AJ Croce live at the Red Line Tap
With a four star review in Rolling Stone, A.J. Croce's Cage of Muses is a shining milestone on the circuitous road that the singer-songwriter has traveled - from his debut as a jazz influenced blues-based artist to his evolution into a pop music iconoclast. But at this juncture, A.J. is more focused on the present and the future than the past. And after a three-year stint living in Nashville, he has come home to California.
In the span of a 20 year plus career, A.J. has headlined festivals, concerts and major listening venues worldwide. He has been seen and heard on shows including The Late Show with David Letterman, Austin City Limits, Good Morning America, E!, MTV and CNN, and has performed with a roster of artists that includes his idol Ray Charles, B.B. King, Carlos Santana, Rod Stewart, Aretha Franklin and Willie Nelson. A loyal and appreciative audience and glowing press from Rolling Stone to the New York Times confirms the appeal of A.J's genre-spanning music.
The son of legendary singer-songwriter Jim Croce. A.J.'s musical evolution was inspired by a broad spectrum of styles including classic rhythm and blues, folk, and British rock.
His two well-regarded releases for Private Music/BMG expanded his audience exponentially. With the support of BMG in 2003, A.J. founded an independent label, Seedling Records, to represent his music and that of other artists. Seven of his albums have subsequently been positioned in various charts including Top 40, College, AAA, Americana, and Jazz.
A dedicated family man, an adventurous artist and a confident creator; in this phase in his life and career, A.J. is focused less on expectations and more on instincts. And like the blues artists who influenced him, A.J. Croce continues to create compelling music with longevity, authenticity and truth.
