exerpt from TAXI Review of single "Pain Stain"
What an interesting title and concept you have created here!
Nice work .I think that this title is very interesting not only because it's unique ,but also because the words it contains rhyme-and not an overdone rhyme either-great job. When you've come up with as many great traits in a title /concept, as you have here, you shouldn't be shy about showing off your brilliance. ...

(a snippet from )ROYAL JONES DECREE By John W Garand
... Royal Jones' ongoing search for soul is forever. Soulful Divas are his drug of choice!"I'm very impressed with the wide ranges divas such as Susaye Greene, Stacye Francis and Martha Wash possess," Royal Jones proclaims. "I've tried to emulate them and bring to a song what they perhaps might in my own inimitable way. Reproducing sounds, intensely scrutinizing and eventually developing a unique style."
Our Royal Jones has done just that with his sweet falsetto topping a high baritone
legit range covering four octaves plus.
No, it is not easy becoming the next great diva being a white man!
: I'm the art not the business! Perhaps, that is why it's taken so long to accomplish so little."
To record my own poetry and lyrics which I've scribbled since childhood, I've come full circle! Even without a hit record! Studying each nuance of such luminaries as Martha Reeves, Cissy Houston, and Marvin Gaye, it seems that's what I live for. ...and my 'favorites' list goes on and on."
...Singing in various choruses, choirs, and glee clubs did not prepare this backwoods New Hampshire native for life in the big City. Royal Jones opted out of theatre pursuits and continued his lifelong hobby of setting his poetry to music and singing heartfelt SOUL!
Royal Jones has kicked around NYC since 1979 seeking collaborations and a support network.
Work with Steve Sandberg produced fourteen songs on a "basement CD". Two of these collaborations were included in this new set of original songs from the 2004 CD "YOU BROKE THE CIRCLE" on the independent MBIBE MUSIC label both of which are given the special touch by CODEE. "RUFFLE IN A BAG OF PLAIN", the project with Steve Sandberg, was based on Royal Jones' childhood in a New Hampshire town where the biggest attraction was the chip factory.
Producer extraordinaire CODEE known for his work with Mary J. Blige, Michael Jackson, Nancy Wilson, Marcus Miller, LL Kool J ,Cathy Dennis, P Diddy. etc.. suited Jones soulful nature.
Royal Jones opines:
"Everything happens for a reason. CODEE and I really connected. Those sessions went on wonderfully and got us into some trouble as well. 'REALITY (play loud)' brought the police and everyone else in. We rocked the neighborhood with that one.. I sang my ass off as usual in the studio and I guess it paid off. I sure do hope so.
I ponder where did the years go? I moved to NYC in search of a music career. A bad case of stage jitters kept me from performing live. An appearance at OUTMUSIC at the Gay and Lesbian Center in NYC helped to curb those emotions slightly. There, I received much needed support and comparisons to a 'disco' Neil Young and an 'Amish' Sylvester! Friend Humor was back. Confidence was restored. I had something to build on! Back to the drawing board and new collaborations with 'CODEE'. All that I've kept bottled inside has poured forth onto my new CD 'YOU BROKE THE CIRCLE'. Thoughts that some say should have been saved for the therapist's visit are spilled out onto the tracks of this the newest CD . "A bohemian needing a therapist. Lurking in the East Village is Me, Royal Jones, waiting for his big break. Yes, Royal Jones would love to let the sun shine in. I'm grateful for anything and everything. So much has happened. The EP MAKE THINGS NICE featured four tracks that were recorded a block from the World Trade Center.. The remainder of the tracks were recorded at POLARISMUSIQWORKS in Soho NYC."
Old school, a throwback, you name it, I've been called it! You just can't categorize me. My eclectic set! When I get the funk out, watch out! And then a honey-sweet ballad like "Epiphany". What style can you truly lock me into?
My long awaited project is fini. ....
