Gabriella Jones

Now you may have come across Gabriella Jones recently in the media, as her music has caught the attention of some pretty famous singers, shall we say. Gabriella is not the usual teenager, who is up all night trying to score tickets to see Beyoncé live, she does the next best thing; she supports Beyoncé on her Mrs. Carter world tour.

Gabriella Jones is an eighteen-year-old Blues/Pop/Rock Brummy singer songwriter. Currently studying an English and Philosophy degree at Birmingham University, Gabriella somehow manages to juggle recording amazing tunes, and being on a world tour, with my musical heroine Beyoncé. Gabriella unsurprisingly has caught the attention of musical legends because of her unique style and tone. Gabriella has worked with some of the ‘greats’, such as the guitar genius John McLaughlin, to create some amazing music. Her voice has a husky Rock and Blues feel, with a sound similar to Paramore’s Hayley Williams and Joan Jett. You can hear Gabriella’s musical influences of Led Zeppelin, Paul Rodgers, and Etta James in her voice, taking these influences to create a new sound. As the song ‘Blue Hills and Purple Butterflies’ exemplifies, Gabriella’s lyrics are powerful poetry.

This lady has already kicked off her career in a way that will make anyone feel inadequate. Gabriella has not only played at festivals such as Hard Rock Calling in Hyde Park, the Isle of Wight Festival and the Wireless Festival, she has supported the likes of Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, The Killers, Slash, and has opened for the legend that is Jay-Z. Gabriella is clearly an extremely musically talented young lady and I’m sure we will be hearing more from her in the days to come.

About Melanie Moran

I am a Comparative Literature and Film Studies student at Queen Mary, University of London. What I enjoy about my degree is pushing myself to work hard and immersing myself in writing, literature and exploring the rich cinematic world. Some of my favourite novels include, To Kill a Mocking Bird and The Great Gatsby. Cinematically, I love the works of Wes Anderson, Krzysztof Kieślowski and Ingmar Bergman (with Wild Strawberries being one of my favourite films). I am originally from Melbourne, Australia. I moved to Cambridge when I was twelve years old, and London when I was eighteen. I love living in one of the world’s greatest cities, and utilising all London has to offer. I can explore and enrich my passion for the theatre, cinema, literature, art, photography, architecture, fashion and music in London. London is the cultural capital, which has allowed creative individuals like myself to be inspired and thrive. I am extremely excited to showcase the vast and extensive talent the Swinging City has to offer. I know there are amazing unsigned talented individuals from seeing these gifted individuals with my own two eyes, and also from working with the Roundhouse Rising Festival. I worked alongside the Roundhouse in Camden, to showcase an amazing line-up of emerging music. I saw just how many brilliantly creative and talented people there are in London and across Britain. Alongside with ‘Born in Britain’, I want to help unearth some amazing talent London has to offer.
