About Albert Jones
Albert Jones writes songs with hooks, but also, depth. He harks back to classic songwriting by the likes of Stevie Nicks, John Martyn and Peter Green. His guitar style is timeless, focusing on dynamics and feel. Contemporary artists that are comparable… Ryan Adams, John Mayer, Joey Landreth and Zero 7.
Albert’s singles have been played on BBC Radio 2 by Dermot O’Leary, BBC Radio 1 by Gemma Bradley, BBC 6 Music by Tom Robinson, and the BBC Introducing network. His music has been streamed more than 150,000 times Worldwide.
Most recently he was picked to be part of the BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend and last year his song See You When You Get There was featured as part of BBC Introducing at Glastonbury.
In 2019 (pre pandemic. remember that?) Albert completed a hugely successful tour of Brazil, where he played the biggest blues festival in Latin America, The Mississippi Delta Blues Festival. Named the muse of the festival, he headlined the folk stage to a packed arena of eager fans.
This Autumn Albert is touring the UK and Europe to promote his latest material.
After a great year of new releases, including airplay on BBC Radio 2 (Dermot O’Leary show), BBC 6 Music (Tom Robinson, BBC Introducing Mixtape) and great reviews on Fresh On The Net. The debut album from Albert Jones will be released this Autumn.
About Joanna Cooke
Motown legend Martha Reeves put it perfectly, describing Joanna Cooke as “the baby girl singing the
blues”. Joanna’s voice has the soul and power of someone way beyond her years, and her self-penned
songs so raw and honest they leave a lasting impression on her audiences.
The West country born singer/songwriter grew up in a strict but passionately artistic family, where her
father’s collection of blues records by greats like Howling Wolf and Robert Johnson was the soundtrack to
her upbringing. A restless desire for music has spurred Joanna throughout her music journey. Money was
tight so Joanna taught herself the piano from a keyboard she found in a skip and wrote songs that brought
her school teachers to tears. Fast forward and it’s this self-sufficiency, drive and talent that now see
Joanna supporting and collaborating with big name artists and performing her own solo shows.
These successes range from festival main stage appearances, supporting major artists such as Paloma
Faith and Rag’n’Bone Man, to intimate solo gigs. She has also worked with quality artists such as Jo
Harman, Beth Rowley, Ben Ottewell (Gomez) and Wildwood Kin. The release of 3 EPs and a single to
date have drawn positive review, and widespread radio play whilst Joanna’s vocal and songwriting
collaborations with international dance music producers include No1 Club Chart hits in Australia & South
Africa. All the while Joanna has built a loyal audience who really engage not just with the stories in her
songs, but her as a person.
The turn of the year sees Joanna writing material and planning her next record release in 2021, whilst
collaborating with producers both at home and abroad.
