Twenty-eight year-old rapper/songwriter, Jones, grew up in a musical family just outside of Los Angeles in Panorama City. At the age of seven he followed in his grandfather’s footsteps and learned to play the piano. Through the encouragement of his grandparents, he fell in love with performing at an early age. He performed in various recitals and home performances often reciting the lyrics from his favorite artists for family and friends. Though he loved to perform the works of his musical idols he always felt he had words of his own he wanted to share with the world. In his early teens he fell out of love with the piano but never lost his passion for creating and performing music. Jones has spent the past few years pursuing a degree in journalism and dodging the family pressures to establish a career in what his family considered a “practical” profession. It was recently that Jones fully realized his passion and masterfully assembled a collection of songs that reveal his musical finesse and presence: Books vs Beats.
Jones’ first EP, Books vs Beats, can be heard on Souncloud, Spotify and iTunes.
