R&B singer-songwriter Coco Jones has signed an exclusive publishing agreement with Warner Chappell Music (WCM).

Her highly acclaimed EP What I Didn’t Tell You earned her five Grammy nominations at the upcoming 66th Grammy Awards—including a nom for Best New Artist. Jones has emerged as one of the most successful acts of 2023, embarking on her first headlining tour with sold out shows in 16 major U.S. cities.

“Music has been a constant in my life and the motivation that has anchored me since the very beginning,” Coco Jones says about the signing. “Discovering a team at Warner Chappell that shares that same passion and understands my voice and vision is very special to me.”

Born in South Carolina and raised in Lebanon, Tennessee, Coco Jones started her music career recording songs at the age of nine. She gained further prominence after starring in the Disney Channel film Let It Shine in 2012 and the sitcom Good Luck Charlie. Between 2014 and 2018, she released music independently on YouTube including the songs “Depressed” and “Just My Luck.” In 2019, she released an eight-track EP H.D.W.Y., followed by “Hollyweird” in 2020.

“Coco is a natural superstar,” adds Xavier Champagne, Senior Director, Urban A&R, WCM. “She’s a top-tier performer and has a special talent for songwriting that connects deeply with her fans. With five Grammy nominations to her name, it’s clear that R&B is in great hands. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with her on this journey.”

“Coco Jones has one of the most unique voices out there, and it’s great to see her having her moment as both a songwriter and artist,” adds Ryan Press, President, North America, WCM. “She’s helping pave an entirely new era of R&B and her hustle and work ethic have led to a year of breakthroughs.”
