Revitalizing, magnetic, and as tranquilly sophisticated and engaging as a coffee table book, this avant-garde face to soul music has honed his skills, polishing radio tunes like Disturbing Tha Peace’s “Celebrity Chick” featuring Ludacris, Chingy, and Small World on the compilation Strength In Numbers. With his raspy, airy and passionate falsetto, Steph Jones, the Mo City Alien, is looking to turn heads with his with studio album Mr. Ordinary. Using his stereo and his records to perform a music séance to inspire him, this former Ford Model called upon the finesse of Old School favorites like Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles and Al Green to create his 2008 studio debut.
