Kentavius Jones was born to DJ and musician parents in Champaign, IL. Growing up in a house filled with music, Kentavius naturally took to it at a young age. Some of his earliest memories were listening to Stevie Wonder, Miles Davis, Eric Clapton & Jimi Hendrix on vinyl with his father. “I remember being fascinated with the extensive collection of sounds & tunes he had.”
When Kentavius was 10, he moved to Easton, MD. Being the new kid Kentavius felt isolated & spent much of his time working on drawings, and art as an outlet.
By the time Kentavius got to high school he came out of his shell. Through friendships he gained interest in studying music & was determined to become an accomplished musician. He submerged himself in a sea of sound & discovered new music wherever he could. Through choral singing and classical guitar lessons, Kentavius learned the fundamentals of writing, playing guitar and singing.
In 2003 Kentavius started his first band & as the lead vocalist and guitarist, he developed a swoon-worthy stage presence while honing his unique brand of soulful rock.
