Chicago native Rich Jones started off the month of November on the right foot with the release of his new album The Shoulder You Lean On. Jones has been known for his ability to mix different music genres, implementing classic styles into new styles of hip hop production.The Shoulder You Lean On is no exception, kicking off with the single “Coin Toss”, an extremely catchy and well put together intro song to an overall mellow, yet complex album by Jones. Jones has been solidified in the game with great melodies, and an impressive spectrum of capability. Jones closes out 2018 with seven solid songs that give us a dive into the hand of talents he possesses, heavy kicks and diverse guitar riffs just to name a few. For first time listeners of Jones, throughout the album you will be able to see how diverse his musical pallet is, with guitars, hip hop beats, singing and rapping included in its entirety. The project features vocal flair to give it a easygoing feel, and accompanies that with great production snippets that are shown from start to finish.
