dRedzilla - Singer, Keyboards,Programming, Production

dRedzilla - Conscious Vibe EDM - bringing some of the energy of dub into the electro world but offering a positive perspective and outlook. I've just released a new single, 'Limitless'in a Pop Electro House style. Last year I released another EDM single One Energy and Two rock albums from dub-rock band Red Beat. In 2012 I released an EP 'Pure Victory', in a Dubstep style.

I've been a singer songwriter from an early age. My first band Beowulf was prog rock and featured Paul Ferguson, later of Killing Joke, on drums. My second band After Science later renamed Jones Boys comprised me and two of my brothers Paul and Martin on drums and guitar, with Majid Ahmed on bass. In 1980 I moved to London and formed Red Beat, who released 3 singles and recorded a Jon Peel session for BBC Radio 1. We supported U2, Killing Joke, The Thompson Twins, The Damned and my brother Howard Jones at top London venues. In 1984 I released a single in Germany called Power Reflex and performed it on Formal Eins, a pop TV show in Munich. I changed my stage name to Red White and the band was called Red White and Phoenix. It featured Paul my brother on drums and Rasta, Cheese Benson, on guitar. I was playing keyboards live now as well as fronting the band. In 1986 I worked for my brother Howard Jones as a keyboard player. I started with a live TV appearance at Japan Aid from a baseball stadium in Tokyo. I then did several TV's with Howard all over Europe and the UK, including TOTPs. In 1987 we toured Ireland, Britain, the USA and Japan. A massive seven piece line up, we travelled with 3 tour buses and 3 artic trucks. Venues include Dublin Boxing Arena, The Royal Albert Hall, London, LA Forum, Madison Square Gardens, New York and the Buddhokan, Tokyo.
In 1988 my son was born and I moved to West Wales where I began to get interested in Celtic Music. In 1995 after a spell as a teacher of Performing Arts at a local College, I recorded a Celtic Album as part of a band called Ysbryd (which means 'spirit' in Welsh). Chaozmos was released on CD the following year and I played the songs live all over West Wales.In 2000 I released a Latin Jazz album, Passaporte para Cuba with Cuban artist Raul Speek. I released a solo album in 2010 called Red Lotus under my real name Roy Jones. I am now making Dubstep tunes and have adopted the artist name dRedzilla to try and reflect the flavour of my new work.
