Biography

Winter Jones' sound is Top 40 pop - solid, catchy hooks laced with undeniable talent, reminiscent of Prince, Madonna, and George Michael. His debut album, O My God, was produced by Michael Bland (Prince, Soul Asylum) and Ryan Liestman (Jonas Brothers).

Winter is not just a soulful and versatile voice, but an accomplished actor with numerous film credits such as American Dreamz, Meet the Spartans, House Broken, and The Taqwacores. He also had several recurring and guest roles in television including Roommates, Girlfriends, and HBO’s The Comeback starring Lisa Kudrow. Jones effortlessly uses this screen experience to deliver electrifying performances with cinematic flair.

Before partnering up with Minneapolis powerhouses Bland, Liestman, and John Fields (Demi Lovato, The Jonas Brothers, Pink), Winter formed The Hollabacks, who were the 2010 “Slurpee Battle of the Bands” winners. They opened for N*E*R*D at the Fillmore East in New York City, added their performance to Wolfgang’s Vault, and were the face of Slurpee for six months. They also featured two of their songs in the thriller Cyrus, which Winter also starred in alongside Lance Henriksen.

Assuming the alias LADYBOI, Winter took the underground music scene in Minneapolis and New York City, packing dive bars and commanding his audience to shake it as good and hard as they can give it. Although he shed the persona in 2014, you'll still hear his fans call him Lady.   

Fueled by a passion to both change and entertain the world, Winter makes every show, every song, and every moment invitations to “let your freak-self shine.”

Lyrics

Don't Go Tellin' On Me

Written By: Ladyboi

DON'T GO TELLIN' ON ME

Chorus
Don’t go tellin’ on me
I’ll be a good boy, I’ll keep it all discreet
Don’t want the others to see
The tears and the mess cuz I want them to love me
No, just let it be
Just let it be

Verse 1
I’m sitting in my world of hell
I’m smiling and no one can tell
I’m hurting but I can’t let them see
The ruins inside of me

Please may I confess
These secrets off my chest
Maybe help me sort them through
So I’ll know what to do

Chorus

Verse 2
Is it ok that I’m lost?
Tell me what’s the point of this all?
I’m sick of all that I feel
Can you teach me to heal?

Is there another way?
What road should I take?
I’m so tired of mistakes
Just forget what I say (7x)

Instrumental break

Verse 3
I’m sitting in my world of hell
… can you tell?

Chorus
Don’t go tellin’ on me
I’ll be a good boy, I’ll keep it all discreet
Don’t want the others to see
The tears and the mess cuz I want them to love me
Don’t go tellin’ on me
I’ll be a good boy, I’ll keep it all discreet
Don’t want the others to see
The tears and the mess cuz I want them to love me
No, just let it be

MOLLIWOP

Verse 1
Remember the day
When I gave my heart away
But what I didn't knew
You was a triflin' fool
And no, it wasn't long
Before you strummed me out like a song
Oh, you broke me down
Like a brick to my heart I hit the ground

Chorus
Molliwop
Tales of the broken hearted
Molliwop
Ended before it started
Molliwop
Song for the sad and lonely
Molliwop
No you never loved me

I can't love at all
Til you grind me to the bone

Verse 2
Like a goddamn fool
I thought what we had was true
But what I failed to see
You only loved me on my knees
No, never around
Became the talk of the town
While I defended your name
Night after night you was out gettin' caned

Chorus
Molliwop
Tales of the broken hearted
Molliwop
Ended before it started
Molliwop
Song for the sad and lonely
Molliwop
No you never loved me

I can't love at all
Til you grind me to the bone
No I can't love at all
Til you grind me to the bone

Bridge
I tried to make it last
You shoved my face against the glass
I can't feel love
Unless it's rough

Chorus
Molliwop
Tales of the broken hearted
Molliwop
Ended before it started
Molliwop
Song for the sad and lonely
Molliwop
No you never loved me

Molliwop
Tales of the broken hearted
Molliwop
Ended before it started
Molliwop
Song for the sad and lonely
Molliwop
No you never loved me

I can't love at all
Til you grind me to the bone
No I can't love at all
Til you grind me to the bone

O My God

Written By: Ladyboi

O MY GOD

Spoken Intro
This is a call for the cherished few
Who know the prison of obsession
To be someone's possession
The deep crave and desire
To be bound and admired
For all who know the chill and thrill
The curious who surrender their will

Verse 1
O my god, you tore me apart
Then you left me for dead
You’re so cruel, the shit that you do
But I love when you’re mad
Makes me wonder, why you thunder
Did I misbehave
When you’re mean, my heart skips a beat
Cuz your love is pain

Chorus
O my god
O my god
O my god
O my god

Verse 2
It’s a go, with your hand on my throat
You toss me on the bed
You’re so rough, I can’t get enough
But you want her instead
You don’t love her, make us suffer
But you don’t give a damn
Then you leave, with a bruise on my cheek
That’s how I know that you care

Chorus

Instrumental solo

Verse 3
Still I’m waitin’, tired and achin’
Without you there’s no rest
But I’m here, chained to my fear
When will you call me next

Chorus 2x

Do What They Want

Written By: Ladyboi

Do What They Want

Verse 1
Comb your hair
Sit and stare
Don't look smart
Cause no body cares

Don't talk back
Tongue in shacks
You're a star
That's no way to act

Chorus
You best do what they want to
Best do what they want to
Best do what they want you to do
Because no one will want you
Cause no one will want you
Best do what they want you to do

Verse 2
Boys don't cry
Boys they fight
You're so cool
To sport a black eye

Don't be fem
Act like men
You're a top
Don't question them

Chorus 2x

Verse 3
Take this pill
Fix your grill
You can't lead
You don't fit the bill

Bridge
Soon I'll be a shining star
I'll be loved near and far
I'll beam so bright like the sun
But first give them what they want

Chrous 2x

(Instrumental/Spoken Word)

Chorus 2x

(na na na na na na na na na na)
I'm gonna do what they want me to do
(na na na na na na na na na na)
I'm gonna do what they want me to do
(na na na na na na na na na na)
I'm gonna do what they want me to do
(na na na na na na na na na na)
I'm gonna do what they want me to do
