You may recognize Saint Saviour from her collaborations with Andy Cato and Tom Findlay of Groove Armada on their GRAMMY nominated album "Black Light" (alongside Bryan Ferry, Nick Littlemore and Will Young). But the singer has a lot more on her sleeves as a solo artist.
Saint Saviour (aka Becky Jones) recently released her debut EP "Anatomy" to give us a taste of what she has been up to. The EP neatly demonstrates that Jones is a gifted songwriter and powerful, emotive vocalist who injects her performance with a soulful, soaring quality that is both haunting and mesmerizing.
One of the songs on her 5-track EP is "This Ain't no Hymn," which was remixed by London's hot and happening turntable man Kris Di Angelis who turns the original into a blazing little dancefloor number.
In an interview, Saint Saviour talks a little bit about how her passion for music. "I have been seriously into music since I was a kid, so I have really diverse tastes and an inquisitive drive to discover more ways of making music," she explains.
"When it comes to making my own album, I’ve gone from dark electro to Southern Soul music, Stax Records style, reggae to country folk. It’s a nightmare for A&R situations but I guess it means I can write for other people too and maybe one day, actually make a living. (Download "Anatomy" on iTunes UK or on her web site.)
