Becky Jones, aka Saint Saviour, is an English musician. She was formerly a member of the electro band The RGB and toured between 2009 and 2011 with Groove Armada, where she took care of the lead vocals. However, both musical projects have nothing in common with her solo work, which immediately proves her versatility.

In The Seams is her second solo album and contains folky indie songs, mostly with an acoustic guitar and sometimes with piano, percussion and a few strings in the background. But she mainly uses her voice and guitar to tell her stories, a bit like Isobel Campbell does.

Intro (sorry) is a beautiful intro of about five minutes. On Let it Go a piano, some drums and strings add atmosphere, a top song! Bang is her latest single and starts slowly, but it is worth waiting for because at the end a fine melody is unfolded.. No obvious choice for a single, but a perfect way to show what she stands for. I remember would be the more obivious choice for a single. James makes a good start with some xylophone or marimba and some wonderful vocals. St Malo is rather dark, due to the guitar parts.

An album that sounds more introverted than Union from 2012, with personal lyrics and a voice that can perform a lot of emotions.

Becky Jones, alias Saint Saviour, is een Engelse muzikante. Ze was voorheen lid van de electroband The RGB’s en toerde tussen 2009 en 2011 met Groove Armada waar ze de vocals verzorgde. Maar, beide muzikale projecten hebben niets gemeen met haar solowerk, wat meteen haar veelzijdigheid aantoont.

In The Seams is haar tweede soloalbum en het bevat voornamelijk folkachtige indieliedjes. Soms wat zweverig, maar vooral eenvoudige muziek met een akoestische gitaar en soms wat piano, percussie en strijkers op de achtergrond. Maar ze gebruikt vooral stem en gitaar om haar verhaaltjes te vertellen, een beetje zoals Isobel Campbell dat doet.

 Intro (sorry) is een mooi opgebouwde intro/sfeerstukje van zo’n vijf minuten. Op Let it Go zorgen piano, spaarzaam drumwerk en strijkers voor de sfeer, een topnummer! Bang is haar nieuwste single en komt traag op gang, maar is het wachten waard want op het einde ontvouwt zich een fijne melodie. Geen evidente singlekeuze, wel een ideale manier om te tonen waar ze voor staat. I remember zou een evidentere singlekeuze zijn. Op James zorgt een xylofoon of marimba samen met heerlijke zanglijnen voor een goed begin. Even dreigt dat ineen te vallen, gelukkig krikken de strijkers het nummer op tijd weer op. St Malo is eerder donker vanwege de gitaar.

Zo krijgen we een album dat nog introverter klinkt dan Union uit 2012. Persoonlijke teksten en een stem die heel veel emoties kan vertolken. Je krijgt in totaal twaalf kleine nummers op een groot(s) album.
