Listen: Joseph J. Jones - 'Crawl' (Single)

Born and raised in Hornchurch, Essex, singer songwriter Joseph J. Jones' new single, ‘Crawl’ is out now via Communion Records.

Falling somewhere between Hozier and Rag'n'Bone man, Joseph J. Jones is making huge soulful, bluesy pop songs - the kind that have captivated mainstream audiences over the past few years with their raw grit and powerful vocal performances.

This year, Joseph J. Jones has released two songs, each track lyric-led, featuring powerful yet minimalist arrangements, allowing Joseph's deep and resonant vocal to become the central point of each song. Where 'Gospel Truth' broods with a slow burning intensity, new song 'Crawl' is much more immediate in its potency.

Stomping percussive rhythms, restrained keys and grave guitar work sets a hypnotic and foreboding backdrop for Joseph's vocal to rise from, seeing 'Crawl' draw its listener into a fiery and energetic world of forbidden and dangerous love.
