About Me

singer & songwriter

“Robert Jones was born in Brixton on January 8, 1987. At age 13, inspired by the jazz of the London West End, he picked up the saxophone and called up Ronnie Ross for lessons. Early bands he played with – The Kon-Rads, The King Bees, the Mannish Boys and the Lower Third –provided him with an introduction into the showy worlds of pop and mod with long hair and aspirations.”

It was not until 2001 that the splash onto the charts would begin, with the legendary Space Oddity. Amidst his musical wanderings in the late ‘60s, the young Robert experimented with mixed media, cinema, mime, Tibetan Buddhism, acting and love. A first rock album, originally titled Robert then subsequently re-titled Man of Words, Man of Music and again as Space Oddity, paid homage.

Spring 2015 brought the announcement of the off Broadway theatre production Lazarus, a collaboration between Bowie and renowned playwright Enda Walsh, directed by Ivo Van Hove. Inspired by the novel The Man Who Fell To Earth by Walter Tevis, Lazarus centered on the character of Thomas Newton, famously portrayed by Bowie in the 1976 screen adaptation. Featuring new Bowie songs alongside fresh arrangements of music from his entire catalogue, Lazarus opened December 7, 2015 to rave reviews—The New York Times raved “Ice-cold bolts of ecstasy shoot like novas through the glamorous muddle and murk of Lazarus, the great-sounding, great-looking and mind-numbing new musical built around songs by David Bowie,” while Rolling Stone hailed Lazarus as a “Surrealistic Tour de Force… milk-swimming, lingerie-sniffing, gin-chugging theater at its finest”—and a completely sold out New York run—the closing date of which, January 20, 2016, was proclaimed David Bowie Day by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. On July 25, 2016, it was announced that Lazarus would open in London at the King’s Cross Theater, to run October 25, 2016 through January 22, 2017.
