He started his career as a gospel singer and has since, managed a successful move into the R&B field. He got his start in R&B in 1980 when Norman Connors featured Jones on a track on his album, Take It To The Limit. The song was "Melancholy Fire".
Jones toured with Connors and in 1983, signed a deal with RCA. In the same year, he issued a five track mini-album Everybody Loves A Winner that had the top 30 R&B single, "I Am Somebody." His first full-length album, Finesse, was released in 1984 and established Jones as a force in the industry. The single "Show Me," reached #3 on the R&B charts. The second single, "Bring Back Your Love" reached #18 on the R&B charts.
In 1992, Jones moved to Atlantic Records. During the same year, Jones released the album, Here I Go Again. Its first single, "Here I Go Again", was his only single to reach #1 on the R&B charts. The second single, "I've Been Searchin' (Nobody Like You)" was also successful, peaking at #8 R&B. His album Here I Am was released in 1994 and had a minor hit with the ballad "Round and Round", which reached #24 on the R&B charts.
Since then, Jones released the album It's Time in 1998 and Feels Good (Peak Records) in 2002, neither of which were very successful on the charts. A radio friendly track from the latter "Feels Good", the romantic wedding song "From Now On", with jazz/soul song stylist Regina Belle, got some radio airplay.
In 2006, Jones released Forever: Timeless R&B Classics.
