The expression “speaking in tongues” has always intrigued me since it tends to do with the occult, but now we get to associate the phrase with this fine song from Joseph J. Jones, too! The English singer songwriter, who used to be a boxer, enthralls us with his gravelly voice on the bluesy and soulful alt track, again reminding us of fellow crooners like Rag’N’Bone Man, Hozier, Alex Clare, and the likes. The epic anthem comes with a vividly crafted music video directed by Gregg Houstin and Babysweet. Speaking in Tongues is available, here.

Joseph J. Jones is an emerging English singer songwriter with a spectacular voice. He’s also a former boxer, so you might not want to pick a fight with this guy. The Essex resident made a big splash this summer when he released his emotive single Gospel Truth, which amassed over 500K Spotify streams and grabbed hold of bigwigs’ ears at BBC 1Xtra and Radio 1. He now blesses us with his full bodied crooning on new single Crawl, a bluesy alt rock and soulful alt pop number that immediately evokes Rag’N’Bone Man and Hozier. The earthy stomping, emphatic sweeping anthem is an awe-inspiring tour de force listen brimming with fervent passion. He’s sure to be one to watch in 2018. Check out Gospel Truth and Joseph J.

Joseph J. Jones had me riveted from the get go with tender piano and a stupendous voice on Face The Night. It’s only the British crooner’s second offering, speaking volumes of the artist’s potential. The moving song is a magnificent and pensive pop ballad from an artist who comes form, surprisingly, a family of boxers. Joseph’s stirring, melancholic music is like a beautiful, earnest blend of Hozier, Sam Smith, and Bastille.
