PREMIERE: Tameca Jones “Naked” EP
You'll be hearing about her a lot in the near future
In 2005, Tameca Jones joined the Austin band 8 Million Stories. A few years later, the band fell apart and Tameca sought out new avenues to have her beautiful voice heard. She turned to covers of some of her favorite artists like Tina Turner, Nirvana, Elton John, and Jimi Hendrix. Now, she’s ready to put out her own original music to be covered by next generation’s aspiring artists.
Produced by Josh Moore, Naked showcases her piercing voice over heavy guitars and drums that waver between soul and blues. While “Head Over Heels” feels like a pop song that could be played on Z100, “Sandman” feels like it was grown with tender love in Texas under the warm sun. And staying true to her roots, she also includes a cover of Elton John’s “Bennie and the Jets.”
Tameca had this to say about her EP via email:
“Naked is my first solo project and took many years and tears to make. I used to specialize in tricking out covers. I named my debut Naked because I am stripping away the cover songs and exposing myself as an original artist.”
