We’re delighted to be working with Coruja Jones again!

Join Coruja Jones and his full band this November to celebrate the launch of his second record, Undo. Following on from his debut The Crossing, the EP delves into the healing process in different forms, examining the calm and the chaos that can come from attempted self-betterment, and witnessing and wanting to heal other’s hardship, all through a lens of love.

Produced by Sam Vicary (The Cinematic Orchestra, Hunrosa), the EP features Adam Dawson (BC Camplight), Sam Vicary and Jake Stentiford (Alina Ly, Sobi, Charlie Cooper).

Its dreamy, melancholic indie-folk songs feature soaring high notes and intricate, delicate guitar work, plus killer grooves, which take aim at your heart.

Coruja Jones is a songwriting project from Manchester-based musician and songwriter Dan Jones, originally hailing from Dudley in the West Midlands. He has been championed by the likes of BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson and toured with Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Joe Jackson, as well as supporting Daudi Matsiko, Callum Beattie, Amelia Coburn and Caoilfhionn Rose to name a few.

‘Deft and assured’ – Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music)

‘Like Tom Waits singing nursery rhymes’ -Wayne McDonald (Picnic Area)

Special guests are Alina Ly and Benjamin Finney.

Beginning her career in Seattle, Washington’s music scene in 2011, Alina Ly’s music led her to Los Angeles, California in 2013 then soon after to the UK. While playing a countless number of shows around the world, writing and recording between her home cities, Alina released multiple successful singles over the years and sold out her debut headline shows across the UK. Since then, Alina has been immersed in various projects and co-writes, but most notably working on several EP’s and a debut album with her full band.

A rare blend of fingerstyle guitar, elements of folk and americana – think boundary-pushing blues heavyweight John Martyn with the ethereal ambiance of Sigur Ros. This is the unique sound of Benjamin Finney. Achieving technical virtuosity while retaining melodic integrity, Finney creates honest folk driven acoustic instrumentals. Each piece is composed with the intention of drawing the listener into the song, and encouraging them to stay and hang on every note.
