Uncategorized

Reliving the Prince hit – single out July 6th

Based in Newport, South Wales, Nina Jones is the latest vocal jewel from a country which boasts a stellar musical heritage. At just 17 years old, hers is a voice which already holds the maturity and depth of singers well beyond her years.

Her new single is a cover version of the iconic Prince track ‘Purple Rain’ – one of the songs that saw Prince become a household name in the 1980s.

The languid, artistic video is available online now, and you can see it below:

The decision to continue learning and working from what has gone before is a demonstration that, even as a teenager, Nina is still grafting hard to learn her craft from those who have gone before.

And, with coverage and national support from BBC Radio Wales, it’s an approach that is obviously working well.

PurplerainPrimage

Each step forward marks a new marker along her journey into the music industry, and one that Nina Jones is willing to work very hard at indeed. In addition to releasing her solo singles and working on her own material going forward, Nina is also studying for her A-Levels and playing regularly with a superb 9 piece function band. With a work ethic like this, it’s easy to see Nina Jones’ dedication to music taking her a long way.
