A Bayou-born soul sensation, Durand Jones got his start in the church after being forced to sing in the choir of his rural hometown Hillaryville, Louisiana, because his Grandmother thought he sang too much at home. When his music career took him to Bloomington, Indiana, he was selected to join the legendary Indiana University Soul Revue, and it was through his involvement that he met writer/producer duo Aaron Frazer and Blake Rhein. The three began writing original soul music, recording themselves straight to tape in the basements of Bloomington – and their debut album on the record label, Colemine Records.
