Before anyone knew his name, young record producer Fye Jones, was busy creating lanes for himself and others in the music industry. The Florida native is devoted to the music life and has had the opportunity to create music for artists under rap mogul, Young Jeezy and others throughout the Florida coast.
Jones has managed to keep a positive mindset, all while remaining focus on constantly delivering to the industry something vibrant, and creative. Being a successful business man and music producer takes hard work and consistent effort; notes of course can be taken from producers in the industry such as hit makers like Diddy, Pharrell, Timbaland, and Kanye, who now seem to move exclusively in the fast lane, effortlessly dropping their magic onto one platinum selling album after another.
For now, Fye Jones is operating in a different light, looking for opportunities wherever he can find them, or creating his own lanes. Consequently, he’s carved out a unique, multifaceted career for himself as a full-time business owner and music engineer. As a young black business owner, Jones aims to change the stereotype set out on young black male entrepreneurs in the music industry.

From promoting parties, managing festivals, events and more, he soon broke out into the entertainment field with his own management company known as, No Convo Music Group.

What are some pros and cons you have faced with owning a business?
Some of the downs to the business are simply just being responsible fully for some of the bad things that can happen in business. Every day is not going to be a good day for you. The ups of course are just being able to work when you want to work. I mean, I’m always working of course, but I don’t have to worry about clocking in for anyone, I answer to no one but myself.
What inspired you to choose a career in the music field?
I was always around music when I was a kid. Over time, I started developing a passion for it and music became my release. Whenever I was stressing or something was going on, I would just go to the studio to get away from everything. From there, I just fell into music and it took off from there.
Being a young business owner in your twenties, do you feel that our 20s is the best time to start a business?
Yes and no…I really don’t feel it’s ever a good time to start a business. It’s either you are going to do it or you’re not.
What advice would you give to any young entrepreneurs out there looking to launch their own business in music?
Keep your dreams to yourself, no matter what anyone tells you, always believe in yourself first. If you believe in you first, everything else will fall into place.
Some producers are happy just creating music and enjoying the lifestyle that being a well-known producer provides. However, producer Fye Jones is focused on more than just the fame of the music business. He plans to create a platform that gives back to the community and continue to service himself as a mentor to other young black male entrepreneurs in the entertainment industry. His music group recently signed it’s first two artists, ‘Pressure’ and ‘G.T,’ since debuting in the spring of 2017. His artist “Pressure’ has received two record deal offers after his opening performance for the Future concert in Orlando, late last year.
The best way to get ahead in life is to learn how to create your own lane and Jones is doing just that with his music brand!
