ina Jones’ life has been anything but easy, but one thing remains constant, her love for writing, singing and performing music. Gina began her musical career at the tender age of 9 singing and playing bass in her family’s band, the Ozark Rhythm Aires. She was a natural and from the age of 9 to 15 she performed in the band. The band performed at fairs and festivals and toured the Ozarks in Missouri, including Branson. By the age of 9 Gina had already cut her first record with the Ozark Rhythm Aires.
As a mere child Gina and the Ozark Rhythm Aires won numerous talent shows that led to opening for such acts as, Justin Tubb and Grammy Award winning Dottie West. At age 14, Gina and her brother, Stan Barnhart decided to venture out and began their own duo. It wasn’t long before they were signed to a recording contract with Universal Records in Nashville. Universal released a record which gained them exposure in the west where Gina lived at the time. Eventually, the duo with her brother ended and she decided to take a different direction and began singing and performing in a rock band. Before her rock journey was over Gina had performed with several bands touring the west in Idaho, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Washington, and California.
