“Fuzzy’s voice is like something you heard in a dream, truly original.”
Corinne Bailey Rae
“It’s gorgeous, well, really beautiful”

Fuzzy Jones is an award-winning singer-songwriter, based in Leeds UK. She is a singer in the truest sense of the word, crafting powerful songs, lyrics and arrangements that hark back to the sound of the female vocalists from the sixties. These are delivered with a unique vocal identity – powerful, emotional and fragile. Her songs display narrative many can understand and relate to and no-one can fail to be moved by them. She conjures up vivid urban tales of the everyday and her lyrics draw you in around melamine tables, of kitsch faded orange cafes. One young person recently described her music as “a pillow my soul would like to hug.”
Fuzzy herself likes to describe her music as “a tea party with Joni Mitchell and David Bowie, where Burt Bacharach occasionally pops by for a coffee.” She has cited influence from 60s and 70s musicians, such as Bobbie Gentry, Grace Slick, Julie Driscoll, David Bowie, Serge Gainsbourg, The Beatles, Nancy Priddy, Jimmy Webb, Scott Walker and Dusty Springfield, and Jazz greats like Billie Holiday, all the way to the artists of now like Dawn Landes, St Vincent and Father John Misty.
Fuzzy’s music has been played on Stuart Maconie’s ‘Freak Zone’ BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Leeds & Lincolnshire, BBC Introducing, Chapel FM and other online shows.
Her greatest achievement to date is winning ‘Best Song’ at the prestigious London Screenwriters’ Festival in February 2014, when her song ‘Swans’ (co-written by Neil Innes) was featured in the end credits of the first crowdsourced feature film ’50 Kisses’.
She is often accompanied by the fabulous and handy acoustic guitar man, Jonny Flockton (Mik Artistik’s Ego Trip) and Handmade Fletch on bass guitar and backing vocals. She is currently recording her debut album at The Secret Cinema in Ilkley.”

“A crystal clear voice that was a joy to listen and had me smiling and tapping my foot within moments. There’s a paradoxical strength and yet fragility to her voice that is very alluring to the listener.” Darren S, Musical Views Blog (Review of The Wonder Inn gig 5th June ’15)
“This is very, very beautiful. You have an extraordinary voice”. Tess Tyler (London Screenwriters)
