London-based singer-songwriter JONES has released a new track titled “Hard to be Happy”, a groovy and soulful track that discusses the universal experience of sadness and feeling unfulfilled. Collaborating with Dutch artist Benny Sings, JONES was able to create a joyful production that juxtaposes the somber lyrical content. The lyrics are relatable and universal, with JONES discussing how sometimes it’s difficult to find happiness, and the feeling of being overshadowed by those who seem to be more successful.
With a background in music from a young age, JONES’s talent for infusing soul with pop and elements of jazz has garnered critical support from publications such as The Line of Best Fit and CLASH. She has previously collaborated with artists such as Tourist and Cazzette, and her signing with 37 Adventures led to performances on Later… With Jools Holland. “Hard to be Happy” is a testament to JONES’s evolution as a songwriter, showcasing her growth as a talented artist.
