Carmen Jones

With dynamic energy, stage presence and poise, Carmen Jones always puts on a great performance, with “powerhouse” vocals that will stir your soul.  Ms. Jones can move you with her original R&B music, and with her Ultimate Tribute to Teena Marie, with rich and uniquely soulful renditions of the incredible music of the late legendary, Teena Marie.  In fact, on the back of a tour bus in Oakland, CA, when Jones was a teenager, Teena Marie heard her singing Teena songs, and told her “Don’t Stop”!  Carmen Jones’ Ultimate Tribute to Teena Marie tribute is praised by Teena Marie's friends, family, and devoted fans.

Ms. Jones, a Northern California native, developed her keyboard playing, writing and voice while touring throughout California with Sam Bostic & Circuitry. Over the years, she honed her recording and live performance as a lead vocalist for the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, and as a part of an Interscope Records quartet. 

As a solo artist, Ms. Jones writes and produces many of her own songs; performing both the lead and background vocals.  At the request of her social media fans, she released a sexy cover of the classic Anita Baker song, “Angel”, and is currently in the studio recording material for her next release.

Carmen Jones has headlined to sold out venues throughout California and has performed globally, from Madrid, Spain to the New Orleans House of Blues.  She has “shared the marquee” with Howard Hewett, Al B. Sure, El Debarge and Cameo, and is featured singing impromptu with Jamie Foxx in what has become a viral YouTube video.
