The first thing you take away from an initial meeting with Chris Jones is the inability to shake the uncanny feeling that he does remind you of someone quite familiar.Indeed, it's only on prodding that Chris Jones will reluctantly admit that he is the sibling of the internationally celebrated diva of film and music, Grace Jones . A point he does not dwell on as he is determined to be recognised and acknowledged for his own talents and contributions. He will also not tell you that his brother is the renowned tele-evangelist, Bishop Noel Jones.Jones bears a striking resemblance to his sister and their bonding goes beyond blood. His interest in music started when Grace and himself headlined a gospel group in Syracuse New York called the virtues that was headlined for their father, Bishop Robert Jones.
Bitten by the performance bug, the young Chris Jones, with his striking good looks and hint of the exotic, went on to carve out a name for himself as a model before actually moving to the business aspect of the industry by establishing his own modeling agency.
While managing his agency, the performance bug came calling again and he made cameo appearances as a singer . In Paris, he recorded his first single, American Lover , which earned rave reviews and was also a favourite on the European club scene.The debut of the single American Lover was followed by his next release in New York City dubbed The Last Star . It became the toast of the underground music scene and a favourite dance number in the Big Apple before crossing the Atlantic to become a hot dance tune in European clubs and other hot spots.
It was at this juncture that Jones took a break from the music industry to concentrate on fashion, styling hair and make-up while running his modeling agency. While on his hiatus, however, his beloved sister Grace called, and off he went to London to assist her on her Hurricane album. He got so immersed in the music and club culture that he simply never moved back to Miami, where he had made his home after moving from New York.
Undaunted by his sister's star billing and international recognition, Chris Jones went back into the studios and he will release his second album, "Strong 2".with TRAX RECORDS, in November. The Title track "Strong 2", is mixed by Eric Kupper, His new high energy album, has several new original songs, a few, mixed by Martin Ryan, who also produced Chris Jones Strong video, and Martin Ryan also remixed , "I Wonder Why", produced by Christian Jones and Mark Kamins, "The Rhythm of Love", and" No Flowers, No Trees".There are other mixes,on "Strong 2", by Robert Owens, Jamie McCaffery, DJ, Dejan Milicevic, and Dany Marcelis.His new album, sees a change in the direction of his music to a more commercial pop/chart topping sound.
