After a very busy 2015, it looks like 2016 is going to be even busier for ICMP vocal alumna Jones. None other than Spotify UK have chosen her as one of their Spotlight Artists for 2016. Along with 14 other up-and-coming artists, the music-streaming giant picked the singer-songwriter as one of their must-listen musicians for next year, using data from both their playlists and their Viral Chart.
With the release of her debut EP back in April, and her latest single ‘Hoops’, Jones has been making waves in the music industry, recording her own live session for Huw Stephens at the BBC’s Maida Vale studios, appearing on Later… with Jools Holland alongside music royalty such as Sir Tom Jones, and even gaining fans amongst other musicians such as MNEK and Sam Smith. Jones was also a guest on the alumni panel at our Careers Day, alongside other alumni such as Bloc Party drummer Lou Bartle.
Jones’ debut album ‘New Skin’ is set to be released in the spring.
