The group has just released two new singles, “Cover Girl” for urban leaning pop stations and the high energy EDM single “Higher for the Pop leaning dance stations. The power trio of Claire Jones (17), Noni Storm Chinn (17), Taylor Nirvana Jones (16) has endured a true rock n’ roll story over the past four years; a process that started off as six group members, then five, then four, and now a trinity, the power trio has persevered the school of hard knocks.

Love Jones Girlz is releasing their debut album “Addicted to Lipgloss” first quarter 2015. The eleven song set plays like a coming of age soundtrack for life of the modern teenager. For Taylor, Claire and Noni the process has been like therapy. The material comes from their real life experiences of living in today’s peer pressure social media driven world. From being your own “Cover Girl” to having a crush on a guy, to girls that hate on you to making a guy treat you right, the group relates in a real way across the board. “Rumors” the debut single addresses the timely topic of cyber bullying.
