Caroline Jones is an American country music singer and songwriter and a radio host. Her most recent album, Bare Feet, was released in March 2018.

Early life

Caroline Jones was born in New York City to Sonia and Paul Tudor Jones, and raised in Greenwich, Connecticut. She attended the Professional Children's School in New York City and later New York University where she studied creative writing. She took singing lessons when she was nine, and wrote her first song when she was ten. She learned to sing opera and jazz under Andy Anselmo, and she also learned how to play various instruments including piano, guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, and Dobro. She was for some time more interested in pop, rock and R&B music until she visited Nashville when she was 16 or 17, and switched her interest to country music.

Career

In 2010, Jones launched The Heart is Smart initiative, which included performing in schools and colleges and providing music workshop for students. She also wrote and produced her debut album herself in New York City and Nashville in 2010, playing multiple instruments on the album. In January 2011, Jones self-released the album, Fallen Flower. She quickly followed by another three albums the following year. In 2013, Jones became the host of Art & Soul, a radio show on SiriusXM's Coffee House interviewing musicians on their music and songwriting.

In 2017, she opened for Zac Brown Band and in 2018 Jimmy Buffett. Through Buffett, she became signed to his Mailboat Records, and she also collaborated with Buffett on a song.

Jones was listed as one of the 10 need-to-know new country artists by Rolling Stone in 2017, and one of 15 country artists to watch by Billboard in 2018. Jones released Bare Feet in March 2018. Jones wrote all the songs in the album, which was produced by Ric Wake. In 2019, she was listed among the 40 Under 40 List put out by Connecticut Magazine.

Jones' single, "Chasin' Me", entered the Mediabase country chart at number 50 for the week ending June 1, 2019.
