About Canton Jones
In 2001, Jones launched his own gospel record label, CAJO International and independently released his first album, 2002’s 20 Years, 3 Months & 12 Days, which chronicled his journey to salvation. He released his second independent album in 2004: The Password and that same year, collaborated with lil iRocc Williams on his debut album, and wrote and performed a song, “You and Me,” for the compilation Holy Hip-Hop:Taking the Gospel to the Streets. At this time he was now a member of the choir of World Changers International Church and a solo performance at the church attracted the attention of the church’s youth pastor, who asked Jones to help him in the youth department. Not long after that, he was signed to the church’s Arrow Records label, an affiliate of EMI.
He released his major label debut, Love Jones, in mid-2005, which debuted at number 11 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart.Following the album’s success, Jones toured the US with over 200 appearances that year.
In November 2005, The Password was re-released nationally at the end of 2005 as The Password: Access Granted and earned him two Grammy® nominations. His success in 2005 saw him listed in The Atlanta Business Journal at number 19 in their 40 Under 40 chart of Atlanta’s rising stars.
A graduate of the prestigious Morehouse College, Jones currently resides in Atlanta with his wife and business partner, Ramona, their three sons–Justice, Dominion, and Canaan and daughter, Love.
