Becky Jones, better known as Saint Saviour, is an English musician from Stockton-On-Tees. Formerly of the electro band The RGBs, she toured with Groove Armada as their lead singer in 2010 before deciding to create her own solo act. Her song, "This Ain't No Hymn" appeared in the 2011 trailer for the film Miss Bala.
As she writes on her official website, "I’ve been hanging about the periphery of music for a few years now, mainly collaborating with electronic producers, writing really positive, upbeat pop/dance tunes." Originally from Stockton-on-Tees, she moved to London in 2003. She adopted the name 'Saint Saviour' after seeing it regularly while running in the St Saviour's Dock area of London. She was lead singer in the RGBs, who toured with Groove Armada, before joining the latter. In 2010, Saint Saviour provided a vocal collaboration for Groove Armada on their album, Black Light, and toured as the band's singer.
She is also the head of songwriting at Tech Music School.
