Melo B Jones (formerly known as Tumi), is a 24 year old singer/songwriter living and creating music in the vibrant city of Johannesburg.
The origins of the name are stemmed from the personal journey that she feels encapsulates everything her sound stands for.
“Melo” is derived from my first name (Boitumelo). It echoes the mellow tones and melodies found in her sound; the feeling it gives. “B” is her personal sign off. Her initial. Lastly, by definition, “Jones” is a fixation with something or someone. An addiction. Her music aspires to represent that wholly, from an inspired and fresh angle – especially in a South African context.
Mixing Soul, Jazz, Neo Soul, and R&B, her music is an uncategorized blend of her childhood musical influences, her life and all that she loves in one.
Having performed alongside and collaborated with acts such as electro-house collective, Crazy White Boy (with the hit single “Show Me The Way” from Electro Candi II) and Cape Town based group, Ill Skillz, her sound expands from House music, to R&B to Hip Hop.
She has performed both as a main act, as well as a featuring artist from Johannesburg (Kool Out Live) to Luanda, Angola (headlining with Crazy White Boy for the Super Bock Annual Festival); to doing accompanying vocals at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival (2012).
As a passionate performer and entertainer, she just wants to sing and share her music with the world – and that’s exactly what she
plans to do.
