Kelvin Jones - Closer
20 year-old Kelvin was born in Zimbabwe before moving to Hertfordshire with his family. He quit a civil engineering course to become a musician after posting a version of ‘Call You Home’ on the internet. The song was discovered by coast to coast US TV show Good Morning America and within 24 hours the track scored 1 million views. Leaving his course after 6 months he spent his student loan on a video camera and some recording equipment. Like ‘Call You Home’, ‘Closer’ is part of Kelvin’s debut album titled ‘Stop The Moment’, released last September. It was only 6 years ago that he first picked up a guitar teaching himself how to play by watching a BB King video. Earlier this year Kelvin supported James Morrison on his UK tour.
