Welcome to Official Website For Pop/Urban group Love Jones Girlz.
What’s a Love Jones? That thing you love to do so much – you are one with it. It could be anything; sports, science, learning, academics, movies, dancing, someone you love or something you love to do. Meet Love Jones Girlz, three teenage girls from New York City who love to perform. It’s all they’ve been dreaming about since they were little girls. Now they share their Love Jones with you.
Claire Jones, Noni Storm Chinn, Taylor Nirvana Jones comprise the trio “Love Jones Girlz” The name Love Jones itself is a throwback to the1970’s slang term. Now into their third year the group has been grinding and building up its performance muscle and resume. In 2010 Love Jones Girlz won the Faces in the Crowd Showcase in New York, a showcase that has become a springboard for artists on the rise including rappers Maino and Wiz Khalifa and Grammy winner Chrisette Michelle. Love Jones Girlz has performed on various stages across the U.S. including The National Mall in Washington, DC at Black Family Reunion, SOB’s in New York and Arthur Ashe Kids Day at the U.S. Open.
Their debut album, “Addicted to Lipgloss” is the coming of age soundtrack for life as a teenager. At ages 15-16 the writing process has been therapy of sorts. As a result the material is authentic and comes from their real life experiences of living in today’s peer pressured teenage world. From house partying to having a crush on a guy, from girls that hate on you, to making a guy treat you right, the group relates in a real way to kids, tweens, teens and young adults.
Each girl was pursuing the arts individually before coming together as a group. Claire and Taylor where part of the award winning New York based theatrical youth ensemble Tada! They also share the common bond of being students at The Professional Performing Arts School (PPAS) in New York, where Claire is a dance major, studying at The Alvin Ailey School. Notable PPAS alumni include award winning recording artists, Britney Spears; Grammy award winner, Alicia Keys; actress, Claire Danes; and actor Connor Paolo (Gossip Girl) among many others. Noni Storm was actively pursuing a career in modeling and singing when a talent scout with an internationally recognized fashion house spotted her.
The group was formed by Emmy Award mixer and sound designer Charlie Jones, whose partial credits include: In Performance at the White House, The Chris Rock Show, Showtime at the Apollo, Anderson Live, BET’s 106 & Park, Black Girls Rock, Comedy Central and Elvis Costello’s “Spectacle With”. In putting together an artist development team Jones enlisted the help of highly in demand Music Director Ray Chew (American Idol, BET Awards). The current team consists of vocal coach Dr. Eric Turner (NYU /india.irie) and choreographers Jared Jenkins (Broadway Dance) and Javier Cardenas, also an alumnus of Tada.
