We introduce Calum Mackenzie Jones and ask him a few question ahead of a busy year of gigging.
Who are you ?
Calum Mackenzie Jones
What do you do ?
All my music is folk based but I love all genres and no two songs are the same – there’s a little bit of everything in my set- indie / blues / country / pop / traditional & Celtic rock
Vic Galloway probably summed it up best last year as Indie-Folk-Rock with mature and powerful vocals.
For fans of…. ?
James Bay, Bon Iver, George Ezra, Shawn Mendez and Hozier

Really just want to get my music heard by more people and play as many festivals and events as possible. Been putting together my second mixed genre album which is due for release in the summer.
Excited to introduce the new band this year – Shannon Marley on Bass Guitar & Angus Montgomery on Drums – taking the live performance to the next level.
