"Eyes And Ears Review"


Acoustic Magazine review!
Hey everybody have a look at this. My EP has been reviewed in this months edition of Acoustic Magazine, have a read below!

South Wales born singer/songwriter Ffred Jones' debut EP is an impressive introduction; simple, understated but beguiling. Jack Johnson is an influence and there's a nod of Coldplay on the excellent "Silhouettes and Snowfall", but Jones has very much his own sound. Intricate guitar picking decorates Jones' languid voice, and the occasional other instruments, notably glockenspiel on one track, add depth. The simplicity of the arrangements only serves to highlight the quality of the songwriting, with never a jarring moment in the lyrics. The greatest compliment, however, is that the second time I played this EP the songs felt immediately familiar - high praise indeed.
