Jules Jones is a female vocalist who first started singing with the Legendary Ten Seconds during the recording of the History Book Part One, Mer de Mort and Devon Roses albums. These were released in 2019 and are English folk rock concept albums with a medieval theme in a similar style to the five Richard III and Wars of the Roses concept albums previously recorded by the band. Jules has subsequently continued to contribute her melodic singing to some further songs of the Legendary Ten Seconds. The latest album of the Legendary Ten Seconds was completed in August 2022 and it is the first album of the band to feature the lead vocals of Jules Jones on all of the tracks. Jules also sings with another South Devon based group called the Estuary Band. Her lovely singing is also featured on the New Beginnings album recorded by Phil Swann.
The Legendary Ten Seconds started off as the solo music project of Ian Churchward during the time when he was the lead guitar player of The Morrisons who were featured on John Peel‘s radio one show back in 1987. In 2013 Lord Zarquon joined Ian’s music project and since then various guest musicians and vocalists have helped out in the recording studio.
