Simon Webster CEO of Thornbridge Brewery noted recently: “We were delighted when we were approached with the idea of having the music video for The Laurence Jones band shot on site in our barrel room. We’ve always been really keen to support the arts here at Thornbridge, from having gigs on at our pubs to commissioning local artists to produce our merchandise and hosting our own beer, food and music festival every year in August.
The video and it looks fantastic!”

When asked to comment on the single Laurence Jones stated “This song’s a nuclear explosion of feeling and emotion, letting go and saying I’m ready, I’m waiting for whatever’s coming my way. Have you ever heard that phrase that good things come to those who wait? ‘I’m Waiting’ is about being patient but also being ready.”
