Kelly Love Jones

My artistic, creative, and cultural work is centered at the heart of healing, empowerment, and forgiveness. I like to call my music New Orleans Swag Music because it is influenced by and mixes in the traditional rhythms of the Second-Line, R & B, funk, and Indian heritage. It also celebrates legendary artists and their traditions, like Deacon John and Allen Toussaint who through their musicality and songwriting (respectively) made available New Orleans' soulful and spirit-filled culture, the bayou landscape, and its colorful heritage to people around the world. My music is in fact a good bowl of gumbo, mixing in all these traditions to produce songs that honor love, well-being, ancestry, family, tradition, and good times.
