Jones Jnr Announce Debut EP East Coast Tour

Sydney’s old school soul and R&B connoisseurs Jones Jnr have announced the release of their debut EP Step on Sleep and after an adventurous year touring with the likes of Jill Scott, Kelis, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Charles Bradley and Cody ChesnuTT and a headline tour in Japan, JONES Jnr is set to embark on their first headline tour of Australia in July, including performances at the Bello Winter Music Festival.

The project of vocalist Ev Jones and Thundamentals founding member/producer Morgan Jones, JONES Jnr traverse a unique blend of old school-soul mixed with contemporary beats.  Produced entirely by Morgan Evans, Step in Sleep was written in London, New York and LA and recorded at the Thundamentals studio in Sydney and BounceCounty in Melbourne with Pip Norman AKA Countbounce.  “We have a lot to share with the world when it comes to the JONES Jnr sound.  It’s still growing and developing, it’s still soul, it’s still got swingbeats, but it will take listeners to some surprising places. There are some very personal songs on this EP, these aren’t stories, this is our life on record,” Ev explains.

“We are really proud of this EP as an opening act in our story, its bold, bright, dusty as hell and makes you wanna move your feet. We make music as much for ourselves as for the enjoyment of others, this is only the beginning folks,” adds Ev.
