Coffee Jones, Artist/Producer
Coffee Jones, a five time Dove Award winning, two-time Grammy nominated Nashville recording and hip hop duo GRITS where he’s spent 14 years as they soared as one of the highest-grossing independent groups in hip hop, charting a career that garnered more than 800,000 records sold worldwide, numerous accolades, placements in prime-time television, major motion pictures, an impressive 11 studio albums and the creation of the independent record label Revolution Art. To add to their group’s success, the GRITS track “Here We Go” was also featured on the soundtrack of Jack Nicholson’s hit film Something’s Gotta Give.
As an accomplished songwriter, Jones wrote the gold and platinum-selling single “Ooh Ahh,” which served as the theme song on MTV’s The Buried Life and appeared in the film The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift. Today, with the amicable ending of the GRITS era and the blessing of a longtime collaborator and GRITS co-founder Teron “Bonafide” Carter, Jones set to release his long awaited project for his fans, “Coffee is the Color”–a new album slated for release this fall. With some ‘GRITS’ elements, this new project is his personal, artistic view on life and his experiences with more of a pop and hip hop flavor in responsible music.”
Jones has joined the team of Jefferson Street Sound to assist it’s founder Lorenzo Washington in helping to bring a new sound to historical Jefferson Street. This project and more on the horizon are destined to keep the award winning talent and industry influence of Coffee Jones on the path of a lifetime of achievement in music and entertainment for generations to come.
