The Joneses are a family Christian and Gospel music group based in Wheelersburg, Ohio. The group is made up of Joy Jones, her son Ryan Jones, nephew Andy McGinnis and violinist Abbie Ailes! Joy is blessed and proud to travel with them as a family group. Family harmony is like no other. Ministry is a passion for the group, evident in their performances. God’s anointing is a major emphasis in all their lives and they love ministering to people everywhere.
The Joneses have been blessed to be part of National Quartet Convention in Pigeon Forge, TN for the past four years and have also experienced God’s favor in radio. The first single release from their latest CD (Come On, Come On) broke into the Singing News Top 80 at #58.
At age four, Joy began singing with her evangelistic family, the Bales Family. They traveled the United States, Canada, Haiti, Jamaica and Mexico from her youth into young adulthood. In 1996, Joy joined New Journey as a featured vocalist on may songs, including the group’s first top ten radio single. During this phase the group signed with Homeland Records in Franklin, Tennessee and signed with Parker Music Group booking agency in Nashville. The group was also invited to be part of multiple Gaither Homecoming concerts and videos… which was a tremendous experience. Other appearances were made on television programs such as TBN, Gary McSpadden’s Gospel Hour and multiple appearances on Daystar Television Network. In 1999 (while with New Journey), Joy was voted Favorite Soprano of the Year by the Kentucky Gospel Music Association.
In 2001, New Journey was disbanded by the group’s owner to pursue other career opportunities. During this time Joy and Tucker were offered other full time positions with other nationally known groups, but both felt impressed by God to embark on a solo ministry (Joy Jones Ministries), enabling them to travel their two young boys. Family and ministering as a family were their priorities. They traveled nationally with Joy releasing her first successful national solo single (Do It Afraid). Joy also made multiple appearances on Daystar Television Network and churches across the country. Joy’s husband Tucker, now serves as the group’s manager and sound tech.
In 2013, Joy and the boys decided to “join forces” and form the family Gospel trio: The Joneses. As a trio, they have made appearances on DayStar Television Network and continue to travel the country. In 2015, Derec decided to go off the road, he was recently married and wanted to work in their local church… including a weekly community youth Bible Study out of his home.
Andy McGinnis is from Friendship, Ohio and also has been involved in Gospel music from an early age. Andy joined the group in 2015 when Derec left. Andy has been ministering as a talented soloist for the past six years and is a very anointed songwriter. Andy’s lyrics and voice have been a blessing to those who have experienced his ministry.
In 2015, the group was again blessed to add violinist Abbie Ailes from Lancaster, Ohio. Abbie has been playing since the age of 5 and is also has passion for music. Abbie’s spirited violin solos are a huge hit with audiences everywhere! She is also a talented vocalist and joins in with the group on certain selections. Abbie is a versatile and tremendous addition to the group.
God is blessing and expanding the ministry to affect more people for the kingdom! Joy, Ryan, Andy and Abbie, The Joneses are excited to see what God’s plans are for them and where He wants to take them!
