KELVIN JONES – SINGLE REVIEW

Kelvin Jones – Closer (Sony) 
Kelvin Jones - Closer


Release Date: Out Now

Stevenage. Home of the roundabout. And Kelvin Jones. The latest addition to the mighty Sony label is the talented 20-year-old soul singer and what an addition he is!? ‘Closer’ is the new single from this fresh talent and its acoustic plus piano driven melody is instantly infectious. There’s soul, pop and a smidge of Motown as Jones works through the genres along with ages in his charming video. If you’re looking for comparisons then you’re talking James Bay but with more personality and fun, Paolo Nutini with more soul or Aloe Blacc but with a more English vibe. Sure, this is pretty mainstream stuff but Sony aren’t going to go signing anyone right on the edge of things are they? That doesn’t stop this being a cracking tune though and it certainly doesn’t stop Kelvin Jones being a very hot prospect with a great voice.
