PLEASE REVIEW at               

One Soul Thrust – aka 1ST – is a pure rock band based in western Canada. The lead singer/ songwriter/force to be reckoned with is SALEM JONES. She has one of the best female voices in rock – period… so good that Deep Purple’s Glenn Hughes recorded a rare duet with her. She’s also a warrior in the purest sense of the word. Listen to the interview as I ask Salem about her real life as Empress of Rock.

Points of Discussion:

  • How & why Salem came to choose the rock genre for her life and her work. 
  • Working with the band and her partner Jag
  • She explains how ‘This band’s work is elemental. It comes from the bones; it goes back to the bones. With fire & pay-dirt…And the kind of endurance that only That Which is Real can ever have.’
  • She tells me about connecting and working with her renown producer Alessandro Del Veccio
  • We talk about doing her duet with Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple, and I play a clip of the song ‘Go Home and Melt’.
  • She tells me about Paul Rogers of Bad Company asking her to join him on stage.
  • We discuss the making of her 4th (new) album ‘Slaves to the Sky, Masters to the Mess’, which was released first on vinyl.
  • I ask her about what it means to be a life-long rocker, and a woman warrior living an excellent life.

Salem Jones’s voice combines the clarity of Ann Wilson and the sass of Alice Cooper, with the vocal range and power of any rocker you wish to name. She has honed her voice carefully with years of study under several teachers, including I’m very honored to say, me. Salem writes some of the most intelligent and creative lyrics I’ve ever come across. They come from a deeply intuitive, creative and passionate combination of mind/heart/spirit.
Salem has also mastered the art of stage performance, weaving a spell-casting triumvirate of musical, lyrical and visual threads together. Every move she makes is an intentional balance between control and holding nothing back.Her story is, like she is, unique. Salem made history being the 2nd female singer in the world to record a duet with Glenn Hughes on the song ‘Go Home & Melt. Veteran Italian producer Alessandro Del Vecchio, who has engineered and mastered hundreds of world-class Billboard chart-topping albums including collaborations from the most sought after rock groups in the world, has produced all One Soul Thrust CDs.
