Northampton’s rising star Maddox Jones

Having burst onto the scene as a solo artist in 2020 with the critically acclaimed EP, ‘Headspace’, the EP reached #4 in the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart. The follow-up 2021 single, ‘Can’t Wait for the Summer’ followed suit, hitting the top spot on the same chart. Tipped as One to Watch by BBC Introducing Northampton, Maddox has garnered further acclaim across the industry, earning a spot at #5 on Music Week’s Commercial Pop and Upfront Club Chart with ‘Make Me Yours’.

Maddox has a track record of electrifying performances alongside notable acts like Thomas HeatonBeaux, and The Lottery Winners. In 2023, Jones released ‘We All Need Somebody’ in support of Mental Health Awareness Week. Mixed by Michael Brauer (Coldplay) and mastered by Joe LaPorta (Miley Cyrus), the track was inspired by the many students he’s met giving motivational speeches at schools all over the United Kingdom.

Beyond his solo endeavors, Maddox has been sought after as a collaborator, lending his songwriting prowess to fellow artists such as Billy LocketJanet DevlinRIP Youth and Great Adamz. He still found time to write, produce, and perform an unofficial football anthem for the recent World Cup, which drew lots of attention for himself and The Wealdstone Raider. Maddox enjoyed success with The Departure, securing four Top 40 hits, sharing the stage with iconic bands such as The Killers and Placebo, and playing prestigious festivals like Reading & Leeds and Glastonbury.

Amidst a whirlwind of touring triumphs and accolades, including the title of Songwriter of the Year at the NorthamptonshireLocal Music Awards, Maddox Jones has been busy crafting his highly anticipated second album. ‘Change My Number’emerges as the inaugural offering from this forthcoming collection, showcasing Jones at his most raw, honest, and urgent work to date.
