Grace Jones has had a stellar career.

The fact that she keeps herself relevant in modern music and fashion spaces makes her iconic career even more worth exploring.

Jones is most recently in the collective cultural consciousness by way of Beyonce's new disco-inspired album Renaissance. If you haven't binge-listened to the album in preparation for Bey's upcoming world tour --Jones is featured on track 10.


Did you know Grace Jones is from Central New York? It's true. Her family moved from Spanish Town, Jamaica to Lyncourt Selina, Onondaga County, NY when Jones was thirteen.

At 18, Jones began her early fashion career in NYC and Paris as a model. Several years later, she began her music career. We don't speak the ages of ageless icons. And yet, for context, Grace Jones started her music career around the same time as KISS.  KISS has been performing for 50 years. That's big.
