One of our current favourite artists around right now, CW Jones is a blues singer in the purest form, brutally spilling his heart over soulful tinged Hip Hop beats. His collaborations with Button Eyes and solo material he puts out via his Bone Dry imprint have been on the Edison playlist for some time now.
Hello sir, how are you?
I’m all very well thank you! Just back from a well needed break in Cornwall, really looking forward to cracking on with some music for the next couple of months.
What projects have you got lined up for this year?
I’m looking to move away from the trip-hop vibes and go back to working on my own music again. I’ve got my crowdfunded blues EP dropping in the next couple of months and a handful of hip hop collabs still to come!
YOUR BRUTALLY HONEST ABOUT PAST ISSUES IN YOUR LIFE ON SOCIAL MEDIA, I THINK ITS good TO SEE THAT KIND OF HONESTY when there is so much bragging and showing off online.
Thanks, it’s something I need to do for myself. I see a lot of people glamourising drugs and negative attitudes and it’s something I want to counter with blunt honesty. Even if it makes myself cringe at times! I delete a lot of stuff too ahah.
What's on your playlist right now?
To be honest I stopped listening to music around five years ago, right now I only really listen to Ray Charles & Peter Greens Fleetwood Mac and even then thats very occasionally. I play my friends tunes when they drop but they never usually get more than one spin.
Fair does,MENTIONING FRIENDS there it must be such an INSPIRATION seeing rag 'n' bone man's METeoric success, it just SHOWS WHAT CAN BE ACHIEVED?
Yeah absolutely, I’ve been fortunate enough to see a couple of people blow up from tiny little club scenarios and it’s amazing! With someone like Rags it was inevitable. When you have a world class voice like that, the only thing left is the backing to push it, I’m over the moon for him!
