Maybe I am ambitious, but I think Sir Jones has the vocal ability and concepts to take him out of obscurity.

The first time I wrote about Sir Jon Lee, it was around this time in 2018. February 3, 2018, to be exact. It was for his song, ‘Finn: The Human’. It was a song about fighting his demons, watching the GRAMMYs, and the reality of not being established. This week, the Compton truth-talker released an incredible record called, ‘The City’.


Maybe I am ambitious, but I think Sir Jones has the vocal ability and concepts to take him out of obscurity. If his music is the only thing that needs to speak for his right to enter the mainstream, it will. Let’s celebrate the young king by increasing his Spotify plays; telling a friend to tell a friend about the new recording artist!
