"The Greatest Storii Ever Told"

Bringing Real Hip Hop Back

On a cold winter night, November 7, 1988, a new story was waiting to be told. It would be one to remember. In fact, one so unique and different that had never been heard before. A true star was born. Introduced to the world as Alison Story, this multi-talented artist will now and forever be known as Storii Jones. Who is Storii Jones, you ask? She is a true diamond in the rough, already getting interest from major and indie labels alike. Her showcase performances have gotten the attention of some very influential executives who are eager to follow her development.

The universe can't possibly be ready for this mind blowing artist who sings, dances, raps and is also a sensational songwriter, a true ENTERTAINER. Now, under A. Steele Unlimited, Inc., Storii is ready to be taken seriously as an artist and has connected herself with a powerful force and brand under the direction of Aleshia Steele.

"Storii is a true star and I'm excited to have her as the first artist signed to A. Steele Unlimited and present her to the world. She is from my hometown in Arkansas and we both know we came together for a true purpose and everything is moving in Divine Order." Says Aleshia Steele, Owner/CEO of A. Steele Unlimited, Inc. & the Texas Urban Music Summit..

Storii is originally from Magnolia, Arkansas and has a unique image, powerful lyricism, passionate work ethic and one-of-a-kind sound that will serve her well in today's hip-hop climate. She is a dynamic performer, superb vocalist, gifted rapper and consummate songwriter ready for the spotlight.

She has been entertaining crowds since she was 11 years old and knew then, although she was overwhelmed, it was a feeling that she never wanted to let go of. This would be the stepping stone to launching a career in the music business.

"All my life I've had nothing but hard times. I grew up the youngest of three children in a single-parent home. My mother did the best she could under the circumstances because there are not that many opportunities where I'm from. If you have a dream here, you are somebody. When I'm telling you a story, I want you to feel what I went through. My music is full of love whether I'm talking about relationships or what's happening on the streets or in life in general. My music is my real life experience and I want to share it with the world." Says Jones.

She didn't take her craft seriously until the first time she stepped on stage to perform at the age of 15. She continues, "I remember being on stage for the first time and feeling the passion, drive and excitement that I never experienced before. The energy was amazing and I knew then that music is my purpose in life, my destiny."

As USA TODAY recently reported, the time is ripe for new female rappers after a drought of many years that saw female MC's become all but extinct. The meteoric emergence of Nicki Minaj has now opened the gates for women to once again prove their power in the rap game as Lil Kim, Eve, Lauryn Hill and others have in the past. Storii Jones is a perfect artist to lead the new charge into the next decadeand bring real Hip Hop back.
