Biography

Hinx Jones is the collective musicianship of producer/musician/emcee Lonegevity and musician/singer/emcee Gritts. Both members grew up in Anderson, IN, and have been making music together since the late 90’s.

Moving to Indianapolis in late 2008, Hinx Jones performed all around Indianapolis and the midwest since late 2009, including the A3C festival (in Atlanta) in October of 2009 and 2010, the Broad Ripple Music Fest (2010, 2011, 2012), the Indianapolis State Fair (2010), Mojostock (2011), Subsurface Graffiti Festival (2013, 2014, 2015), Gnawbrew Festival (2014, 2015), Fresh Fest (2015), and more than 100+ other events since 2009. They have been featured in many publications and music blogs (The Source, 2dopeboyz, DH Booth, Kevin Nottingham, FakeShoreDrive, BamaLoveSoul, BDTB, Indianapolis Star, and many others).

The sound of Hinx Jones is unique, as although their primary focus is hip hop, they don’t limit their sound to a hip hop audience. Gritts is the main vocalist and singer of the two man group, and also plays drums, bass, horns, keys, and is in the midwest-popular African influenced world band Sweet Poison Victim, and used to play horns in the Pork and Beans Brass Band. Lonegevity is more known for his production, and has showcased production at multiple beat showcases/battles such as iStandard (2008 & 2012), BRMF (2009-2012), Red Bull, JBBB (2009-2014), and others. He has also remixed movie scores, placed music in Independent films and commercials, covered Nuvo magazine, released over 10 instrumental projects, and has created custom sound kits he sells. He is also the co-founder of Beats and Breakfast with Indianapolis’ Skittz (mixture of food, beats, music (all filmed)), the founder of Bringing Down The Band music blog, and the founder of producer lifestyle company Drums Bang. Lonegevity was also selected in 2014 to be a part of the exclusive Red Bull Music Academy Bass Camp in Detroit. Both Gritts and Lonegevity are a part of Cut Camp.

Their live set mixes soulful singing and live hip hop with a DJ.
