Born in Philadelphia, PA in a city that's most famous for its soul/R&B artist such as Boyz II Men & Teddy P., its tough for someone who is just a rapper. Luckily Row Jones is not just a rapper, but a full-fledged classically-trained musician, songwriter, performer and somewhat of a graphic artist as well. In an industry full of fast singles, dirty hooks and synth heavy beats, Row takes elements from these formulas to create a vibe that can be heard for years to come. Think...the Snoop Dogg of the east... minus the hair. Or the 'Smokey Robinson of Hip Hop." Songs such as "Oh Yea" and "Confusion" are proof of this vibe.
Performing on stage since he was 11, Row Jones began his musical journey in 5th grade as a classically trained Viola player. He has performed all over the east coast as a solo hip hop artist in places such as The Middle East and M.I.T in Cambridge, MA, CoCo66 in Brooklyn, NY and Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. He has shared the stage with hip hop veterans such as Medusa and Tony Crush of the Cold Crush Brothers and also up & coming indie acts Anjuli Stars, Big Jus and Raydar Ellis. In the last few years he has been able to further his brand through internet marketing and digital promotion. There is no doubt that this interesting young talent should be on your watch list.
