I am a descendant of a long line of musicians and vocalists, born in 1970 in Los Angeles, California; I became interested in singing at the age of 3. At a very early age, my talent was realized. I sang my first solo in front of hundreds of elementary school students at the age of 12, wrote my first song at the age of 13, and recorded for the first time at the age of 14. After many courses in music, vocal lessons and constant solo appearances within the church, I felt comfortable enough to begin recording with other acts. In 1992, I recorded with a small rap group located in the Pacific Northwest. In 1993, I began performing at The Rain Tree, a local nightclub. 1994 I won several talent contests, which exposed me to a wider audience. During 1995 I displayed my talent in a local version of ShowTime at the Apollo held at the Rialto Theatre. In 1996, I blossomed as a live performer at The Vault, another local nightclub where I developed and perfected my live act. By the time I was 25, I acquired a vast amount of experience from performing in front of large crowds. In the summer of 1998, as my star began to really shine, I opened for the late comedian Rudy Ray Moore, AKA Dolomite, at the Temple Theater in Washington State. During 1999 through 2001, this 31 year old vocalist recorded vocals for Ocean Records Recording Artist Azarel as well as other local recording artists. On December 8, 2009, I made my radio debut. I was featured on Hooah Radio; a veteran owned and operated internet radio station with a world wide listener base in 175 countries which equals 77.7% of all countries. During 2010 I had the pleasure of singing with Darren Motamedy a local Jazz musician, at the Muckleshoot Casino in Auburn Washington. Im currently writing and recording my own music in hopes of sharing my lifes testimony through song. Singing makes me feel alive; Performing is one of it's perks." - Cecret Jones
I began singing at the age of 3. I started learning to harmonize with professional vocalist on the radio. So after I joined my church choir and found this to be real easy. I was always in choir courses throughout school. I sang my first solo in elementary school. I sang the black national anthem in front of the whole school, which also include parents of the students. I started to noticed I felt very comfortable on stage. Where it terrified others it invigorated me. I recorded my first song at 13. It was a song I wrote and the whole studio experience was exciting to me. I kept writing and recording in between working full time. I did hooks for hip hop artists but found that I preferred r&b and smooth jazz. This did not go over too well with the hip hop artists I worked with so I quit and started doing my own music. Rusty and afraid I wrote and recorded my own music. It's different when you are calling the shots. My music has changed since my first few cuts but growth is expected. I'm still not through growing and i hope I never stop.
I am singing as a guest artist with Darren Motamedy out at the Muckleshoot Casino in Auburn Washington on Sunday nights. I currently do not have a band ... so if you know of a band that would like a singer of my caliber, please send them my way.
Anita Baker, Chaka Khan, Natalie Cole, Aretha Franklin, and too many to remember at the moment.
Listen and tell me what you think. If you don't like them please don't be too harsh. I'm still trying to find myself as an artist that is writing and recording all her vocals. Any and all vocals you hear except for one (I add my hubby) are me. I do not use a harmonizer.
