Biography

Symphony. There are a myriad of things that one may envision when they contemplate the definition of a symphony. A symphony beyond the obvious speaks to an agreement and engagement of elements that by design could stand alone, nevertheless for a greater purpose organically will unite. At a glance, over the terrain of a symphonic landscape one may find a man, a musician, a composer, a producer, and executive. All of these components are irrevocably dynamic, isolated from each other, but imagine the kind of movement or revolution that is composed when the man is the musician, composer, producer, and becomes the executive?

Meet Jamar Jones.
