Meet the Artist with a Cause: Dom Jones

Pairing her voice of activism to song is just what Dom Jones' has done on her latest release, "Sayin Nothin." This bright artist has always been a beacon of light for social injustices and has been recognized for her unwavering BLM support through the Boston Arts & Music Soul Festival. Her innate ability to teach society through song, about the injustices facing Black citizens throughout history, reminds us all that in between these publicized movements (Civil Rights, Pan-Africanism, Black Panther Party, and Black Lives Matter) black communities have continually been under siege by police departments and racist vigilantes.

When writing songs that have deep political themes, Dom Jones seeks inspiration from similar stirring compositions such as Marvin Gaye's "Make Me Wanna Holler," Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" and Nina Simone's "Mississippi Goddam," in addition to studying the writings of formidable African American novelists. Her inclusive investment in the material she creates is always done with thoughtfulness and educated thought; her lyrics are not strung just from a place of raw emotion, which together make Dom Jones an artist to pay attention to.
