Sounds Like: David Gray, Bob Dylan, David Bowie (Official)
Bio: Formerly known as Ozzy Lino, the music man has taken a new stage name with the release of his latest album, Taking It Easy. You can catch Jewls doing acoustic and rock sets at venues all over Malta. The Maltese-born, Australian-raised singer/songwriter delivers exceptional live performances.
“Jewls Verse is the recently revamped, healthier and perhaps more sensible version of Ozzy Lino, known mostly as one of resident singers on quirky, local TV programme Red. Back then, Lino was a big guy with a bear-like build, a skinhead and cocky sunglasses. Now, the singer/songwriter is barely recognisable. Apart from losing a lot of weight, he grew back his curls and sports a totally different look portraying a somewhat more placid and collected image which reflects itself in the title of his second album, Taking It Easy. What definitely did not change is his inborn love for music. “People dance to music. They don’t dance to painting or sculpture or while reading a book or watching a film. There’s something amazing about music. It can touch the soul.” Jewls Verse has no reservations about his passion for his singing career. Most of us can quote song lyrics more easily than we quote great literature, and we find those lyrics deeply personal.””
