Fifteen years after taking a short break, Sunderland-based folk singer Bill Jones is back on the UK and USA folk scene. Bill’s new album Wonderful Fairytale was released on 1st June 2019 on CD and all digital and streaming formats.
“This is an assured, perfectly sequenced, beautifully arranged and performed set of songs that speak to the listener. The playing and singing have a gravitas and consumate power, this is a performer who has come back as a major talent. If I did stars this would be getting all of them. Life itself is the most wonderful fairytale says Hans Christian Andersen, she’s doing it for herself says Bill Jones.”
