ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hailing from Bristol, SeriousMusic is a collection of the South West's most promising up and coming musicians. Headed by Manchester native Hollin Jones on keyboards, programming, vocals and production, the band also features Colombian MC and frontman Mao, human drumming tornado Matt Albon and local experts Stig Manley and DJ Jinja Joe on guitar and decks respectively.

With each band member having different musical backgrounds, Jones brought together a wide range of elements when writing debut album "The Heights" in his Bristol studio. His own history of playing on the Manchester indie and dance scenes of the mid 1990s was as influential as his love of underground hip hop, dub, jazz and countless other genres. The unique vocal talent and finely crafted lyrics of resident MC SpokesMao blends with the hooks and melodies woven by Jones to produce something truly new and refreshing, an
unmistakably fresh sound. Written, produced, arranged and mixed by Jones with invaluable contributions from the band, The Heights is the culmination of several years of work and countless recording sessions. Incorporating a heavy dose of hip hop with funk, dub, jazz, blues and trip hop, SeriousMusic's tracks span all those styles and more.

The album was mixed and mastered at Portishead's Bristol studio, and members of the legendary Bristol band were involved in its recording. SeriousMusic is an incendiary live act, drawing on the vast experience and different backgrounds of all band members. Music from the album and solo work by Jones has also been used extensively in BBC and ITV broadcasts. Hollin Jones has worked with a number of influential bands and artists and also produces and remixes for selected friends.

“The Heights” is avaliable now on CD in selected stores and digitally on iTunes, Napster, eMusic and Rhapsody.
