Music is a way to express oneself through words, rhythms, voice or sound. Music moves us, and sometimes shapes who we are. Music becomes our identity. For independent artist Carronne Jones, music is everything.

“At the age of two years old, I was singing in my family’s church and also with the church band Family Jones. My mother was an incredible singer. She was one of my favorites. So my passion for music has always been there,” Jones said. Her passion blossomed in 2005 when she took part in a singing competition at the Lyric for the Vickie Winans Rising Star Show. “That was my first big show and from there I was ready,” she said.

The dilemma for Jones was whether or not to pursue a solo career. She struggled with the fear she would disappoint her father by not remaining the lead vocalist for the Family Jones— a role she took on when her mother died.

She said she also worried how fellow church members would view her pursuit of a singing career. “At the end of the day,” she said, “I realized that this was a gift from God. I have this voice and a message that I feel can benefit others.”

The talented singer, writer and producer stepped out on faith, trusted in God and moved forward to take her music ministry to another level.

“I have morals, so I will never do anything that is degrading or goes against what I believe in. My journey as told through my music is one of joy and pain, to being able to release my first CD Expressions,” Jones said.

“Expressions” has something for everyone— Jazz, NeoSoul, Hip Hop and of course Gospel.

“I am very happy and excited about my CD. I had a great producer in Ralph Rogers and a few others who were tremendous in helping put my project together,” she continued.

Jones explained that the hardest step now is getting local radio and retail stores to support her project in the Delaware, Maryland and Virginia area.

“There is so much talent here in Baltimore, D.C. and the surrounding area, that venues, stores and radio really should support the local talent here in the area,” said Jones.

Jones has the support of one local business, The Way Christian Supplies located at 5851 York Road in Baltimore. On Saturday, January 19, 2013 from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. it will celebrate her CD release with an autograph signing and listening party. So come on Baltimore come out and support an independent artist!

Bio

Like many, Carronne’s musical career started as a child singing in her church’s choir. However, most singers aren’t fortunate enough to have master musician Pastor Carroll Jones Sr. for a dad. Being around her father allowed Carronne to learn from and be exposed to some of the best musicians, producers, and National Gospel Recording artists. It can truly be said that the musical expressiveness and creativity around Carronne ignited a fire in her that exist to this day.

While attending Morgan State Carronne worked on projects with top producers such as Lee Jerkins and Rodney Jerkins. At the same time she traveled as a member of the Family Jones gospel group. This continued until 2005 when Carronne participated in the Rising Star competition sponsored by Vicki Winan’s. After the competition Carronne received a great deal of positive feedback and embraced the idea of a solo career.

After a few years on her own Carronne has been gracing venues with her Neo Soul, Smooth Jazz & Inspirational sound and a featured artist at the Black Heritage Arts festival in Baltimore Maryland, performed at National Public Radio, Charm City Improv, Eubie Blake National Jazz Institute & Cultural Center, Howard University’s Homecoming, The Baltimore Convention Center, The Lyric Opera House in Baltimore, Md., Indoor & Outdoor Expos and a host of performances throughout the Northeast region. She has shared the stage with David Chance formerly of Ruff Endz; Kindred the Family Soul, Jae Deal, Stellar award winners, Jessica Greene, Isaiah Thomas, Robert Pearsons, Ernest Pugh, and many others.

Her musical influences are defined in her vocals, lyrics and tracks. She truly believes in “singing for the soul.” To feed her audience Carronne has built a band which includes some musical masters such as Kevin Jackson (bassist/guitarist with Marc Evans, Marcell & the Truth), Phillip George (Producer of Africa's Best, singing competition), Marvin Miller Jr., Carroll Jones Sr (Writer/Producer), Ralph Rogers (trumpet with Donald Byrd), and Ron Rolling (trumpet with Parliament).
