Get My Mind Right – Manchild Jones
Manchild Jones was born Daryl Jones II, on December 3, 1980 in Los Angeles, CA. Manchild was exposed to music at an early age because his father is a musician. His father is a bassist who has played with such acts as Billy Preston, Lakeside, and Donald Byrd. This was a major influence in Manchild’s life. Aside from his “Pop”, Manchild’s influences range from legends such as Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix, to Big Daddy Kane and Eric b. and Rakim.
Manchild Jones has been performing on stage since the age of 8, and at the age of 17, he was the first artist to be signed to a recording contract on 45 Pro Records (an independent company formed by Paul Allen, who is currently an executive producer on the reality show “R&B Divas”) During this time, Manchild’s single “One Man Syndicate” was placed in the top 30 hip hop charts of Hits Magazine at #16. The single also had multiple spins on Power 106’s Friday Night Flavor show, and 92.3 the beat’s Soul Assassins show in L.A. Copies of the single sold out of stores such as Fat Beats, Stacks Vinyl, and Hollyhood Hip Hop. Since the company dissolved, Manchild has been recording and performing as a freelance artist. More recently, Manchild’s music has had multiple spins on 88.7 FM KSPC which services the Greater Los Angeles Area. The single “All Alone” charted at #1 on KSPC’s Hip Hop top ten.
Currently, Manchild Jones is in the process of putting the finishing touches on his forthcoming debut album. The album, entitled “In Due Time”, is due to be released in the summer of 2014, and features the single “Get My Mind Right” which is currently available worldwide through TuneCore.
