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. Motown trained as a session singer at 15, during the last of the Berry Gordy era and as part of the venerable R&B/Funk outfit, [a=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 [a=Vanessa Williams] "The Right Stuff", as well as the double platinum follow-up, "The Comfort Zone", to the landmark Atlantic Records debut for artist [a=Brandy (2)], which included several Kipper Jones compositions, "I Wanna Be Down", "Brokenhearted", and the record setting, "Baby".
A feverish ambition to pursue his own artistic vision, led to his Virgin Records release, "Ordinary Story" in 1990.
