Hailing from Mount Vernon, NY, Kelly grew up having her voice and
her soul nurtured by the local church community. It was this
environment along with personal influences like Stevie Wonder Lauryn
Hill, and Sheryl Crow that helped Kelly shape her mentality about the
role that music plays in our lives.
There is a common sentiment that modern music has progressed as a
commodity but declined as an art-form. Kelly*Jones represents the
resurgence of recording artists who exalt passion and innovation
above profit. Kelly*Jones believes that music, an ancient and sacred
form of communication, used to possess an electricity that could be
felt and understood by anyone, no matter what language you spoke.
It is this electricity that possesses the body, envelops the spirit, and
ultimately makes us feel alive. After years of honing her craft as a
touring performance artist, Kelly*Jones is ready to reveal her
masterpiece to the world.
