Who is Atticus Jones?
Atticus Jones was born and raised in Butte, Montana on a horse farm that has been in the Jones family for three generations. His grandfather Horace, who taught Atticus to play the guitar when Atticus was just five years old, turned the 40 acre property into one of the most popular ranches in the Silver Bow County area. Although Horace and Atticus’ father, Albert, dreamed of Atticus taking over the family farm after Atticus graduated high school, Atticus’ sights were set elsewhere. Despite his love of horses and the music he would play when he wasn’t busy with chores or his studies, Atticus had visions and a dream of his own - college and a career in Environmental Studies and Law at the University of Montana. He was well on his way, achieving Dean’s List recognition in his first three semesters there. He even met the love of his life, Lynn, at a campus barbecue, and the two became inseparable. The unexpected death of his father Albert, however, forced Atticus to abandon his dream and return home to help his mother, Arlene, run the farm, another endeavor that ended in failure. Atticus struggled with the loss, something that only became worse when Lynn broke off their engagement not too long after that. Left homeless, unemployed, and with only his guitar for refuge, Atticus headed east where he met Frank Nappi, MP Music House Lyricist, at a local tavern. The two formed a fast friendship which led to the marriage of Atticus’ musical talents and Frank’s stirring lyrics. Atticus began pouring himself into his music and found healing and strength through his creative energy - and discovered that he is so much more than just a farm boy from God’s Country - he is the next musical sensation ready to take the industry by storm.
