Graham was a record sales representative for 25 years at music distributor, Proper Music. It was during this time Jones counted 2,200 independent record shops across the UK, a number which fell to 269 by 2009. This inspired Jones to write his book 'Last Shop Standing' which would later be made into a film. As part of the research for this book, he toured the country and interviewed staff at 50 different record shops. His new book, 'The Vinyl Revival and the Shops that Made it Happen' has just been released.
