Hailing from Blockley, Gloucestershire Joe Jury built his musical taste upon the influences of artists such as Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye and Peter Gabriel and shortly after began to use these influences to build a foundation for the music that he would soon write for himself.
After years of hard work perfecting his craft Joe Jury is ready to show the world his music with the release of his debut E.P The Streets of Campden due to be released February 10th.
Having had the pleasure of listening to the Streets of Campden E.P before it’s release, it is immediately clear that Joe Jury was ready to make his statement as an artist. Every single track on this four-track E.P embodies powerful arrangement choices that give Joes voice the support that it needs to standout within the mix.

The track-list opening with the title track Streets of Campden, is incredibly strong and the perfect track to introduce the listener to Joe Jury in terms of the arrangement and instrumentation there is strong emphasis on acoustics to create depth and Joes voice is untamed, unlike many other artists vocally and lyrically he makes his music even more personable and honest. Then followed by tracks such as; Give me all you’ve got, Love you since yesterday and If heaven had a face which all follow suit in terms of creating a very chilled E.P to listen to, of which many of the hooks will stick within your brain until you go back to listen again.
