First look at Smokey Jones, you might think she’s another Britney Spears or Jessica Simpson. Looks can be deceiving.
Island Def Jam held a listening session for the newly christened singer and once she opened her mouth, a different story is told. Husky vocals and top-notch vocal range—Smokey can be compared to the style of Adele. Her breath control was spot on especially during the cover of Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody”.
Her songs “Naked” and “Bumps and Bruises” illustrates her foray into the music world. Her soulful ambition is easily recognized as humble and eager to continue to carve out her own niche in the music industry and continue in the success of those mega stars Adele and Amy Winehouse.
