Kelvin Jones is a British-Zimbabwean singer-songwriter. Since 2016 he has lived in Germany.”

His rise to fame began with the breakout single “Call You Home.” After a friend shared it on Reddit, the song exploded in popularity, even landing airtime on Good Morning America. This success propelled Jones towards a major record deal with Sony, encompassing Four Music in Germany, Epic Records in England, and RCA in America.
