about

Indiana-bred, LA-based artist and producer Jeremy Jones grew up in a deeply musical community, but one that sounded very different than the radio-ready American R&B of his debut mixtape 'Late Bloomer', out May 31st on Darling Recordings. In Jeremy's mother's house mainstream music was forbidden; the devout, Jamaican family instead listened to gospel music and sang in church. Jeremy found his creative outlet in the orchestra, studying viola performance in college, before moving to Los Angeles with his indie rock band. It's been quite the journey.

In 2017 Jeremy delivered his debut solo single "Runnin'", building on the success of his standout features on the 2016 collaborative album FLANCH. The track immediately established him as an exciting new voice, carving out his place with a DIY work ethic rare in pop music.

'Late Bloomer' collects the best work from Jeremy's first two years as a solo artist and presents a perfect snapshot of his talent, his aspiration, and, more importantly, himself as an artist.

Jeremy sums it up:

"It’s taken me way too long to believe in myself. Not just in my skills, but who I truly am as an individual."

Give Jeremy Jones a spin. You may just become a believer yourself.

about

Jeremy Jones Los Angeles, California

Indiana-bred, LA-based artist Jeremy Jones has been obsessed with music for as long as he can remember, but the music of his youth was nothing like his new single "Road". Throughout his childhood, mainstream music wasn't allowed in his devout, Jamaican household. Instead, he grew up listening to gospel music, playing violin and viola, and singing in church and musicals. He's come a long way. ... more

Track Name: Intention (feat. Mr. Campbell)
Everything I love is gone
Lost the vision, lost intention
Cuz I rolled up everybody's thoughts
And I smoked it like a blunt

Suffocating, it’s hard to breathe in
Try to be real, but even lovers can dim the dream in you
When we were young, we would
Climb up in the apple tree
Never scared of crazy things
Now I think I care too much
We smoke on what they think of us

I feel like

All my intentions are wasted
Trippin’ on the words that you don't even say
(Never be never be never be wasted)
And all of the hours, I'm taking control

They try to burn me out
They try to roll me out
They try to smoke me out but
Counting my blessings
Thank god

I like what I see when you're not around
Cuz you only try to pull me down
In the pool of misery
I used to drown out all my dreams
Never in me did I believe
Had to let go of everything
I had to burn down everything

To turn into super saiyan
I'm tripping but you never said it
We used to climb up on the apple tree
Never run from anything
Now I think we care too much
We smoke on what they think of us

I feel like

All my intentions are wasted
Trippin’ on the words that you don't even say
(Never be never be never be wasted)
And all of the hours, I'm taking control

The isms and chisms
Fizms and bizims
Slizims and blizims
They try to have me stressin’
But I’m counting my blessings
Track Name: Runnin'
Have you ever found it
Have you really found love?
Do you ever doubt it
Or are you floating so high in the sky?

See I had stopped thinking about it
A million faces on the ground
They never gave their heart away
So I never gave you anything
Now all you do is hate me

Say what you want
I'm not runnin'
From love, love, love, love

I'm not runnin'
Runnin'
From love, love, love, love
Not like the last time

Well all you wanted was to learn about me
I won't commit to anything
And all you wanted was to get to know me

The broken hearts are on the dance floor
We're all dancing for a heartbreak
When we're runnin' from the same things
But I don't want to live that way
Life is not forever

Say what you want
I'm not runnin'
From love, love, love, love

I'm not runnin'
Runnin'
From love, love, love, love
Not like the last time

Oh if I gotta change
Then that's what I gotta do
I won't let nothing at all
Keep me away from you
Don't think you'll ever catch me runnin'
You won't catch me runnin'

Say what you want
I'm not runnin'
From love, love, love, love

I'm not runnin'
Runnin'
From love, love, love, love
Not like the last time
Track Name: Pretty People (feat. Elyssa Nicole & Mr. Campbell)
Walking around you’re the coolest on the street (oh you’re cool ugh)
Rockin’ your outfit from Japan (is that foreign though)
The one you bought on vacation last week
You’re still on your parents plan

All of the peculiar things
Seem to be alright now
Easy following the coolest team in the fair weather
Used to laugh about talk about us
Better catch up you can’t live without us

Pretty people
Pretty people
You swear swear swear that you know me
Pretty people
Pretty people
I’m swer’ swer’ swervin’ on you

With the big ol’ butt
You got becky with the big ol’ butt
Is it fake or not
Tell me is it fake or not

Move to the city you’re the coolest on the street
Torn up denim rock expensive style
Run from your home in the burbs had to leave
Smoke trees and watch anime, Melrose Avenue
Hundred dollar shirt at the thrift store
Keep those receipts from the thrift store

All of the peculiar things
Seem to be alright now
Easy following the coolest team in the fair weather
Used to laugh about talk about us
Better catch up you can’t live without us

Pretty people
Pretty people
You swear swear swear that you know me
Pretty people
Pretty people
I’m swer’ swer’ swervin’ on you

With the big ol’ butt
You got becky with the big ol’ butt
Is it fake or not
Tell me is it fake or not

Pat the powder on the face to keep the glow right (cake the face)
And she hit the tan spot enough to keep the brown nice (to get the melanin)
Doing what you gotta’ do to fit in
Dime penny worker use your body just to
Get up in the club or the spot
The club fireworks ain’t cheap
Boo trust, you turnin’ up or not (we turnin’ up though)
The catch up game is a must
You ain’t hip if you don’t fall for lust
The bird is the word swerve on the
Rings, kids, and things
Hollywood monogamy is a curse
But it’s worse when that new bag’s outta stock
Or the jock at the gym ain't on your clock
You got gains but you’re scarecrow space locked
The life style is a force but we still flock

All of the peculiar things
Are known to be real lit now
Steady following the coolest teams in our fair weather
You just can’t laugh about us talk about us
If you can’t catch or can’t live without us

Pretty people
Pretty people
You swear swear swear that you know me
Pretty people
Pretty people
I’m swer’ swer’ swervin’ on you

With the big ol’ butt
You got becky with the big ol’ butt
Is it fake or not
Tell me is it fake or not
The selfie stick is coming out tonight
The selfie stick is coming out tonight
Track Name: Road
Don’t try to save me
Don’t try to save me
Don’t try to save me
Don’t try to save me

I’ve been walking
Down this lonely road
There’s no one for me
And there’s only the cold stone
Don’t try to save me
I’ve been walking
Down this lonely road
There’s no one for me
And there’s only the cold stone
Don’t try to save me

It’s not warm
It’s not warm here
Leaves are brown, colors gone
But your rays shine on me
And you wonder why I always want to be alone
You should know that
All my life, I’ve been running from
The ones who loved, afraid to trust, love
Still you shine down on me
You’re the LA sun that never wants to let go

I’ve been walking
Down this lonely road
There’s no one for me
And there’s only the cold stone
Don’t try to save me

Don’t you think there’s something wrong with me, wrong baby
I cannot cry anymore, tears rolling back on their own
Only know how to be in control, of emotional
But I know, that you’ll keep holding on
Can’t look you in the eye
Cuz this is the part where I break your heart
Cuz it was never meant to be, ooh never meant to be
In your reality

I’ve been walking
Down this lonely road
There’s no one for me
And there’s only the cold stone
Don’t try to save me
I’ve been walking
Down this lonely road
There’s no one for me
And there’s only the cold stone
Don’t try to save me
