MT Jones releases second single ‘Tough Love’ from his upcoming EP

“Tough Love” is the second offering from MT Jones’ debut self titled EP which features 3 other tracks showcasing his world class songwriting ability and distinctive vocal prowess in a refreshing and highly memorable package.

MT Jones gathers inspiration from 60s and 70s soul greats, modern R&B and jazz, evoking a sound that is both contemporary and timeless. His deeply soulful & distinctive vocals transport you straight back to a smoke-filled speak easy, whilst bringing a sound that feels fresh and innovative.

“Tough Love” was written alongside long-time collaborator Callum Cowie and is a heartfelt exploration of the realisation that someone doesn’t feel the same way about you as you do about them. The single follows Jones’ March “All I Do”, a longing apology recounting the feelings of regret which arise when a love is lost.

Tough Love is about a door closing on you, when you weren’t expecting it to, and the turmoil which comes with that” states MT Jones

Jones began busking in Liverpool at the age of 12 and since then has travelled the world as a musician, most recently as support for Jalen Ngonda on his European tour. While penning songs for other artists, Jones has made a name for himself as a gifted songwriter and his debut releases, “I Won’t Ever Say Goodbye” & “Feeling Lonely solidified him as one of UK’s most exciting emerging artists. His music has gained support from Craig Charles on BBC 6 Music, Trevor Nelson on BBC Radio 2 and across Jazz FM. Jones has also received strong support from BBC introducing, with multiple spins across the network, and a feature as a ‘Step up’ artist on 1Xtra.
