With an eclectic sound and dynamic performance style, it’s hard to fit ASAINT into a categorical box. He stirs the hearts of Boomers and Millennials with his powerful anthems and charismatic stage presence. ASAINT stands for Accepted Salvation and I Now Testify, and he does so through a variety of artistic expressions: hip hop, spoken word, and soulful acoustic worship.
Brockne “Brock” Jones grew up in the small, East Texas town of Pittsburg. Although he was surrounded by loving family and friends, financial struggles and family turmoil cast a dark shadow over his childhood and adolescent years. To escape the monotonous country life, Brock bypassed a few local college football opportunities to attend Prairie View A&M University. From his freshman year in 2003, Brock began to lose his identity in the allure of the party life. The downward spiral chasing women and fast money left a trail of tears and ended with a brief jail visit. By the end of 2010, Brock had reached his breaking point. God revealed Himself and the incredible plan He had for Brock’s life after he opened his heart to God instead of trying to figure Him out. Brock’s life began to transform, and within months the ministry was birthed!
Many are shocked to discover that Brock had no musical training or experience. He had to totally depend on God! Almost instantly, Brock started writing, recording and performing hit songs like “S.W.A.G. (Saved With Amazing Grace)” and “Jesus Rockstar” at local youth events and community outreaches. By February 2013, Brock released his first album entitled Psalms of Life, Vol 1, featuring Grammy-award winning producer Maurice “Malex” Alexander and Tristan “2kool” Wilson. His debut album paints a portrait of the hand of God transforming Brock’s life by grace through faith in Jesus. ASAINT began to evolve as an artist, so in 2014 he took a brief hiatus from writing hip hop to focus on learning acoustic guitar and worship leading. In April 2015, ASAINT released his second project The Untitled Mixtape, which showcases his versatility and lyrical prowess. ASAINT is slated to release two highly anticipated EP’s in 2016: a hiphop EP by midyear and an acoustic worship EP by the end of the year.
The love of God has truly ignited a fire in ASAINT that compels him to share his life transformation both on and off the platform. ASAINT Music has blazed a trail across the globe, releasing a “sound that illuminates” nationally in Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, and Pennsylvania and internationally in South Korea and the Philippines. His music has touched lives in East Africa, and is also available on internet radio and digital streaming sites worldwide. Brock is committed to using his influence as an artist, founder of the TransformUs Movement, and a passionate follower of Jesus to deliver quality music infused with the Gospel message to a world that yearns for change.
