“Previously lead singer with The RGBs as well as Groove Armada, when fronting and co-writing the singles on the Grammy nominated album ‘Black Light’, Becky Jones – aka Saint Saviour – returned with one of the most beautiful and understated albums of 2014. Following the 2012 solo-debut ‘Union’, Saint Saviour collaborated with composer and The Coral guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones for the follow up ‘In The Seams’. The result is 12 deeply personal and stripped-back tracks with softly plucked guitars and the Manchester Camerata Orchestra providing lush strings that allow Becky’s stunning vocal to come to the fore. Single ‘Let It Go’ is an addictive, if sad, highlight while later album gems such as ‘A Word’ and ‘Nobody Died’ catch faster in your mind on every listen without ever grating. Deserving of repeated headphones moments.” – Ben
