Emerging Artist: Jones
Another soulful singer from across the pond has hit the music scene. Cherie Jones, an East London native, caught my attention as I was scrolling through Hearst digital project Sweet on SnapChat's Discover page.
Jones performed her original song, Hoops, on Huw Stephens Presents — Sweet Sessions. Hoops was produced by XO and Josh Record. Yes, Record is his real last name, which is perfect for a producer.
Jones' performance was accompanied by an electric guitar, which I personally prefer over her completed track on SoundCloud.
During the sit down session with Huw Stephens, Jones said Hoops is about one person putting more into a relationship than the other. The lyrics sounds like we've all experienced this at one point and time in our lives ... right? "I got to jump through hoops to get to get to you."
Jones natural beauty shines gives her genuine raw talent a boost. Her voice, like her personality, is soft and soulful. Her personal style has a hint of the 1980s and early 1990s with her hi-waisted, loose fitting mom jeans, tank top and half messy bun.
I'm definitely looking forward to hearing and seeing more from this young British artist.
