ALIBI JONES new artist out of Buffalo, N.Y.
For ALIBI JONES music has always been an important part of life. “Music and writing have always been integral parts of my life and development as a person. Ever since I was a little kid I’d write short stories and poems. When I started listening to Hip-Hop and Rap music in my teens, the transition from poetry to writing rhymes was smooth and natural.”
He describes his style as Poetic with a Strong Flow. “My extensive vocabulary and dense wordplay make my sound unique. I bring my own flavor to the track. My alter ego is “Syllable Jones”, an emcee with a poetic style with a strong emphasis on dense syllable placement and flow.”
ALIBI draws influence from a wide range of musicians…Aesop Rock, MF Doom, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Howlin Wolf and ELO. “I love all different genres of music. I am inspired by artists that can truly illicit an emotional response from me.”
His favorite artists are ‘Da Governor of Queens’ Royal Flush, El-P, Cannibal Ox, Louie Armstrong, R.L Burnside, Conway, Benny the Butcher, Rick James, Jim Croce and Johnny Cash.
ALIBI JONES is currently working on his full length album, “ The Vanishing Angle“, which drops in the Fall of 2019. Look out for the visuals for, “ Rapunzel” and “Deep Purple” available for viewing and downloading on the YouTube Channel.
