Biography

Getting his start like so many others, Jonezy gained local notoriety in high school and college for freestyling at parties. Throughout the last couple of years, Jonezy has played virtually every major venue in St. Louis (i.e. The Pageant, Blueberry Hill, The Old Rock House, The Gramophone, Atomic Cowboy, and more). In the process, he took notice of the segmentation and separatism amongst the many local hip hop sub-genres. As a result, just over a year ago, Jonezy started his own monthly hip hop show, entitled “2nd Story Saturdays.” Studying Marketing/Management in college has helped him to become savvy to what people want, and as a result, the monthly has quickly grown to a St. Louis mainstay, and is now booking national talent. His debut release: “(Mr. FillintheBlank)” is continually receiving local praise from many reputable critics and peers, and is just the beginning for this motivated emcee. His sophomore album, CO$TOMBS was released in late April and has already recieved favorable reviews from the Riverfront Times and Eleven Magazine. Jonezy is in the hip hop collective: The Frozen Food Section, and in 2010, FFS was nominated by the Riverfront Times, for “Best Hip Hop Collective” in St. Louis. He has played shows in Colorado, Utah, Iowa, Illinois, and of course Missouri (both in St. Louis, and Columbia at the University of Missouri). He strives to spread the movement of his music as far as possible, and is currently planning dates for shows across the country. Jonezy delivers intelligent lyrics in intricate word play. He articulates with unbelievable clarity and still maintains a smooth yet edgy sound. *WWW.JONEZYMUSIC.COM*
