"Wow! This is a woman with a strong, velvet smooth voice, who is bound to be a star." - Casco Bay Weekly

""this melodie""

"Could It Be," is an instant hit single, with its catchy soul-lite chorus and angelic, uplifting vocals.... Whether she's playing the world-wise woman, innocent little girl, or political rabble rouser, Jones has a great ear for style and melody that makes this particular Melodie most memorable." - The Portland Phoenix

"Warwick SInger Debuts CD"

"Sweet as the Sun" is a soft, melodic journey through the life of a woman who is finding destinations. "How I Need You Now" is a fine opener, a charming structured pop song lifted by Jones' breezy vocals.
