with aplomb." 
- John Crutchfield, Mountain Xpress

"Asheville's own Mark Jones is tall and lanky with Holly's geek-like look, and can emulate the early rock 'n' roller down to the voice." 
- Jim Cavener, Take 5, Asheville Citizen Times

"Mark Jones becomes the Buddy Holly of memory for those who grew up in the 1950s. He is spot-on as the prolific young singer/songwriter. The Asheville native isn't an imitator. He's a singer." 
- Mary Ann Enloe, The Guide
