Kelis Announces JONES Jnr. As Support

Award-winning artist Kelis has just confirmed JONES Jnr. as supports for her Splendor in the Grass sideshows.

The sultry singer sauntered into the charts as a sonically compelling 20-year-old whose infamous track ‘Milkshake’ became a global sensation.

But it’s not all boys in the yard, and Kelis has swapped out some sexy for soul on her new album Food, out now, which reveals her at her most frank and vulnerable.

Littered with a transcendent, Spector-esque lift, warm bottom ends and vast depth, the music is the perfect backdrop for Kelis’ unique voice. The latter has only improved with time and experience, and the album candidly explores pain, happiness and everything in between.

Joining her on her two date sideshows are Sydney duo JONES Jnr. Despite successful endeavours in some of the countries most exciting bands, the collaboration between Thundamentals’ DJ Morgs and Ev Jones of Rumpunch, have allowed them to find a new voice exploring their love of classic R&B and soul music. Evan’s daunting range perfectly complimenting Morgan’s breadth of beats, JONES Jnr. runs a gamut of Soul, from head nodding Memphis style to contemporary weirdos like Gnarls Barkely.

This is sure to be a show for lovers of music. Tickets on sale now
