New Liverpudlian kid on the block MT Jones gathers inspiration ranging from 60s and 70s soul greats to modern R&B and jazz, evoking a sound that is both contemporary and timeless. His deeply soulful vocals transport you straight back to a smoke-filled speakeasy whilst still bringing a sound that feels fresh and innovative.
New single “Wasting My Time” is a delightful and catchy slice of feel-good soul, capturing the spirit of summer and the carefree nature of letting things go and enjoying the moment. MT says about this song – “It’s a great feeling to enjoy the present, Everyone needs some time to forget their worries and clear their head from time to time. This song is about the joy of that feeling, be it a person who helps you get there, a cup of something, or the sky outside. It’s pure admiration for the simple things”. And enjoying the moment is certainly what this talented new artist should be doing right now, with things moving so fast for MT Jones, this is clearly only the start for this highly memorable and distinctive singer, songwriter, musician and creator.
Between stints working on music regularly in the UK, Jones has travelled the world as a musician and penned songs for other artists, making a name for himself as a gifted and prolific songwriter. His first couple of releases put him on the map as a solo artist, receiving immediate and strong support from BBC introducing with multiple spins across the network and a feature as a ‘Step up’ artist on 1Xtra. With BBC Merseyside also taking MT Jones firmly under their wings, he performed at various festivals this summer including Cambridge Folk Festival & Secret Garden Party before showcasing under ‘Communion Live’s’ promotional banner at a sold-out show in London as well.
All of MT Jones‘ releases to date have been supported heavily by DSPs including several New Music Friday adds on Spotify UK. Collaboration/writing sessions with some of the UKs finest hit makers such as Eg white (Adelle), Jonathan Quarmby (Lewis Capaldi) & Paul O Duffy (Amy Winehouse) see MT Jones currently building a catalogue of extremely strong material promising an exciting and bright future ahead.
