Shay Jones – “KorKidz Journey Home”
“The Faces and Colors of Emotion Series came about as a way for me to visually demonstrate how the frightened child and spirit of us, which is invisible and colorless, has discovered a way to camouflage ourselves behind masks,” explains Jones. “Our emotions are colorful depending on the perceived situation, thereby putting a best face forward.”
Shay Jones – “Art Of Love”
Known as a remarkable singer-songwriter, Jones was a member of the pioneering industrial metal band MINISTRY founded by lead singer Al Jourgensen. Jones also shares a musical lineage as a distant relative in a creative and talented musical family…the Osborne Family. Clarence “Legs” Osborne played trumpet with Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, and Count Basie, and Jeffrey Osborne, four-time GRAMMY Award-nominated funk/R&B singer-songwriter, has enjoyed tremendous success as a songwriter, having written “All At Once” for Whitney Houston, and as a performing artist duetting with Dionne Warwick on “Love Power”.
