MEILYR JONES shares “Be Soft” video + SXSW and UK tour dates

February 10, 2017


Premieres “Be Soft” Video

Announces SXSW and UK Tour Dates

Debut album, 2013 out now via Moshi Moshi

“One of the most original and refreshing things we’ve heard this year.” – Hype Machine

“Baroque, pastoral style with a flair for drama.” – Brooklyn Vegan

“Shifting from Dexys-style indie-soul to heart-rending balladry to shiny pop.” –The Guardian

“There are traces of Welsh peers Cate Le Bon and Euros Childs, but Jones has a broader palette: 30-piece orchestra, accordion, choir, field recordings et al… This is Meilyr’s time.” –MOJO – 4 Stars ****

It’s been an amazing year for MEILYR JONES. Following rave reviews for his solo debut album 2013, released last March via Moshi Moshi, he’s toured the land rapidly building a devoted fan base, winning the 2016 Welsh Music Prize and culminating in a recent performance at London’s Tate Museum.  Now, he has exclusively shared his new video for “Be Soft”. The video was shot by Ryan Eddleston, it is the last song on the record and was filmed on Gianicolo hill in Rome.
