He's Mr. Ordinary. Well that may be the title of the first single from Def Jam artist Steph Jones, but the man with the good looks and soulful voice is anything but ordinary.
I was first introduced to Steph Jones' music on The DL Chronicles soundtrack and could not stop singing the hook of Mr. Ordinary, a song that will no doubt do for him what "Fallen" did for Alicia Keys in the beginning of her career.
Originally from Missouri City, Steph is an L.A. based model and singer. Seth has been represented by Ford Models for the past five years and has appeared in numerous print ads, runway shows, and commercials.
When it comes to expressing himself through his music Seth doesn't hold back. "I thrive off of entertaining folk. Some call me an alien because I'm said to be weird or that I'm not of this world; but I've learned to equate that into my music. When it comes to my music I don't limit myself, so I'm able to switch styles, going from jazz, r&b, hip-hop, soul, alternative to pop without hesitation. All it takes is inspiration and I'll give a song what I feel it needs".
In an industry that has traded quality artists with legit voices for bubble gum pop music to turn a profit, Steph is a breath of fresh air. Keep your eyes and ears open for Steph Jones in 2008. If you're in L.A. this weekend make sure to catch him in concert at The Temple Bar in Santa Monica.
