On this Smart Sunday I would like to introduce you to Ms. Coco Jones
She is the next wave in the revolution of music.This beautiful young lady is a singer, song writer, rapper and graphic designer. Coco Jones is no stranger to the music industry. The first time I saw her perform I was not prepared for the full spectrum of Ms Coco Jones' talent. I suppose I could tell you all about her amazing vocal range, her versatile rap style and her energetic performances. I could but I don't believe I would effectively convey in words what it is to see her in the flesh. I would suggest that you find her in a town near you on the 54 Weeks Tour (www.54weeks.com).
“It may seem crazy to pick up and leave everything familiar to go on a year-long tour to others, but I’m on this journey to better myself as an artist and as an individual. The tour is a self-funded, grassroots tour much like what many Rock Bands do to be heard. I and 4 other solo artists packed into a van and we’re making it happen on our own, i.e. Bookings, Management, Recording, Packaging, Promo...everything. I believe I need to invest that in myself first before I expect anyone else to do so.”
Jones is taking the tour as an opportunity to perform and push material from “Customs” as well as new solo project, “Anticipating”, and Mixtape, “Nosce Temet: Know Thyself”.
Coco’s vocals can be heard on a number of independently released projects with artists including BIGREC, THE-5IVE, Collin Gibson, Jawz of Life, Shred the Verbal Tongue, Dangerous Rob, Phurious Stlyes, IMA, and on well knowns like Baby aka Birdman’s album '5 Star Stunna', on the opening track “Fully Loaded”.
Given the sensuality of Janet Jackson, the charisma and edge of Pink, the essence & soul of Mary J. Blige and Aretha Franklin,
and the lyrical prowess of Lauryn Hill, songwriter, vocalist and emcee, CoCo Jones represents the next level of classic music.
