Print Music Editor Bridie Adams interviews Ruby Jones of the duo jones in the next part of her series of conversations with undiscovered musicians on social media.

Based in Exeter, Rachel and Ruby Jones are sisters who’ve recently started uploading covers of their favourite songs to Instagram and YouTube. Their harmonies sound beautiful and their voices fit together so nicely, making them a duo that is worth checking out! I interviewed Ruby about jones’ influences, plans and experience singing in a duo. 

Have you and your sister always enjoyed singing together? 

Ruby Jones: We have always sung together ever since we were children, but this is the first time we’ve put it online! 

I’ve been loving the covers you’ve posted so far! Are you planning any original content? 

Jones: We both write original songs and are hoping to get some of them filmed at some point. We both have quite different writing styles, but it works somehow! 

What kind of vibe will you be going for with those original tracks? 

Jones: They’re kind of gentle country with an indie/acoustic sort of vibe. 

What are your key influences? 

Jones: For me I would probably say Dua Lipa and Bea Miller. For my sister it’s more of a mixture as hers are Etta James and Eva Cassidy but we both absolutely love Alanis Morissette!  

Do you have any long-term plans for your music? Is this something you’re likely to want as a career or just for enjoyment on social media? 

Jones: We have gigged together in the past, but I guess for now it’s just a bit of fun. Hopefully in the future, once this [the lockdown] is all over, we can get some gigs locally but really it’s just about us doing something that we love! 

for now it’s just a bit of fun
