Eliza Hardy Jones has been a fixture on the Philadelphia music scene for years. She was part of the duo Buried Beds in the early 2000s, and has lent assistance on tour with other bands, including Strand Of Oaks. Jones' solo debut, Because Become, is a mature pop album she made with longtime producer Nick Krill, as well as Dave Hartley (who worked with The War On Drugs) and Brian McTear. The resulting sound sets up the songs, which move through a wide array of styles, very well.
