Hello! My name is Abi F Jones. I am a singer/Songwriter from leafy Surrey and I have my debut UK single Burn It Up being released on the 7th April! The kind of music that I make is based on whatever's on my mind! But when I ask people, they say it's a mix between Adele, Ellie Goulding and Kelly Clarkson - but mainly it’s me!
You may have heard me on 'BBC introducing' radio station, they have played my songs a few times on there. Most of my success so far has been in Norway as my album went down very well there and my single made it to number 14 in the Norwegian charts!
I think it's awesome too! I would describe it as a dark journey with rock and folk elements. I love to mix up my genres. I never want to produce boring music! I wrote it with my amazing producer 'Paul drew'. He da' bomb!
I feel like people are Getting a bit bored and too clever to be slaves to the disposable pop music that has been bombarding our billboards for the last few years. I am so happy to hear country and folk coming back in! (I'm a hugeeeee Dixie chicks fan)!
I have such a huge variety on there but I just turned it on and my man Tupac was playing. Obsessed is the word.
I have always been singing and inherited my talents from my opera singing mother 'Jayne Whitaker' who has just performed in the fantastic 'la Boheme' at the Royal Albert Hall. My father sings and plays the guitar and sax as well! I had no choice but to be musical! Hahaha! :)
Whilst I'm not in the studio writing and recording I am caring for Alzheimer's and dementia patients for a local care company 'Homeinstead'. It is a very humbling job and I love the feeling of giving back to my community. What goes around comes around.
The next step will to keep ploughing on! I plan to start touring (locally at first) with my amazing band and then revel further afield! But it comes down to this...As long as I am working hard, writing and making people smile I am successful.
In 3 years time I hope to be doing what I'm doing but on a much larger scale y'all!
