Paris Jones - Singer/Songwriter
Dressed in whatever fits his feelings instead of what’s in, eclectic and new-age, expressionist, Paris Jones was born Patrick Campbell on July 12, 1990 in Inglewood, California. Raised in Palmdale, California, Patrick began dabbling in music before he was even a teen.
After going to School in Virginia, Campbell, simply known as P.J. back then, met his management team and began solidifying his career through music instead of sports.
Whether playing the drums or discovering his next song singing in the shower, Jones’ method to his lyrical madness is, simply put, staying clean. Writing nearly all songs in the shower to the extent of creating show ideas and video concepts, here Jones finds his inspiration flows like water. However, Jones’ musing of staying clean goes deeper than just the surface area of things, in which most are used to.
With a refreshingly different way of thinking, Jones likes to disrupt the mediocre and common. His purpose: “Facilitate change, create a new group of leaders, and take them into a new realm of thinking through his artistry.“ Pulling off his headphones clamoring Mad Mix Mustang Mash-ups long enough to explain his name, Jones’ sometimes oxymoron of a quiet demeanor speaks elevation, which his music also represents. “Paris is for the finer things. People have joneses for shoes, etc. I have a Jones for living above the mediocre lives most are expected to just accept and live.”

When did you know you wanted to be an artist?
It’s not something I discovered. It’s something that was always there. As far back as I can remember I’ve always have been making music and performing. I just needed to focus on presenting it.
How does your personal story/background influence your work?
It influences everything I do. My music is an expression of what’s going on in my personal life. Life is the inspiration behind me work.
Which of your works are you most proud of?
My recent work. Songs a recorded with a couple producers overseas. One called “Promise” with a producer named LA-NO from Amsterdam and another called “You” with a producer named Fear Club from Paris. And lastely a song called “Thrills” with Animus Volt from Germany.
What is the hardest part about being a professional artist?
At this point nothing. I did not feel any restrictions or limitations. I make art whenever I feel like it. I am free. That is the greatest place to be.
What advice would you give aspiring artists who come from minority or under-represented groups?
Be true to who you are and your artistic expression. Do not let anyone dictate your creations. No one can tell you how to be You. You are the only You that exists and will ever exist. You are fearfully and wonderfully made, you are one of a kind. Peace!
