Ebony Bones

Ebony Bones is like the British version of Kate Ritche.

Reason One: She starred on UK soap series Family Affairs from 1988 until 2005 and was the youngest and longest standing cast member.

Reason Two: When the lid tightly closed on their acting careers, both picked up microphones. Ritchie is the voice that wakes commercial radio lovers each weekday morning, and Miss Bones (known also by her actual/boring name - Ebony Thomas) reinvented herself as an all-singing, all-dancing, all-song-arranging super star diva.

Her debut single We Know All About You (Zshare) was released in November in the UK and she is currently touching up her full length release with a little help from Richard X (Sugababes) and Future Cut (Kate Nash.) In an interview with The Guardian, Bones said the record is designed for "the iPod generation", every track completely different stylistically. I'm still waiting on confirmation of album release dates (she's probably too busy preparing for Glastonbury round two to concern herself with album release dates) and if you have any idea I'd love to know!

The disco sound of We Know... is a little old, but the cowbell intro gets me every time! Plus, if she's right in saying every track on the record will have a different sound, then I wont judge the book by its cover.

Plus, she's so fucking cool! Check her myspace pics - beautiful and well-costumed!
