At a time in music where 'powerhouse' vocalists are few and the essential players have become a 'thing of the past', a breath of fresh air gives way in the form of CoCo Jones.
With a soulful, dynamic voice and the classy, yet bold style of a certified diva, Jones takes you on a journey filled with timeless music and mass appeal.
At Andrews AFB in Maryland on December 4, 1981, singer, emcee and songwriter Keri "CoCo" Jones was born. Finding her vocal talent at 11 years old in church, she continued to sing and hone her gift of through high school. Just after college, CoCo began a solo project befittingly titled 'SuperSoulSista' with FirstBorn Productions.
The collaboration with FirstBorn conceived the sensational hit track “Anticipating”, which was picked up and heavily rotated by radio stations throughout the Midwest and abroad.....
"Anticipating" and four other songs from 'SuperSoulSista' received placement on The Oxygen network's "Bad Girls Club" for two consecutive seasons.
The album also garnered the attention of multi-platinum producer and mogul Dallas Austin, who was impressed by CoCo's artistic skill and songwriting ability.
Coco’s vocals can also be heard on Baby aka Birdman’s album '5 Star Stunna', on the opening track “Fully Loaded” and a host of other projects.
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, multi-talented vocalist and emcee, CoCo Jones represents the next level of classic music.
