Raised in Nashville, TN, by a mother who was also a singer, and a father who played in the NFL, Jones learned ambition early on. While Jones released music in her younger years, she’s now stepping into the rich R&B career she deserves, signing with High Standardz / Def Jam Recordings.
You may have seen Coco Jones on the big screen—she’s been in film and on TV since she was a tween, she’s currently starring as the new Hilary Banks in Peacock’s Fresh Prince reboot, Bel-Air. It makes sense that Jones found her way into acting through song—first as a recurring guest on Disney’s musical sketch comedy, So Random!, and, in 2012, as the golden-voiced love interest in the network’s TV movie, Let It Shine. However, music came first, Jones began recording at the age of 9 with the help of her mom.
As the multi-faceted Coco Jones launches her music career with a brand of R&B as soulful as it is relatable, as diary-honest as it is marked by powerful storytelling. And though she’s young, it’s been a long time coming.
