SHOWTIMES: 7:00PM AND 9:00PM. It’s rare for the world to experience artistry that is so genuine, so heartfelt…so captivating. Welcome to the world of singer/songwriter, Cleveland P. Jones. He is the true embodiment of soul and jazz. When asked about his future in the music industry, he stated “my mission is longevity, not instant fame. I’ve learned by example and experience not to rush a good thing.”
A humble native of South Carolina, Jones started his artistic voyage under the tutelage of his mother and grandfather, who were the lead singers in his church. A graduate of two prestigious institutions, Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia and Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, Cleveland earned his degrees, but also engulfed himself in the study of music. He instantly fell in love with soul and jazz.
Cleveland’s debut album, Ace of Hearts, was released in 2013, and he was named SoulTracks.com’s New Artist of The Year as a result. He also had the honor of opening for soul legend Chaka Khan and was the special guest of The Shadowboxers. His original song, “Don’t Leave Me” from his debut album was a major feature in the 2016 Netflix release, “ECHO PARK”. In 2017-2018, Cleveland was privileged to tour many cities through out Eastern Europe as a solo artist. Currently, Cleveland is expanding his brand by writing and recording soul, jazz and house music and continues performing nationally and locally. Simply put, Cleveland is committed to deliver unadulterated, timeless music. He is well on his way to higher places, but will always be grounded in his quest to heal souls one song at a time.
