Ellie Jones


"A reminder of the Sun" is a haunting melodic electronic ballad from the pen and instruments of a solo act called Kintsuku (Ellie Jones).. which illustrates aptly the diversity of music on the Charity Album which is #MacBrumLive 21st Century Rum Runners - Reborn... an E.P. Compilation where up and coming exponents of electronica and EDM have donated an original track free from their catalogue of music to help us and the #macbrum team add to the money raised so far from debut live event #MacBrumLive which was held on 1st of April... We hope to exceed our minimum target of £500 (£150.00 RAISED SO FAR) and hit our desired target of £1,000 to be shared equally between Macmillan Cancer Support and The QE Hospital Birmingham Hospital Charity... Its gonna be a fab album, breaking new ground and new musicians, composers and producers as well as giving something back to those we considered unsung heroes at Macmillan and at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital... When it comes out, please buy it and help us rech if not exceed our targets! We hope to announce a final total by September 2018, at which time #MacBrumLive2 will be happening... whoop whoop... The ethos of The Rum Runner Club is reborn with a philanthropic edge! Enjoy the clip, Ellie along with all the quality acts on the E.P. are destined for amazing things in the future #watchthisspace
