There is no stopping Grammy Nominated Recording Producer and Artist GLENN  JONES - his new single, “Love By Design” featuring Grammy Award winner Regina Belle, hit the Billboard Smooth Jazz Charts as the Number 1 Most Added Smooth Jazz Vocal Record In The Nation. The man behind the soul hits ‘We’ve Only Just Begun’, ‘Stay’ and ‘Here I Go Again’, Glenn brings his live show to Hideaway for one sensational night!

Glenn Jones is still one of the most sought-after live performers in the music industry today with many chart-topping hits, including his signature songs. Jones voice penetrates the soul thru music and lyrics. Once you’ve heard “Here I Go Again”, “We’ve Only Just Begun (The Romance Is Not Over)”, “Baby Come Home”, “I’ve Been Searching”, “Show Me” and “I Wonder Why”, chart-topping hits from this gifted artist, there is no doubt that your soul has been touched. His inspirational single, “Everyday” was truly a family reunion for Jones. Jones is joined on vocals by his wife, Genobia Jeter-Jones and their niece, Y’anna Crawley. Y’anna is 2012 Stellar Award Winner for Best New Artist; she is also the 2009 Winner of BET’s Sundays Best. This song also features background vocals by national recording artist Dave Hollister. The result is a flavorful smooth blend of family love. Jones has shared the stage with many industry greats including Dionne Warwick and Aretha Franklin.

A native of Jacksonville, Florida, Jones fondly recalls, “Since the age of 4 or 5, I’ve always loved music.” Reared in the Pentecostal church, he often found himself risking punishment just to sneak a listen to the secular sounds of Stevie, Bobby, Marvin and Donny, in particular. Heavily influenced by the sounds of the time, Jones formed his first group, “The Modulations,” at the age of fourteen and was later discovered by the late, great gospel legend, Reverend James Cleveland.

Although he initially made his mark in the gospel arena, Jones’ voice caught the ear of an acclaimed musician, Norman Connors, with whom he toured and ultimately began performing R&B music. Having officially made the transition from Gospel to R&B, Jones joined the roster at RCA Records. Four years later, he signed with Jive Records and enjoyed success with his self-titled album, which spawned the hit singles, “We’ve Only Just Begun (The Romance Is Not Over)” and “Stay” respectively. His move to Atlantic Records produced contemporary up-tempo hits “Here I Go Again” and “I’ve Been Searching (Nobody Like You)”. During 1998, Jones signed with SAR for the independent release of “It’s Time”, which sold nearly 200,000 copies, via a combination of internet, event and retail sales. In addition, the album included the hit single “Baby Come Home”, a Top 5 R&B single that was one of the Top Ten Most Played Records for 2000, according to Billboard Monitor. Jones was overwhelmed by the success of this project and feels blessed to have an underground fan base that has sustained his career for over two decades.

In a recent radio interview, Jones tells the story about being backstage at a concert in Chicago. He was having a conversation with Peabo Bryson. Peabo told him Luther Vandross said, “There are only three R&B Crooners, Luther, Peabo and Glenn Jones. I was like wow, really.”
