Timeless, classic, smooth, real - just a few words that describes the music
of Ramona Estell. However, it seems difficult to categorize her into any one
style of music. Her listeners experience a plethora of sounds, from a neo-soul
influenced song that can easily be heard at any open mic or cipher to a straight
ahead ballad that, for some, has been paralleled with the sound of Duke Ellington
himself. She often entraps time with a poetic feast of techno, jazz, neo-soul, and
pop. Simply put, the best way to embark on the journey of Ramona Estell is to
just sit back and enjoy the ride.
With a vibe reminiscent of Sade and Lauryn Hill, a vocal range suggestive of
Anita Baker and Dianne Reeves, and a passion for music that evokes memories
of the late Sarah Vaughan and Carmen McCrae, Ramona Estell joins this
pantheon of talented soul sisters with an eclectic style that's definitely all her
own. Her lyrics reflect her love for music, life, and love. She believes that life
lives through each word a person speaks, writes, or sings. Her musical mission is
to spread love throughout the world.
Ramona Estell more than holds her own on and off the stage. In fact, there
are very few artists who have remained as creatively consistent as the
singer, songwriter, producer and quintessential businesswoman behind Cajo
International - an independent entertainment empire she built alongside her
husband, national recording artist Canton Jones. With her training at Booker T.
Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, TX and
Spelman College in Atlanta, GA, in addition to her studying the production and
writing styles of her husband, she has catapulted into uncharted territory in the
Ramona Estell - the woman that will bring life and love back to a cynical world,
a world that anxiously awaits.
