Originally from Stockton-On-Tees, Jones moved to London in the early aughts to pursue a career in music, taking her stage name from a piece of art she purchased from a local artist in Bermondsey. She quickly found her own sense of joy in the area, as well as an affinity to the largely working-class area, the docks, and the history steeped within. She applied that sense of exultation to her side-projects, developing a talent for crafting upbeat tracks that inspired a kind of hedonistic catharsis while working with electronic producers and touring with Groove Armada. Her solo projects were largely an expression of Jones’ introspective and melancholic side: following two EPs, she released her critically acclaimed debut album Union in the summer of 2012, before collaborating with fellow Northerner Bill Ryder-Jones for 2014’s In the Seams, who also appeared on 2020’s Tomorrow Again, which drew flattering comparisons to Kate Bush and Elizabeth Fraser.
