“Fuzzy’s voice is like something you heard in a dream, truly original.”
Corinne Bailey Rae
Fuzzy Jones is an independent, award winning Alt-Pop-Folk music maker based in Leeds, UK. Fuzzy crafts powerful, but Playful-Protest songs for the 21st Century.
“I like to describe my music as a tea party with Joni Mitchell and David Bowie, where we sit plotting small revolutions! I’m an activist, who is trying to change the world one song at a time. My songs are about climate change, capitalism, mental health and inequality. Stuff makes me mad, so I write about it. It’s very therapeutic. You can follow my activism with my hashtag #UpriseWithMe on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.”
“I’m influenced by all kinds of stuff and all kinds of music, but mainly David Bowie, Serge Gainsbourg and Joni Mitchell, obvs!”

Building a studio called ATA
In 2007 I founded a band called Love of the Brave, with my former co-writer Neil Innes. We then went on to build an analogue studio in Leeds, which we named ATA (All Things Analogue). It’s now an ace record label run by Neil and Pete. Check out the link!
We housed vintage equipment from the 1960s and 1970s, plus an 1894 Beckstein piano, with no legs, which was rescued from a warehouse.
We built the studio on a shoe string and from this came our first set of studio recordings – a self-titled concept album, Love of the Brave. We recorded it on ex-Soviet Union microphones, discarded BBC tape and the same make and model of tape machine that ‘The White Album’ was recorded on. Wow!
In this sanctuary we wrote and recorded a catalogue of music ranging from Funk-Rock to Psychedelic Folk.

Thanks for dropping by. Enjoy the music!
Peas and love,
