THE CROSSING VIDEO – A YEAR ON FROM FILMING

So a year ago today we filmed The Crossing on the windy hills on the edge of the Peak District. It was a great day and my first foray into filmmaking. I worked with film legend John Grey, who I have worked will on my my films (all 2 of them). It’s something I am definitely looking into exploring further with him. Here are some snaps from the day and you can watch the full thing below.

The Vale Live

Hola,

I hope you’re all doing well. I’m slowly getting my shit together during this weird time….in the mean time:

If you missed it, here’s the full video to a acoustic duo set with guitarist Jake Stentiford we made for The Vale, an arts centre in the little town where I live:

Online Gig for The Vale

I have exciting news! I’m doing an online gig. I’ve been debating what to do as I really didn’t enjoy the live streaming thing [sorry about that], but a great opportunity arose. 

Tomorrow [Wednesday 10th June] at 8pm The Vale, which is a fab arts Centre I’m very close to in Mossley, Manchester, have been entertaining the masses by broadcasting gigs from a variety of artists. It’s my turn tomorrow so I recorded the acoustic show [the lockdown bedroom version] I’ve been working on with guitarist [and general dream boat], Jake Stentiford. 

Before lockdown we were going performing around Manchester as a duo. We got around the tech [just about], so if you didn’t get a chance to catch it in real life, I’m bringing you the next best thing tomorrow night, so make sure you tune in. I’ll share it on my Facebook page and it will also be streamed on Youtube [links below]. 

If you can’t tune in live, it will be available to watch afterwards as well on both platforms. 

If you could share the Facebook event link that would be fab [if you do Facebook].

I know I’ve been a little quiet of late, I’m trying to have a break from social media, mainly to stop from going insane, but been on it a bit more lately because of current events. 

I’ve been doing more reading and sharing of being a better ally in the Black Lives Matter movement and sharing resources, especially on Instagram. A great page I recently followed is Waste Free Marie, go follow her account here.

Lots of love and stay safe,

The Crossing Is Out

So busy posting on all the socials, my poor ole website got left behind. I have received such a beautiful response to my little debut. I want to thank everyone for buying it and streaming it, it’s been overwhelming at points. I really wanted to release, even though I am probably insane for doing so at this tricky time. I will update this site more often I promise, been just trying to get through one day at a time.

Lots of love,

The Crossing Album Pre-Order

I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be releasing my first album The Crossing on Friday 24th April 2020.

You can pre-order it on my Bandcamp here:  https://corujajones.bandcamp.com/album/the-crossing-2

It’s a short 6 track album made up of a collection of songs based around the experiences leading up to and following the death of my Dad in 2016. It’s a culmination of 3 years of exploring life, death and everything in between; with many hours crafting the right sound and space for the songs to live in.

I decided that I would go ahead with my release as planned in these strange strange times as I’ve been planning this for a long time and it want to put it out there for people to finally give it a listen. I’ve put it out to pre-order and you can do-so on my Bandcamp. It’s going to be available as a CD with lyric booklet + digital download, or you can just purchase the digital download.

It will also be available on streaming platforms, but if you fancied throwing any pennies my way it would be greatly appreciated (especially now).

I’ll be posting some more things in the run up.

Lots of love, take care of yourselves, and stay at home x

This is the final track on my upcoming album ‘The Crossing’. I recorded this in one take with my partner in crime and wonderful musician, Justin Shearn. The sun had just gone down and we were recording in an old dusty church that had a grand piano. The weather lends itself well, so get some headphones on with a warm brew. Thanks for all the support so far.
