112’s own Daron Jones has returned to share some deep, intimate feelings with the release of his new mixtape ‘The Unofficial Diary Of Daron Jones.’ The veteran singer-songwiter wanted this project to be a special gift to all of the fans that have supported him over his career. The accomplished and established artist is ready to take his solo mission to unforeseen heights. The Atlanta native first made a name for himself as a member of the group 112. Now plenty of love songs and awards later, he’s ready for a new stage. Daron’s goal is to establish a body of classic and timeless music that reﬂects the artist he is today. When asked about the inspiration behind the project, Daron stated:
“I wanted to create a body of work that would remind you of when R&B music sounded like a page out of your private diary…. It was important to me to create a body of work that would introduce who I really am vocally to my #TeamDaronJones family in a very personal way through music. I’m very grateful for every comment, like, & repost that my #TeamDaronJones family gives me in support of my new project. I understand how blessed I am to still be here doing what I love, and I owe each of you my very best!”
Daron also went on to say. “I wanted to remind you of when you first fell in love with R&B music, and how it made you feel every time your favorite song came on with this project. I wanted to create something that you could play no matter the mood or situation that you could play over and over. It was important to me to listen to what my #TeamDaronJones family wanted, so I asked them a series of questions and based this project off of their responses! I wanted them to feel 100% apart of it. I love music. I love the way it makes you feel and think. I just wanted to transfer that love into this project.”
The 8-track project features Daron’s take on classic songs by the likes of Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight and more. The mixtape is available for stream and full download below, enjoy!
