Coined the "Tina Turner of jazz" due to her long legs, fierce hair, and aggressive vocal stylings, Tameca Jones is a rare creature--an Austin, TX musician actually born and raised in the musical city. Since embarking on her mission to put her unique and soulful spin on covers in 2008, she has taken the local scene by storm with her potpourri of jazz, blues, rock, and soul. She opened for Gary Clark Jr., BB King, Smokey Robinson, David Sanborn and Joey Defrancesco, Oleta Adams, Take 6, Al Di Meola, Robert Cray, Ruben Studdard, and many other notable artists. In the summer of 2010, she won a prestigious contest that allowed her to open for Jill Scott, Anthony Hamilton, and Mint Condition.
At one of her shows, you can hear her refreshing takes on a wide range of artists from Nirvana and Jimi Hendrix to Talking Heads and Bob Marley. Her band are regulars at established Austin venues like The Elephant Room, Z Tejas, Central Market, One World Theatre, One2One Bar and the Continental Club Gallery. In San Antonio, she plays often at Carmen de la Calle.
