Bay Area Beats: Dom Jones

Ian Davis
Dom Jones

In our latest edition of Bay Area Beats we'll hear from Dom Jones. She came up in East Oakland, writing poetry and singing solos in church on Sundays. She grew up to be a writer, emcee, teacher, youth advocate, IT analyst -- and, the leader of her own music and media “empire”. Really -- the name of the multi-media company she founded and runs is called “Dom Empire”. Jones released her debut album, Wingspan, last year. And this month, she’s starting an entirely new venture: fulfilling a long-held dream and going off to Boston to attend the prestigious Berklee School of Music. In this edition of Bay Area Beats, Jones talks about her music, her politics, and where the two first intersected.
