{the}Paragon Theory {experiment}

I am a creative person, an artist. I enjoy spending time in my home recording studio, working with sound and effects attempting to make new sounds and experiment with different audio equipment to explore what can be created beyond the realms of the normal space and time of what is popular. I try to create something completely new and amazing. My music is experimental, it is not pop music and you will not find it on the top 40 radio station. If you are into that type of thing please support me. I am on various different platforms like  Spotify and Band Camp Please Contact me (enter the form below)  I would love to hear from you.  (please do not spam) Eric Jones your messages will be deleted. I wont even read them, please do not message me ever again,  or I will report you for harassment. 


My music is political, I am an artist, so it is second nature. I have been politically involved in my community since I was a teenager in Louisville, Kentucky.  I believe in freedom of speech, and I do realize that the 1st amendment is to protect GOVERNMENT from suppressing my right to free speech, and not an induvial. If you disagree with me or my politics, that is perfectly fine, that is your right to do so.  I am a tax paying American Citizen and I feel I have the right to speak up when I see something wrong. It is not that do not love my country when I point out the faults of our Government or its people, it means I love it more because I want it to succeed, and I do not want to see it crumble.  As Bob Dylan once said "we live in a political world". 

This is in response to the "shut up and sing" crowd. Although I am not as famous as say Bruce Springsteen or Michael  Stipe and I do feel that they have the same freedoms to speak out even though they are famous,  I am putting my heart and soul out there creating my music and art same way Bruce and Michael are. 

Please sign the guest book below, I would love to hear from you. I ask that you don't spam or try to sell me something.  


Play Music on the Porch Day August 27 2022



If you want to be an advocate for the homeless, start with fighting corporations and demand they pay a fair a livable wage to their employees. Fight for affordable healthcare. Fight for education on metal illness and end the sigma that it has. Demand funding for services that help people with mental illness. Fight for fair and affordable housing. Demand there is enough resources for people to get drug treatment and rehab. It starts with human relations and preventative action, not donations. Write to  your state representative.  




 "When I start the music process, it seems like the good stuff comes from "happy accidents". I just go into the studio with the intent that I want to create something, but I don't quite know what it is yet. I don't make music, I experiment with sound waves. I do it because I have fun. That is the main reason I do this in the first place. If someone is interested in my experimental music, that is a bonus"
