     Jones, Royce

    He is a singer, drummer and percussionist who has been in the music business for nearly four decades.  He first appeared on an album as a singer with the group Odyssey in 1972 that recorded their self-titled album on the Motown label.  The following year he joined up with Steely Dan for their album Countdown to Ecstacy and then in 1978 he became a member of the group Ambrosia.  With them he could be heard on hits such as “Biggest Part of Me” and the albums Life Beyond L.A., One-Eighty and Road Island.  The group disbanded temporarily in 1985 and he worked as a session musician for the lead singer, David Pack, on his album Anywhere You Go.  Two years later Van Morrison called upon him, and he took up the position of drummer and percussionist on his Poetic Champions Compose.  His work has since been heard on several other albums by Steely Dan and Ambrosia and also as backing vocalist on Stephan Cohn’s self titled 2006 album release.
