Hotly tipped singer-songwriter Kelvin Jones, is the latest rising UK star. With the release of his debut album ‘Stop The Moment’ earlier this month, the boy from Stevenage has been enjoying his first taste of success, not only in the UK, but also across Europe.
His debut single ‘Call You Home’ has been lighting up the airwaves courtesy of BBC Radio 2’s B-list. It has also been receiving spins on Absolute Radio and championed by Sir Elton John on his Beats 1 show.
In addition to UK shows supporting the likes of James Morrison, X Ambassadors and Izzy Bizu, Kelvin has also been capturing the hearts of fans across Europe. Already headlining sold out shows and winning awards in Germany and Switzerland, his infectious music is starting to spread.
Kelvin’s rapidly growing appeal can be seen above, as he took part in Zurich’s ‘Tram Sessions’ where fans and competition winners got to see him perform stripped back sets on a moving tram around the city. Not satisfied with just seeing him play, they all queued up to meet their new favourite singer-songwriter, and get photos and autographs with him.
Kelvin will be hitting the road in May to play a collection of shows up and down the UK. On May 5th, he’ll be supporting the massively buzzy Rationale in London as part of a series of shows hosted by Notion Magazine.
After this, he’ll be joining YouTube sensation Hannah Trigwell for a run of 4 dates, visiting key cities in the UK – London, Manchester, Bristol and Glasgow.
With a new single coming next month, the ball is firmly rolling and looking to spark the catalyst that makes 2016 Kelvin Jones’s year.

“If you love James Bay & George Ezra, then Kelvin is the one you need to be adding to your playlist.” – Maximum Pop
“Kelvin Jones arrives almost fully formed. A confident, individual voice…the plucked acoustic guitar line is matched to those honeyed tones, each lyric tumbling forth in an emotional plea.” – Clash
