Mic Jones a.k.a. CHOIR BOY (www.the-choir-boy.com), a 24 year old Hip-Hop virtuoso hailing from Newark, NJ who has been touted by critics as “sicker than your average and definitely one to watch” (9/05 issue of Source magazine’s Unsigned Hype) for his astounding, socially conscious lyrics and remarkable, self-produced beats signs on to headline The CMJ Music Conference in New York City this November along side The Clipse, George Clinton & Cl Smooth to name a few.
For the past 25 years CMJ has been a beacon for the world’s best new music, introducing thousands of rising stars at showcases and concerts at New York City’s most important venues. Bands from R.E.M. Beastie Boys, Green Day, the Black Eyed Peas, Eminem, the Killers, and so many others helped launch some of music’s biggest and brightest careers, while legends like Patti Smith, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and James Brown have also graced CMJ’s stages, inspiring younger artists and seasoned professionals alike. In years past, keynote speakers such as David Bowie, Brian Wilson, Marilyn Manson, Moby, Queen Latifah, George Clinton, Ice-T and Perry Farrell have offered their insights on music, politics, technology and culture.
Today, more than a 100,000 music professionals, artists and fans converge in the music capital of the world every autumn for the CMJ Music Marathon and CMJ FilmFest from October 31st-November 4th, celebrating the very best in new music, film and pop culture. On November 1st, 2006 at 11pm CMJ’s legacy of spotlighting premier talent lives on as Choir Boy, the multi-talented emcee/singer/producer/musician performs at the world renowned, Bowery Poetry Club. Following his performance on the 3rd of November from 12pm to 12am, courtesy of MIH GROUP INC. (Choir Boy’s management team) Choir Boy will host a private, VIP only studio session in Midtown –NYC, near the CMJ Conference held at Lincoln Center.
Suffice to say, with a resume including Choir Boy’s self produced track, 100% original song named Catch My Breath featured in 2ksports’ NBA 2k7, a ringtone deal with UrbanWorldWireless, press coverage in Billboard Magazine, The Source, The Village Voice, The NJ Starledger, features on mixtapes hosted by Ice Cube, national and international radio spins (Japan, Scandinavia, Greece, the Netherlands, US-NY, NJ, LA, PA, etc.) and opening up for Grammy Award winners Arrested Development, this Hip-Hop phenomenon is destined to leave his indelible mark, making CMJ history while forging his own legacy on the music industry at large.
