Location: New York, NY, USA
Description: Becoming Myself -The solo debut from FL Jones, The album sounds like an eclectic funky mix of Prince before he got religious, and Seal with a little more funk.
Biography: Melody has always played an important role in the life of FL Jones.  From performing for the
amusement of his father’s friends at the local barbershop at the age of 5, to singing backups for
Celine Dion at a private party attended by statesman from around the world; the music has
always come first.  The music of his older siblings left a permanent mark on the development of
this artist.  There was a simple magic in Stevie, Donnie, Prince, Aretha, and Parliament. The blue
lights, the coconut incense and cocoa butter lotion, all of these sounds and smells can be
found in his music.

Although a member of the Hip-Hop generation, FL was always more drawn to bands, live
instrumentation and musicality.  He developed his performance skills in night clubs, theatres,
and industrials across the eastern U.S. He soon began writing and producing demos for others, refining his skills as a songwriter. When he felt he was ready, he made the move to New York city.

6 months after arriving in New York, FL landed a leading role in the Australian Company of the
Broadway musical “RENT” produced by Cameron Macintosh.  While performing in Australia, he
became an Aussie sensation.  Performing as a solo artist in front of millions on various television
programs; culminating in an interview and pictorial in Australian “Rolling Stone”. 
After a year, FL returned to the states where he was cast in the “RENT” National Tour.

After some time on the road, FL was ready to make his
mark as an artist and a songwriter. He began performing in prestigious venues around the city. Such
as the Jazz Standard, Le Bar Bat, The Bitter End, and The Cutting Room.  At the same time he scored
the feature film ”200 American”, providing the underscoring, incidental, and original songs for the
entire film.  He also worked as a composer and Music supervisor for the films “ Whirlwind”,
“RAW Moves” , and most recently The Film “Family” by Faith Trimel.

FL is excited to announce the release of his debut full length CD “Becoming Myself”.
With an airtight production by his partner Myer Lansky, the songs on the album
combine the intensity of modern urban music, with the musicality of the masters. Upbeat,
poignant, and funky, the new record shatters the notion of what is Soul Music.
