Joseph J. Jones signed to Communion Records in November 2015 at the age of 23, having been spotted at a Dalston pub show. He’d crafted a batch of universally relatable soul tunes with a sharp modernist twist, set to see him ranked alongside Sam Smith and Rag’n’Bone Man as a pivotal figure on the millennial soul scene.

His May 2017 single ‘Gospel Truth’ showcases Joseph’s melancholy electronic side, merging emotional piano balladry with rousing electro-gospel and couching his romantic desolation in religious terminology.

Themes of devastation, longing and loss run through Jones’s music, featuring heavily on the debut album recorded over two sessions at Church Studios in Crouch End, London and due for release early in 2018.

Following supports with the likes of Jack Savoretti, Jones embarks on his own headline tour this spring.

Taking musical influence from experiences of the ever changing world around them and young adulthood, Birmingham duo Hunger Moon combine ethereal vocals with electronic and organic instrumental textures to create their own atmospheric style of alternative pop . Having already gained the support of BBC Introducing West Midlands already, the duo are currently preparing for the release of their debut single ‘Oh Friend’ in spring 2018.

This is Cotter. Having spent large portions of youth in and out of various bands, this Birmingham born singer songwriter decided to step out alone. With years filled with love, loss, happiness, and dreams, the songs flowed naturally. Crafted with strong lyrics to make you think, make you speak, make you laugh, and make you cry, emotion is at the heart of it all. This is Cotter. Welcome to my mind.
