At the age of 13, Jones was discovered by R. Kelly and signed to his record label for development as an emerging talent. By age 16, she signed with Capitol Records, and in 2003 she auditioned and was selected to the Pussycat Dolls. After being indoctrinated into the girl group, she went under the tutelage of famed music producer Jimmy Iovine. She later left the girl group in 2005.
Since leaving the group, Jones has developed her career as a solo artist. Her solo singles include "Hollywood Doll" and "Take It Off," from her first two albums, as well as Confessions of a Hollywood Doll and Kaya, which have become mild dance hits. Jones also sang backup for Mick Jagger on the Golden Globe winning song "Old Habits Die Hard" from the soundtrack for the movie Alfie.
Jones has also developed "Hollywood Doll" as a brand, which designs and manufactures a line of dolls, and fashion and beauty products for young girls.
Kaya is currently[when?] touring and preparing for the release of her new album "Rise of the Phoenix" released in 2014.
Jones was born in Toronto to a Native American father and a Jamaican mother. She spent the first several years of her life living throughout the Caribbean before moving to the United States and growing up in Las Vegas. As a young child, Jones spent her time learning to act, sing and play the violin. Jones currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
