When a singer/songwriter/entertainer almost single handedly drives 90s R&B to a new level finds himself the Ringmaster of one of the most powerful R&B/Soul homage bands in the country, what’s a guy to do? Start recording Dance Music, of course. That’s just what R&B/Soul music legend, Kipper Jones, (songwriter of hits like “I Wanna Be Down”, and “Baby” for Brandy, “The Right Stuff” and “The Comfort Zone” for Vanessa Williams”, “Never Too Busy” for Kenny Lattimore, and for films like the cult classic “The Five Heartbeats”, and much more), is doing! His new single is a glorious romp through the seminal soul classic “Wishing on a Star.” With the song.Jones is reimagining Soul classics with his signature style and groove.  Kipper’s career is a timeline through the history of modern black music, from performing and recording as part of the venerable R&B outfit TEASE, as well as working with an eclectic, multi-generational collection of musicians including Anita Baker, Teddy Pendergrass, Darius Rucker, Teena Marie, Eric Clapton, Lauryn Hill and Sly Stone. Kipper was the second Black male singer signed to Virgin America Records’ Black Music department, and released his debut solo project, “Ordinary Story”, in 1990.

For Kipper, “Soul” isn’t just about the music, it truly is about the soul of a people.
