Nina Jones Gives Us More Than Just ‘Promises’ with New Track

Nina Jones 4

We introduced you to Nina Jones in April last year, with her song, ‘Never Let You Go’. Now Nina is back, with ‘Promises’. The fourth single release from the 18 year old vocalist from Newport, South Wales, it’s an infectious pop song with an R&B feel. 

Nina Jones started singing seriously at the age of 10, receiving singing lessons from Louise Ryan, Charlotte Church’s singing teacher. She quickly developed to the stage where she was chosen to star in ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ at The Wales Milennium Centre, in Cardiff, alongside Aled Jones and ‘H’ (Steps).

Nina reached the final of the UK Open Mic contest a few years back, and was runner up in ‘The Star of Stage’ contest in 2013.

Her debut release, ‘Never Let You Go’, written by Darren Parry and Laura Curtis, received wide radio play, including BBC Radio Wales. Nina followed this up with a cover of Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ which to date has racked up 62,000 views on Youtube, and had radio airplay around the UK.

‘Promises’, also written by Darren Parry, is a song about losing trust in someone you previously loved; tiring of their lies and deceit. It is however also about being strong and moving on. It’s accompanied by a lovely video, featuring Nina, and illustrating the story of the song.

‘Promises’ certainly sounds like it lives up to its name, and is set to take Nina Jones even higher.

You can find Nina online on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Soundcloud, Youtube, and her website.
