When Chloe Jones arrived in Halifax, she wasn't sure how long she'd stay. The singer-songwriter had only visited Nova Scotia a few times but was sold enough to pack up her things and leave her home in England. Now, more than three years later, she's releasing her debut EP Old Palace. The album began to come to fruition when Jones was approached by Codapop's Doug Taylor after playing her set at a open mic. Next thing she knew she was in the studio, making lasting friendships and important collaborations with a group of studio musicians (most of whom still play with her band) and engineer Matt Fudge. Working with these like-minded and experimental musicians resulted in some interesting uses of sound (like recording the sound of an iPhone application, then manipulating it) that set Jones apart from other artists. "I just love unusual sounds and playing around," says Jones, who names Kate Bush as one of her inspirations. Later this spring she'll cross the pond to grace the stage at the London City Showcase, and at a few other gigs, to give Britain a little taste of Halifax.

Wednesday March 30, The Company House, 2202 Gottingen Street, 8:30pm, $10
