AN INTRODUCTION To Gorgeous Jailbird BABYBIRD

5 March 2021

Artist: STEPHEN JONES aka BABYBIRD (Sheffield)
Who: A 24/7 music thinking/breathing/dreaming/making
maverick with a striking voice and a sharp, poetic pen. So
much more than that one (awesome) monster hit.

Over 100 releases in the last 4 years!!

Jones explains: “Music is a jail and I can’t get out of it.”

Album: AN INTRODUCTION TO
Released: 2 March 2021

Turn Up The Volume: Want a waterfall of high-quality songwriting with
a wayward edge, an ugly/beautiful mind, and a there must be something
else
quest? Then buy this album, dim the lights and listen, play it once
more and then again, get familiar with it. You’ll cherish this introduction
in the end.

On second thoughts: just buy his whole Full Digital Discography
(78 records for only £49.31 GBP) here. Take a vacation for about
three months (without telling anybody), somewhere in a cozy cabin
in the mountains, and press play.

Goodbye world, hello Babybird

BABYBIRD – Watch This Awesome Live Performance Of ‘YOU’RE GORGEOUS’ – Norwegian TV in 1996

Memorable live moments…

It always feels great when you discover something special you never have seen
before when surfing on YouTube. Like this magical version of YOU’RE GORGEOUS,
the greatest hit BABYBIRD ever scored, on Norwegian TV back in 1996. A gripping performance that sends shivers down your spine and reminds you instantly of how spellbinding and affecting Stephen Jones‘ voice is. Bewitching, touching and impressive. One of the most underrated artists ever.

Here’s why…

While you’re here check out Jones‘ latest album
I WAS BORN AGAIN released in 2019. His ninth
lo-fi album since the nineties. A wonderful and
intimate record. Music for the midnight hours.

BABYBIRD Drops Darksome ‘NO CAMERAS’ Reflection From Upcoming LP…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

13 June 2019

Those who only know Stephen Jones aka BABYBIRD from his massive 1996 hit single
Your Gorgeous‘ (from the magnificent, gloomy Ugly Beautiful album) think that he
was just a one hit wonder. For those, like me, who kept track with this quite unique singer/songwriter/musician (check his splendid There’s Something Going On LP if you never heard it) we saw an artist who never stopped following his enigmatic and troubled muse. Check his Bandcamp page here and his Spotify here and you’ll wonder if  the man actually ever slept.

And now BABYBIRD is back from being never been away but this time with something really special. His first vinyl album in 21 years, entitled PHOTOSYNTHESIS will be out on 19th July. And here’s the newest single. NO CAMERAS feels like a bluesy torch song, like
a critical take on this modern times ‘Me, myself and I‘ photo epidemic. But you are never quite sure about Jones‘ ambiguous and/or inscrutable chain of thoughts. Anyway this stirring contemplation causes chills down your back. Absorb the mood right here…

BABYBIRD Released His Puzzling Album ‘THERE’S SOMETHING GOING ON’ 20 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

22 Augustus 2018

ARTIST: BABYBIRD (Sheffield, England)

ALBUM: THERE’S SOMETHING GOING ON – Stephen Jones‘ moniker’s (official) 2nd LP

RELEASED: 24 August 1998 – 20 years ago

ALL MUSIC review: “‘There’s Something Going On’ is the tender conclusion, suggesting that Jones knows there’s a better way of life than obsession and self-torture. ‘There’s Something Going On’ is definitely Baby Bird’s most subtle album, and it’s a fascinating listen from start
to finish.

NME wrote: “An album that – at the risk of sounding like the kind of armchair psychologist
who thinks Ally McBeal contains Freud-like wisdom – deals with what it means to be a man in the late-20th century… Self-pity, self-loathing and staggering narcissism – no matter how you look in a skirt, it’s a universally thrilling combination. Buy this record for the one you adore.
You know you’ll love it.”

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: Babybird was/is an underrated modern times crooner
with a profound vision on being human wrapped in highly infectious melodies/songs.
Favorite tracks: It’s Not Funny Anymore / If You’ll Be Mine / Back Together / First Man On The Sun / The Life / All Men Are Evil
