FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Los Angeles, CA- Chris Jones (a.k.a. Jonezen) is a talented rapper/ songwriter/ guitarist/ producer turned public speaker. He’s an unlikely spokesperson who is currently working hard and maintaining his sobriety within a world that is packed with all the wrong choices.
Jonezen refused to go to rehab unless he could bring his recording studio. While in rehab he started writing and recording songs that are available via his debut mixtape- Live From Rehab. He landed a distribution deal with Famous Records/ Fontana/ Universal.
His first single, “Beautiful Disaster” is out now on his debut mixtape, Live From Rehab, which is available for free download at www.jonezenmusic.com. The mixtape is a collage of change. Chris says, “It has highs and lows, just like what I was going through at the time while in rehab.”
Chris wrote the second track, “Fathers Eyes” for his father who gave him an ultimatum to get his life together or risk the consequences. Chris adds, “The song grew out of the realization that family is most important and it became my salvation toward sobriety and happiness.”
Chris has always had a philanthropic side… long before entering rehab, Chris Co-founded Smash-Life Clothing with his brother Zak and his cousin. The clothing line promotes a healthy lifestyle and a positive attitude. Part of the proceeds from his company, Smash-Life, are donated to charities, organizations and foundations. They’ve already given to The Dream Street Foundation. Kristina Barron, Dream Street Auction Co-Chair says, “It was great having Chris and Smash Life be part of the Dream Street Family. Their donation helped raise funds to send kids with life threatening diseases to camp. They made a difference in the lives of children!”
Live From Rehab became an unlikely outlet for Chris as his music evolved into a force and encouraged him to do better. His journey from rehab to recovery to renaissance rapper is evident on his new mixtape, and his stories are woven intricately into his songwriting.

So proud of my brother, Chris Jones. He has become a huge inspiration to myself and so many other people. We went from living up to our band name, Outta Control, to now, where Chris is scheduled to be one of the main performers at an international AA convention!! Zak Jones, you are a true boss as well. We had some great, wild and crazy glory days, but it makes me so happy to see how even though we spread out, we have become even closer and are all pursuing a more positive approach to life! SMASH-LIFE my friends, it's the only way to be.
