Jones' album Sooner Or Later was released independently on 6 April 2011, and features Grammy Award winning musicians Dan Warner and Lee Levin. The song "Beautiful You" was featured in season four of Dance Moms in the episode "Decisions Decisions".
In 2004, Jones was named Artist Of The Year at the annual Musicoz Awards, which led him to record his 2006 debut album 10 Letters at Australia's Sony Music Studios. A music video was made for the track "Day After Day", filmed in Kiama New South Wales, featuring a grand piano placed in the middle of a seaside quarry. The video received airplay on Foxtel, and the track went on to become the 'Hot Pick' in the inaugural Pacific Songwriting Competition. In early 2008 the album '10 Letters' was repackaged and remixed as a 5 track EP titled 'The Way I'm Missing You', and became available worldwide through the iTunes Store.
