The real name of this week’s Launch Artist is Timucin Fabian Kwong Wah Aluo, but it’s cool if you just call him Jax Jones.
His professional name is based on Cockney slang for being alone (“on your Jack Jones”) because he’s got a lot of pride in the early work he produced on his own.
Jax grew up in a very musically diverse household and was studying classical guitar before he realizing he wanted to make music with a lot more edge.
He just teamed up with another artist who broke away from classical training – it’s Raye, a 19-year-old singer-songwriter who dropped out of the BRIT school to pursue pop music.
Their song is called ‘You Don’t Know Me’, but it won’t be that way for long. Take a listen below.
