PHOENIX, AZ – Those born between Jan. 20 and Feb. 18 fall under the star sign Aquarius. They’re people who are typically shy and quiet, with bursts of eccentricity and energy. They’re deep thinkers and highly intellectual people who love helping others, and they’re able to see people without prejudice which means they often offer unique solutions to the problems of the world.
This perfectly describes Arizona Hip Hop artist Aquarius Jones. He’s a man who wants to help people by encouraging them not to give up when times get tough and by providing them an element of entertainment that will be uplifting and motivational. His music does just that.
He started singing and rapping at the age of 9, and loved it so much that he hasn’t looked back since. He has always wanted to be an entertainer – it’s something he said he was born with. By the age of 16, he began to pursue music seriously and has been intentional about focusing on the lyrical content of his songs and pairing that with a “swag fashion sense and pure passion for the art.”
“My sound and style comes with passion, hunger and a love for music,” he said. “I like to put out good music – dope music that people can understand and relate to. Music they can sing along to. I like to get the fans to rock with me when they hear my music.”
It hasn’t always been the easiest road, however. Aquarius recalls many times when he’s had setbacks in his pursuit of relevance in the music industry, but he’s always maintained a persistent attitude.
“When times get hard, you want to give up. But there’s always someone out there to push you and keep you believing that one day your time will come,” he said. “For me, that one person in particular who supported me and had my back is my manager, Gary Biscoe of Gmajesty Entertainment. I met him at a show and after he saw me perform, he pulled me to the side and asked if I worked with anyone and how serious I was about my career. We continued to connect after that and the rest is history.”
Together, the two have worked on Aquarius’ most recent project, a 15-song album called “All-In.” It was recorded at DigiLabs in Phoenix and The Saltmine in Mesa, Arizona in conjunction with Gmajesty Entertainment, a music artist management company. Aquarius describes it as an album filled with enjoyable dance music with themes that relate to the grind and hustle of everyday life.
“The inspiration was the growth and development of my career,” he said. “I put everything into this album. It really relates the journey of being able to tell the world and my fans what it took to get to where we are now. It took a lot of hard work to get here. And this album lets fans know that though it may look easy behind the scenes, there’s actually a lot of blood, sweat and tears that went into it. Nothing is easy. This kind of success comes with a lot of hard work.”
One of the hottest tracks on the album is “IG.” It’s an upbeat song that Aquarius said takes a critical look at social media and the addictive pull it can have on an individual.
“Have you ever had those moments when you don’t know what to post or when to post, or if your content is even good enough to post?” he said. “You want to grab someone’s attention and you wonder if people are taking you seriously. The anxiety that comes from social media is real, and that’s what this song is about. It’s up-tempo and people will definitely be able to dance and vibe to it. There’s also a little bit of comedy to it. It’s a pretty great song and people love it.”
Aquarius said one of the things he’s most grateful for these days is the response from his fans. It means a lot to him to know that they like what they hear and that they always want more from him. He said he’s very excited about dropping his debut album “All-In” in early 2020. Until then, he’s planning to drop a new single called “Party” on Dec. 11. It’s the perfect song for the holidays and will be the hit song of New Year parties all across the U.S.
