In the studio, I create everydayMUSIC for everydayPEOPLE with passion, soul, and love in every note. With a love for mixing genres to create life changing music.
I've worked behind scenes as a writer and singer for local artist in the Chicago area (On and off stage). Crafting hooks and arranging vocals for emcees and other vocals. I was featured on the Stellar Award winning and Grammy nominated album from Pastor Charles Jenkins and Fellowship Chicago titled Best of Both Worlds on worship song entitled “Close To You”. The same album also had featured solos from vocal heavyweights including Anita Wilson, Karen Clark-Sheard, and Bishop Paul Morton. In addition, I've done session work on Charles Jenkins follow up album "Any Given Sunday".
I released my debut solo album, Conversations, released on April 14th, 2017, is a document of discussions he has had about women, God, family, and people he has met in his life journey. Conversations, co-produced by Jones and Lamar “Juslove” Smith, incorporates musical elements from Jazz, Gospel, R&B/Soul, and Alternative Music that are well blended to provide a unique listening experience with Isaiah’s creative approach to music.
