Lancashire, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/06/2012 -- According to both Simon Cowell and many of Hollywood’s Elite – Zoey Jones is taking the limelight by storm. As an acclaimed singer, songwriter, dancer and producer, her fierce flair for elegance is about to raise the bar one more time as she announces the launch of her debut single.
Following an extensive period of production, Don’t Think is available from today. Boasting pop/dance tones with a funky edge vibe – it’s an uplifting hit that’s poised to become top of the pops this summer season.
The single marks the first major release for the 28-year-old British star, who is currently touring Asia while simultaneously preparing to launch her new album called “Don’t Think” on 6th Augustth.
With her debut television performance, Zoey (aka Callandria) made it to the finals finalist in Simon Cowell’s Pop Idol.
Zoeys’ musical style is steeped with rich elegance and melodic class. In fact, Zoey is quite often described as “Deliciously desirable, with an image sexier than Jessica Rabbit herself.”
Having first stepped on the stage aged just two; Jones won a prestigious scholarship to the Doreen Bird College of performing arts. Having excelled in all areas she was quickly invited to tour the UK, supporting major named English artists and eventually the world with Portuguese star, Fernando Periera. The work of her debut solo album quickly followed, earning an invite to perform on Lisbon’s world-famous Rock In Rios Sunset Stage, where Zoey shared the night’s bill with Elton John and Leona Lewis.
With recent engagements taking Jones all over the world, the star has still found time to work with Madonna’s DJ and Producer friend, Brazilian model Jesus Luz, as well as forging friendships with Hollywood A-Listers including Rob Schnieder and Adam Sandler.
With a myriad of elite successes and a hectic global schedule, Jones has had plenty of time to reflect on all that her first twenty eight years has afforded.
“In all, it has been a real blast. Although performing may look like an effortless task –hours of rehearsals go into each tour and I work solidly to ensure that everything is alright on the night,” she explains.
Continuing, “It has been a long journey so far and this is only the beginning. I want people to know that if they work hard enough and with enough passion, they can succeed in whatever they put their mind to. Believe in your dreams -- you can make them happen.”
