Raw gritty emotions reign supreme on this debut album as Joseph J. Jones explores themes of heartache, urban entrapment, revenge, loss and hope.

This record is a true display of accomplished dedication on the gig circuit of London, and you can hear how Joseph has been inspired not only by his own life experiences, but how his audiences have reacted to his sound over the last 12 months of recording.

Joseph has already found his sound, which is something that should be celebrated with a debut release, and it’s not surprising either as Joseph has lived quite a diverse life. Joseph spent his younger years as an amateur boxer in his native Hornchurch, and made the switch from fighting to signing. He was spotted by Communion Records and quickly started turning heads with the current wave of UK alternative soul music.

From the bittersweet tale of ‘Tears & Tequila’ (which is one of our faves off the album) to the elegance and emotion of ‘All Or Nothing’ (our standout track on the record for sure!) this record has something for everyone, and not surprisingly its been featured on TV shows such as TOWIE, Love Island, Sky Football and Masters Golf – and it’s the records diversity of sound, alongside Josephs take on modern society, that makes him standout from the norm.
