ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Venus (to Earth) was Venus Jones' first CD and it was released to rave reviews.

Here's an excerpt from an article entitled "Speaking her Piece" by the St. Petersburg Times

Speaking her piece

On her debut CD, poet Venus Jones uses rhythm and soul to take listeners on a series of journeys.

Jones' 12-track album begins with an affirmation, Flame, where Jones speaks about being in universal harmony, not looking for fame but instead "transmitting insight to ignite your flame."

She takes the listener on a rhythmic journey of dance in Dance with Time and talks bluntly on why it's okay to cry openly in Cry Out.

Jones assumes various characters in the album: a single mother struggling with her baby's father in I Need a Man; a waitress in a rush to get home to watch a Mike Tyson fight in Assistance; and an older woman who wants to let loose and dance in Dance with Me.

A native of Kansas City, Jones grew up in Akron, Ohio. She earned a bachelor's degree in communications and voice at the University of Akron. She has performed in plays and has done voice-overs for radio and television commercials.

The track Earth to Venus talks about the relationship between the planet Venus and Earth as well as Jones' relationship with society's standards.

"Venus is the only planet that rotates in an opposite direction from the Earth ... That's me," Jones says.
