Sugar Jones was a Canadian all-female pop group created on the first season of the Canadian version of Popstars in 2001. It consisted of five members chosen from thousands contestants who auditioned all over Canada in hopes of gaining a spot in the group. In 2001, they released their debut and only album, which was self-titled, in the summer of 2001, that featured the singles "Days Like That" (a cover of the Fierce song) and "How Much Longer", both gaining fair amount of airplay on Canadian Radio throughout 2001. Sugar Jones studio album was recorded at Metalworks Studios in Mississauga, Ontario. After mostly local Canadian success, the band eventually disbanded just the following year, in the Spring of 2002.

Members were as follows:
Sahara MacDonald (b. Jun. 19, 1977)
Andrea Henry (b. Dec. 14, 1978)
Julie Crochetière (b. Jul. 10, 1980)
Maiko Watson (b. Apr. 29, 1981)
Mirella Dell'Aquila (b. Nov. 26, 1981)

After disbanding, each member stayed active in music and started families with Julie and Andrea both releasing solo albums in 2008 respectively.
Sahara MacDonald released an album independently and starred in several theatre productions, such as Toronto's We Will Rock You. She is now as yoga instructor.
Maiko Watson went on to marry fellow Canadian R&B/Soul singer, Remy Shand, in 2002 before divorcing in 2006. She released her debut album in 2009 and has since remarried.
Mirella became a teacher at West Island College in her hometown of Montreal and is married to her husband Anthony De Luca. As of 2006, the couple have two sons together.
