About Kipper Jones

Born in Flint, MI, and raised in Los Angeles, the history of Kipper Jones is a timeline through the history of the modern Black music industry. Jones was Motown trained as a session singer at age 15, during the last of the Berry Gordy era, and as part of the venerable R&B/Funk outfit TEASE.

Kipper Jones has performed and recorded with a multi-generational mix of industry lore, but it's been as a songwriter where the legend of Kipper Jones is most associated. From crafting Vanessa Williams’ "The Right Stuff", as well as the double platinum follow-up, "The Comfort Zone", to the landmark Atlantic Records debut for artist Brandy, which included several Kipper Jones compositions, "I Wanna Be Down", "Brokenhearted", and the record setting, "Baby."

Along the way, he’s been a part of the debut and sophomore releases of Kenny Lattimore, (featuring the initial smash single, “Never Too Busy”), the Funk/Soul classic, “Somethin’ Deep” by R&B icon Chaka Khan, “In The Middle” (Produced by the late George Duke), from the classic motion picture, The Five Heartbeats, as well as original music for the Wesley Snipes produced, Sundance Film Festival Award winning documentary, A Great and Mighty Walk.
