Universal Austria´s well renown singer/songwriter Stella Jones takes the spotlight with her new Album "The Pursuit of Silence". Stella Jones has enlisted some of the most talented Austrian and international musicians to support her debut album including master drummer Thomas Lang, bass legend Willy Langer and a host of others. "The Pursuit of Silence" - an infinitely powerful and funky record - favors groove and breathing melodies above complicated and artificial sounds. By constructing all of her backing tracks herself Jones creates a polyphonic universe full of encrypted conceptions of her reality. It is a work of a restless and creative polymath confronting the world around her and opting for a feeling that reflects her impulses.
