Known for his “fast, intimate rhymes and rock vibes” [Myspace], Detroit-born, Los Angeles-based Jonezen is truly carving his own lane. Taking hip-hop and turning it on its head, the rapper, songwriter, & guitarist is fearlessly incorporating a myriad of bold influences into his songs. He’s becoming a front-runner in the alternative hip-hop space thanks to his unique genre-melding and honest yet masterful lyrics. His talent is exemplified in his latest singles – a “relentless nu-metal meets hip-hop track” entitled “Bars” and an anthemic, arena-ready gem called “Way Up”.
Now, Jonezen is getting back to the basics he built his career on with a personal and raw new song, “Heaven For A Sinner”. It shows a deeper level, stripping him down to honest verses over an acoustic guitar and soft choruses by singer, Lauren Ashley. “This is one of the more personal songs I’ve done in a while,” shares Jonezen. Adding, “I’ve done so many things that I regret in this life. And it’s impossible to make it through life with no regrets… but I think you need to make peace with the ones you have. That’s what this record is all about. It’s my way of making peace and asking at the same time, is there a heaven for a sinner.”
