JONES brand new single ‘Camera Flash’ has confirmed her place as one of 2020’s breaking UK R&B talent. The original version contained soaring disco synths, pulsating electro-pop and sparkling flashbacks to the ‘90s R&B golden era, and now JONES strips it back with a stunning acoustic version. Listen HERE.
Featuring JONES accompanied only by a guitar, the new version highlights her beautiful soulful vocals and the song’s empowering lyrics. ‘Camera Flash’ is a strong statement from an artist who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to say so. It’s a topic that so many people will be able to relate to: wanting a relationship when everyone seems to be craving a casual connection.
JONES says, “Summery and breezy, this one always makes me smile!”
‘Camera Flash’ underlines why JONES also appeals to artists across the sonic spectrum. She’s previously toured with HONNE, regularly collaborates with Joe Hertz and even shared a table with Tom Jones when she performed on Later… with Jools Holland.
The reaction to JONES’ previous single ‘Giving It Up’ has included support from Radio 1 (Clara Amfo, Greg James andScott Mills), Radio 2 (Trevor Nelson and Jo Whiley), 1XTRA and Capital XTRA, alongside key playlists at Spotify, Appleand Deezer. Add wide-ranging media acclaim plus live Instagram performances for Fearne Cotton’s My Happy Place Festival and Wonderland, and it’s clear that everything is falling into place.
JONES’ current momentum comes from modest roots. She was raised by her mother in Aldgate to a soundtrack of Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder and Bob Marley. She first discovered her love of songwriting as a teenager, with a nearby community arts centre the focal point of her early creativity.
She honed her craft by playing open mic nights, which resulted in her initial discovery and the first chapter of her career that culminated with the accomplished ‘New Skin’ album. A little time away from the spotlight has dramatically refined her talents, and she can master whatever sound she’s drawn towards, from unorthodox R&B to intimate balladry and energising pop.
