[lastfm]Love Jones Girlz[/lastfm] are: Taylor Jones, Claire Jones, Victoria Strata and Noni Storm Chinn. The NYC-based group have been together for two years and describe themselves (on their Facebook page as a mix of “[lastfm]Rihanna[/lastfm], [lastfm]Kelly Clarkson[/lastfm], [lastfm]Lauryn Hill[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Janet Jackson[/lastfm] combined.” They cite influences as wide as [lastfm]Adele[/lastfm], [lastfm]Whitney Houston[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Lady Gaga[/lastfm], and are skilled at dancing in addition to singing. Their past two years have been spent writing, rehearsing, and creating the bonds of friendship that will serve them well as they enter the somtimes-harsh world of the music business. “We’re ready,” they say, when asked about taking that next stop onto the national stage.
