The Los Angeles native, Desiree Jones, knew she was meant to play music from a young age. At 3 years old, she was using the violin her mother had gotten her, like it was a guitar. When she turned 10, her parents bought her an acoustic guitar and signed her up for lessons. During this time, Desiree began teaching herself to play by ear. She started playing in a band at 14, and by 16, she was singing, writing and performing her own music. When Desiree was only 19, she was playing open mic nights and shows all over Los Angeles, from neighborhood bars to the Viper Room, the House of Blues, and The Federal bar. After taking a hiatus from music to pursue other ventures, she is back and better than ever.
Desiree Jones is available for booking at breweries, wineries, hotels, private events, weddings and nightclubs.
