Manchester, multi-instrumentalist Cobain Jones packs a mighty punch with a highly, classic indie vibe which is a pure delight.
I spoke to him about his year so far, festivals and his music
MIMR: Thrilled to have you on MIMR, tell us about your year so far and what can we expect from you in the near future?
Cobain: This year has been absolutely crazy due to the fact last November I was invited by Tim Burgess out of the Charlatans to play Kendal Calling in July. I’ve played a handful of gigs, I have Band on the Wall on the 18th of June which will be class. And to answer your question songs are in the works and maybe a few more releases along the way.
Cobain: Thank you so much it’s massively appreciated. My biggest influences writing music are the Manics, Stone Roses, Beatles and Charlatans just because they are my favourite bands.
MIMR: What was your earliest musical memory?
Cobain: My earliest musical memory was getting a keyboard for Christmas when I was little but I never really pursued music til I was around 14.
Cobain: My dream headline acts would be (hypothetically) The Beatles, Pink Floyd and The Smiths.
Cobain: It’s been a pleasure! My twitter is @Cobain_Jones, my instagram is @cobainjones and my music is on Spotify, Apple Music and all other major platforms just type in ‘Cobain Jones’.
