McFly’s finest talks industry change and Saturday night tell

With five studio albums, 14 sellout tours, and over 30 different awards, you might best remember Danny Jones for his role in pop-rock band McFly, the four-piece responsible for keeping tracks such as “Five Colours in Her Hair” and “All About You” stuck in your head since the early 2000s.

Jones, however, has a lot more under his belt than a Smash Hits award for 2005’s “Most Snoggable Male” might suggest. After finishing McFly’s Anthology tour in late 2016 – the band’s first series of shows after two years of touring with James Bourne and Matt Willis as McBusted – the musician has been working on a number of solo projects including some exclusive writing and producing for One Direction. Most recent is Jones’ stint as a judge on The Voice Kids alongside Pixie Lott and will.i.am, the latest tear-jerking talent show to be aired on ITV.

Somewhere between the show’s finale earlier this month and preparing for his first child with former Miss England, Georgia Horsley, we managed to grab a few minutes with the man who helped score the soundtrack to the best part of our youth.

How was going back on tour last year with just the other members of McFly? Was it strange after touring for so long as McBusted?

No, not strange at all! Just a lot more room on stage as there was only three other dudes running around with guitars instead of five.

Fair enough. How do you think the industry has changed since your first tour in 2004?

The industry has changed a lot. Streaming has become huge and socials are now a vital part of promotion; we used to sell physical CD’s and do Saturday morning TV which was ace! It’s a super exciting time at the minute as consumers have their very own library of music that they can search and research whenever they want. I do think it has gotten harder for new artists to solidify a loyal, active fanbase though. It’s ok having a smash on Spotify or iTunes and be on all the playlists, but that can be short lived. It seems at the minute that we are a ‘skip’ nation and we don’t seem to even listen to a whole song without skipping onto the next without even knowing who it was. It’s the only downfall about having whatever music you want whenever and wherever.

You’ve done a lot of producing and DJing recently. How does that compare to writing and performing as a band?

They are all completely different. I DJ as a hobby, nothing super serious, but it’s ace fun. However, it doesn’t even compare to playing my guitar; the smell, the feel and the sound of an instrument always wins for me. Performing live, especially with the boys…there is nothing better. But I do like DJing, it’s a kind of escape for me. To go and play a show with your best bros is a superb feeling. Producing I also love, it’s a chance to start with nothing and end up with magic without any opinions. Getting something to sound sonically right is a challenge but it’s a challenge that I love.

Everyone has been loving The Voice Kids, how did you get involved with that?

I asked. I didn’t know they were doing a kids version and when they asked if I would be interested in a kids versions I said yeah! It was very exciting to think that you could find young undiscovered UK talent and help mould them into what they wanted to become. I’ve loved every minute of it.

Ok, quickfire round. Pixie Lott or will.i.am?

Ooh…both!

Backstreet Boys or Westlife?

Backstreet Boys.

McFly or McBusted?

If I had to decide…Mcfly.

Popstar or Opera Star?

Popstar.

Never Mind the Buzzcocks or 8 Out of 10 Cats?

8 Out of 10 Cats.

Favourite member of 1D?

Niall. His banter is on another level.

Tomorrow’s episode of The Voice Kids is gonna be an emotional one..

We’ve just got something in our eye…

There have been several moments during The Voice Kids that have left us feeling rather emotional, but absolutely nothing compares to what coach Danny Jones goes through on this Saturday’s episode.

Following one young performer’s Blind Audition, Danny reveals that he can really relate to the meaning behind the song – so much so that he is left choked up, can’t speak and has to be comforted by fellow coaches Pixie Lott and will.i.am.

When he tries to give his feedback to the young singer, Danny has to stop speaking and look down while Pixie interjects with her thoughts and gives the McFly singer a chance to gather himself.
Pixie and will gather round Danny’s chair, where Pixie asks him if he’s alright and will says: “Those are strong tears, bro.”

“It really, really got to me that moment,” he says later, while as the Blind Auditions draw to a close Danny reflects that “it’s been emotional, hasn’t it?”

Oh Danny, we now love you even more.

IN CONVERSATION WITH DANNY JONES
MUSIC BACK TO BASICS

He is one of four members of one of the most successful bands of our generation, and with a creative record that speaks volumes, Danny Jones is becoming a symbol of what music should really be about. From the success with his band McFly, Jones has become a music producer desired by many, he not only wrote, co-wrote and produced some of McFly’s biggest hits – some of which are played on the radio to this date – but worked with One Direction composing and producing their last album together and has influenced several other artists of our times. Danny’s experience and skills have now landed him at the judging panel of The Voice Kids, on ITV, an endeavor he sees as a great platform to showcase and support young talents.

Danny’s passion for music dates from his early years when his mother got him music lessons due to his great and undeniable interest in music. He learned by doing it, spending countless hours practicing and trying out styles and beats. One thing that is clear, is that Danny Jones is not only a skillful writer and musician but one with a soul looking to tell a story. His passion, talent, and skills combined with this dazzling emotional rawness make him and his creations relatable and real, something our generation, and the one after ours, surely crave for.

We had the pleasure of meeting with Danny after his latest trip to LA to talk about music, his role as a judge at The Voice Kids and how this generation of young talents should be supported and taught. We meet with him at the Long & Waterson showroom space in Shoreditch, a beautiful and sophisticated yet relaxed new apartment development in the heart of East London. The set could not be more appropriate for this afternoon of candid and heart-warming chat with Danny.

As soon as we met outside Long & Waterson, Danny was chilled and friendly, shaking my hand and introducing himself – not that he needed any introduction as I have been a fan of his work since I was a teenager – I ask how he is doing and his answer is direct followed by a cheeky laugh, ‘I’m really well, just jet-lagged and hungry. But I am always hungry.’ We head inside the showroom and get him a healthy vegetable quiche from a nearby cafe. Once Danny had finished his ‘lunch’ we head to the grooming room where he straight-way starts a conversation with the team. Friendly, personal, and captivating.

We sit down at the living space and start chatting about his recent trip to Los Angeles, one which Jones describes as “relaxed and fun”. He tells me that he spent the first two weeks simply enjoying the city, eating burgers and drinking beer. He also attended the worldly famous music festival Coachella, seeing some bands and checking out “what the kids out there are listening to.”

Had you been to Coachella before? Never been. And I found it weird to go and have a beer and watch a band. (Laughs) Because you were in a band, is it different being on the other side? It is actually really nice because you usually hear so many bands from behind the stage and it’s just big loud beats, so to go upfront is like ‘oh, this is how we sound’, it’s kinda nice. But I just went there to see what the kids were listening to. It was interesting. When was the last time you were in LA? Two years ago. Hopefully, we’ll be back more. There are some really good vibes there.

I ask Danny if he found the scene in L.A to be much different from the one we see in the U.K, to which he replied; “I feel like maybe people get more excited over there. Maybe your crazy thoughts and dreams are a bit more out there.” Jones feels that in the U.K, artists tend to play with rawness and emotions more than in the U.S, they wish to tell a story and often don’t need to create a super complicated melody or over the top production as they rely on the emotional element in their songs.

“I find British musicians quite passionate and they create music to be personal. I love being moved by music. My idols are all kind of storytellers. Specially Springsteen. I listen to his music and I see him as an actor and I think ‘How does he find inspiration to write all these songs?’. I know that he watches a lot of documentaries and movies or he gets obsessed with something and I think he puts himself in those situations he is watching. He has character and I think, I need to do that. In the band, we sort of had some of those extensions from reality, from experiences we had and we used to chip in when writing a song, because we were in four, so we would bring our own personal experiences to the table.” …keep reading.
